I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexable schedule made it easy to attend college. Good vacation policy, after 5 years you get 3 weeks and after 10 you get a full month.

Cons

Company has lost its family owned feel and has become more corporate. This was the main reason for staying this long. The company used to close on major holidays and is now open for Easter.

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

    Pros

    None really, the company sees you as completely replaceable.

    Cons

    Bad pay, zero hours, and hardly any room to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting your employees.


  2. "It was a good learning experience as far as SKU's and organizing shoes, but besides that it's a remidial job."

    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.
