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

Pros

Lots of online training opportunities. Great customers.

Cons

Payroll constraints, constant planogram changes. Extended holiday hours are ridiculous for no extra sales.

Advice to Management

Free up payroll, don't have us spend hours changing planograms for little or no reason. Leave store hours alone even for holidays.

    Pros

    Smaller Big Box company with opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Generally closed minded to new ideas and vendors. All power lies with the buying group. A lot of backstabbing amongst upper level management. Large power struggles and inexperienced management. Very "redneck" mentality. If you did not learn retail at this company, you are considered an outsider.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and spend some time outside of Katy, Tx. Learn how the real world operates. Treat your employees with respect. Don't let sexual bias get in your way of success.


  2. "Footwear"

    The department is never perfect which kind of makes it hard to clean up at night.
