    I worked at City Sports full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    City Sports had an extremely relaxed and productive environment. The product that they sold were great. As being an athlete I could stand behind their products. The staff was also extremely nice and friendly.

    Cons

    The only bad part of the job was the amount of standing that one had to do. Obviously standing is part of the job however,

    Advice to Management

    You guys did a great job, however there were some moments when management was not as professional as you could be.

    Have a lot of freedom to express yourself visually. Flexible schedule and nice people to work with who are helpful and want to succeed.

    Good people to work with. Discounts were ok, hours were fairly flexible, management was decent as well. The employees are all fairly committed to the work.

    Retail work is fairly boring in general. The pay wasn't great, the benefits weren't great and you don't really get much of a break during the day.
