I have been working at Sports Authority part-time (More than a year)

Pros

At the sports authority they always encourage us to succeed and give our best. When we do well it is rewarded. The communication is fantastic and we have really opened up more and more ways to talk to eachother. Bayshore Sports Authority is awesome.

Cons

We're in a mall so we have to comply with mall hours. We also have crazy hours on days like black friday. no fun!

    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    So many talented people; unfortunately, they are leaving daily.

    Cons

    It is clear to all in the trenches that the execs are focused on getting the company sold. They have no interest in retention or making sure people are happy, as they don't plan on being around for the fallout, and don't care to have relationships with those they may have to terminate to save costs. Actual words from the head of our department were that if you aren't happy in your job you need ot leave. However, this is not the stated goal - the stated goal from HR/Execs is to reduce turnover and make SA a better place to work. So, the middle managers who are tasked with this objective are perpetually confused by the message they receive.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give lip-service to the engagement survey, then in departmental meetings tell everyone that if they are unhappy they should leave. That demonstrates absolutely zero initiative toward retention. It is a "don't let the door hit you in the a$$ on the way out" mentality, and unfortunately at this point it is the good people who are leaving. The ones who are staying are those who feel trapped with no options.
