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

Pros

Good hours and competent managers. For a sports fan, this is a great place to spend your time over the summer. Learned a lot about sporting equipment through the product training guides. Enjoyed the other staff members and my managers were engaging and supportive.

Cons

Minimum wage, high employee turnover. At times asked to sell/discuss products far above my knowledge level. Sometimes very slow during the day and hard to stay engaged with nothing to do.

Advice to Management

Consider more employee perks to improve employee turnover.

    Pros

    Flexibility, fairness. Unlike some of the other jobs I've had, I didn't have to worry about flaky management.

    Cons

    The return policy is too lax. Great for people who like to take advantage of any opportunity to use a product and then bring it back. And it's retail, so the usual retail drawbacks apply.

    Pros

    The discount is fair. Co workers are nice

    Cons

    They offer you no training, you start and they just throw you to the wolfs . Pay isnt worth the amount of work you do, point system is a good idea that was poorly executed

    Advice to Management

    Offer some training to new hires if u want to keep them
