Pros

Employee Discount
The regular employees are pretty cool

Cons

Little to no training
Consistent hours
Terrible managers

All they care about is AOS and the Sports Authority cards. Even if you get alot of sales its seldom you will get credit for it. There's never enough employees in the store so you're always doing more what you were assigned to pick up the slack. They hire a bunch of people so everyone gets little hours.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    The employee discount was one of the best I have ever heard of, the dress code is very relaxed, from what I have noticed at other stores, co-workers of the same rank get along very well.

    Cons

    Hours are extremely inconsistent (I personally was forgotten to be put on the schedule multiple times), managers are extremely unorganized, never presented with opportunities for advancement within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Review expectations of managers and how they should plan schedules.

  2. It's a decent place to work.
