    "Good job while in school"

    I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors part-time

    Pros

    The discounts were great. I enjoyed selling guns and learning about the products on 3point5.com. Also I enjoyed helping the customers

    Cons

    Managers micromanage even small tasks. I felt like I had no opportunity for advancement. Never had a raise during the couple years I worked there, and was told I would.

    Advice to Management

    Give opportunities for your better employees for promotion. It shouldn't take a person with a BS in Business Management four years to move into a management position while managers with no college and disrespectful attitudes rule the store.

    Pros

    You gain experience talking to customers and helping them find what they need. Co-workers are fun to talk to. Overall a good company to work for, especially for students.

    Cons

    Very early hours for freight unloading. You would come in at 4:00 and stock shelves until 8:00 when the store opened. Then if you were not done with inventory, you had to stock shelves out of a shopping cart.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with schedules.
