No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Sports atmosphere
Fun co-workers
Customers are typically friendly and enjoyable to help

Cons

More concerned with profits than value
No loyalty to workers
Forced to sell useless warranty plans
Problems are deflected onto lower workers rather than creating plausible solutions

Advice to Management

Build a business focused on the company mission and values, rather than driving for more profit. Customers have the most contact with associates, if the associates are miserable because management is threatening them for "poor" sales the customer will see this and be less motivated to return.

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

    Pros

    Worked with great people for the most part. High energy work environment, and always something to do on really slow days to pass time. There are a lot of things you can push to sell in store that give you pay bonuses and the work shirts are an awesome air-dry wet-proof thin fabric.

    Cons

    Pay is not the greatest for the high pressure sales required by corporate and other employees will steal your sales without being penalized. Schedule was never up until the last minute sometimes a day after that week hasd started making planning your personal affairs very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Reprimand thieves that steal from co-workers, be sure the coming schedule is out the promised two weeks prior for good notice and more pay is always nice. :)
