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

Pros

20% Discount
It's a job
you get paid
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!

Advice to Management

    I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time

    Pros

    Some very nice people to work with. Store discount is great.

    Cons

    There are so many cons to working as a BA at Academy. Upper management is very military driven and most BA's and PM's come from a military background or something other than an actual BA or PM. Highly dysfunctional, zero communication with management, constant changes because of the huge revolving door of people coming and going. Org Chart changes daily, procedures change daily, zero help from Project Managers. If you are looking to find a job where you can play on the internet for just OK money (actually the pay is very low) this is the place you will want to apply. If you want challenge, forget it.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure your IT Department
