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

Pros

It is a very easy job that requires little thought. It would be hard to get fired from this store. The only real way to get fired is to steal or to accumulate to many attendance points resulting in termination. I like the people i work with. That makes the days go by faster and makes it far more enjoyable.

Cons

It's retail.... sometimes other co-workers like to slack off forcing you to carry their weight. Some times they poor a lot of work on-top of you and they want you to stop and help every customer. You will work late some nights when you close.

Advice to Management

Try to make it more enjoyable. They hardly care about their employes desire to come to work.
