    Pros

    20% Discount

    uniforms

    Cons

    The company is extremely disorganized and does not care about the hourly employees. This is NOT a good job for college students, people with families, the faint of heart, or people who enjoy more structure less chaos. Employment here should only be a last resort or temporary!! RUN!

    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.
