Current Employee - Receiving in Evans, GA
Current Employee - Receiving in Evans, GA
Approves of CEO

Pros

I like the hours i work. 4am to 1pm. Employee discounts. medical and dental plans are good.

Cons

the employee discount is going from 25% off to 15%. though that is still decent. it feels like members only if you're not in the click of management and junior management. there's a lot of gossip and trouble making in parts of management.

Advice to Management

work opposite the team leader. work with the employees not only the team leader.

    Former Employee - Camping Associate in Fort Worth, TX
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Get to help people. I was in camping and always doing something. Got to work the amount of hours i wanted. I did more physical work which is what i liked (like moving grills, other big objects, etc.) If you are not wanting that then other departments would be better suited like apparrel, or footwear, or hunting and fishing (who by the way I can not think of once helped me).

    Cons

    Some of the people are pretty weird, I felt I knew about just as much as the managers after working there for like a month, and closing sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe to check in on the managers.

    I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time

    Pros

    -Family Oriented
    -Good Management in Demand Planning

    Cons

    - Not a lot of innovative thinking
    - Not open to outside ideas or practices

    Advice to Management

    Don't get caught up in what used to work. Retail in today's world is very competitive and unforgiving. Allow for some room for new out of the box thinking.
