Review Highlights

Pros
  • Made some friends working there but that's about it aside from the employee discount (in 59 reviews)

  • The discount is good at cost plus 10% (in 23 reviews)


Cons
  • Management would often pressure associates to sell extended coverage plans, insoles and rewards and if goals were not met, associates take the blame (in 17 reviews)

  • The compensation is not good unless you are upper management (in 34 reviews)

    I worked at Sports Authority part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Made some friends working there but that's about it aside from the employee discount

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, the hours suck, the managers are completely clueless and are terrible at their jobs for the most part with a few exceptions. Corporate always is changing the way you do things and they make store policies that you have to follow but yet if a customer calls them and complains about the policy you have to make an exception for them so corporate makes you look like the bad guy for following their own policy. I would never recommend working for this company
