I worked at Sports Authority part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good perks for working there and a fun environment in dealing with sporting goods. Great job for the summer and extra cash. Working the holidays are a little stressful but keep you busy.

Cons

Occasionally disorganized as far as promotions and sale items are concerned. Some of the managers seem as though they were just hired from a knowledge standpoint

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

    Pros

    Worked with and met some great people at the store level but that doesnt translate into a good company what so ever. When a company goes through 3 CEOs in 2 years they cant expect anyone to have much faith in them.

    Cons

    Company is going out of business so there is no point to get involved with any sort of management. I worked at a store near the corporate offices and met a lot of the high ups there. After a few failed buy outs because of its competitors it became clear that no company would ever get involved with TSA as long as they have the stadium and a relatively unskilled upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Starting pay for managers is around 12.30 but you are expected to work ridiculous hours, made to take PDOs when stores are over hours, and expected to work off the clock.

    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Benefits were good
    Product sells itself

    Cons

    Stringent commission goals that cause upper management to behave like high schoolers and make you not want to work
    Benefits only if you are full time
    Full timers don't work more than 35 hours unless you are management
    Low Pay

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with a little respect, they are people too, not just a tool to help you get more coverage plans and insoles.
