    Pros

    The best thing is that the hours given for this department are early in the morning and not working on the weekends.

    Cons

    Having limited associates in this department is very difficult because of the quantity of product that arrives and a limited time to finish the job on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Give recognition and praise to the receiving department for all the physical hard work it takes to achieve the company's goal.

    Pros

    I love the work culture and the way the Varsity Volunteer program works. It has enabled me to help in the community as a team.

    Cons

    Even though I am a salary employee I am forced to clock in daily. I would work more hours, but there have been some past problems and now they make everyone clock in

    Advice to Management

    Have a clearer vision and focus on sales more than corporate.

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount. People you work with make it a fun working environment. Care a lot about non-profit and community.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! The systems are very out-dated making it almost impossible to get work done. Poor training, they put people in positions that are to much for them to take one. Inconstancy in managers and expectations across different teams. Very poor communication within teams that work closely together. Career Paths don't make sense! There are people that are very over qualified for their positions and get stuck there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you employees! Communication and consistency across teams is key. Employees will start to leave if you don't listen to them. Make a career path based on experience and performance, not time.

    Pros

    Discount is perhaps one of the best Friendly and Helpful Co-workers Managers are friendly too Company does take the customer sevice part seriously, most customers are offered great customer service.

    Cons

    Low pay unless you're a fulltime employee (management) Low Payroll budget Very little training (If you want to thrive then you must learn on your own) Room for advancement does not exist

    Advice to Management

    Consider spending more money on some advertisement it would help improve trafic in stores. stores are located on demographically good areas but actual physical locations of the stores are questionable.
