I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very open to advancement opportunities, easy enough place to work, zoning standards higher than most companies. Pretty good pay. Co-workers make it the place that it is.

Cons

Management gossips more than any associate there and will not hesitate to hold personal grudges to stamp out any possibility for advancement if they are caught gossiping.

Advice to Management

Needs to be more level headed management structure, they feel as if they are above the rules. Show up late, leave early. Gossip constantly. Show extreme favoritism.

    I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good employee benefits,fun merchandise, employees come together as a family easily.

    Cons

    huge disconnect between home office and store level.programs are implemented without thorough testing and evaluation to make sure all components of the store: technology to personnel to how things ring up in a register fail more than they should

    Advice to Management

    there should be a program set in place where no one in the home office from human resource to buyers to distribution center employees don't start their positions until they spend time maybe even a minimum of 6 months working in an actual store to see how their decision-making effects the company at the store level.this company is very loose and sloppy with their procedures and follow up. It could make so much more profit if it would shore up some areas and let the store directors run their store and quit being a "big brother" entity.


  2. "Asset Protection"

    Pros

    Like Academy Sports as a sports store, thought working there would be fun.

    Cons

    You do nothing to stop, apprehend or prosecute shoplifters. As an asset protection associate I am tagging merch. and doing nothing to reduce theft.

    Advice to Management

    Why are asset protection associates doing inventory work, store to home processing, and absolutely nothing in regards to theft. Other than making a tag of the stolen product and logging it in a binder?!?
