I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It is a relatively decent atmosphere and there is a break room. It is a good learning experience and there is room for growth over time.

Cons

The kids aisle gets very crowded, crazy and busy. Sometimes the customers are too much to handle because they let their kids run around and do whatever they want to do with many boxes of shoes.

Advice to Management

They should listen to their employees more and try to help out the late night closing shift crew so they don't get out so late.

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

    Pros

    If you clock in on time, get your work done well, and make an impression on management you will have advancement opportunities within the store fall into your hands. Relatively simple work and the people make long or busy days worth it.

    Cons

    Seems to be a lack of communication from management on down to regular associates. Unless you talk to the managers or people who do you can go a long time without hearing about what should be considered important information. Also the department lead positions don't get paid nearly enough for what they have to be responsible for.

    Advice to Management

    Better Communication.
