I have been working at Sports Direct part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The wage is ok and the store has a good reputation/ cheap prices. 15% discount for employees.

Cons

I was offered time and a third for working Sundays and told I would get paid for working over time. This did not happen as my co-workers and I were made to sign a second contract and were rushed to do so. The management do not treat the employees well and there is little to no chance of promotion. The shutters are closed at closing time and the employees are made to stay behind and clean the store without pay for overtime. Shifts and working hours change often.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Attempt to create a team spirit or some sort of pleasant working environment rather than putting a heavy work load on a disgruntled, unhappy workforce.

    I have been working at Sports Direct part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The staff are all ususally very nice t work with, discounts are good and the company is very supportive

    Cons

    i have barely had any shifts in the past two months, in february i earned £15 in one 3 hour shift and this month i have had 5.5 hours of shifts this month, as i have to pay for food, you can imagine how hungry i've been this past month

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management should spread the hours around staff more equally, i believe a couple of hours off the regular full-time staff each week would not be too bad and the newer, part-time staff could get a bit more money in their pockets then

    I have been working at Sports Direct full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    15% discount, and flexibility when you casual staff

    Cons

    You have to buy even your own freaking UNIFORM!
    And now the "fun" starts when you end up being a full timer, you basically have to work as a slave for free! They keep you extra one or two hours every day, bare in mind that you are working 10h a day already anyway, stock takes you end up doing 16h or more and possibly have to work the next day getting as much as couple hours of sleep. Rude behaviour from management, and higher it goes the ruder the people get! Workload is meant to be for at least 5 people which you have to handle all alone and serve the customers at the same time! Discrimination, shouting, swearing you name it, you got it in this company!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, it goes higher up to the company policies, they have to do what company tells them to do!
