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

Pros

There are none... Dont work there!!

Cons

Managers have all worked there forever over 15 years so unless someone dies you are never moving up, they are constantly cutting hours and making their full time employees take unwanted pdo hours to get them up to 32 hours!

Advice to Management

You need people actually on your sales floor working in order to make $$

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good discounts
    Good pay at store manager level

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance
    Frequent corporate visits
    Constant resets for no purpose
    Culture of fear to "motivate" the stores

    Advice to Management

    Trim some of the fat at Regional level. The East regional team motivated by threatening jobs constantly. Not a good environment to work in.

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

    Pros

    Flexible with scheduling, if I couldn't work they would reschedule me.

    Cons

    I was hired as a seasonal employee, but at the same time as hiring me, they hired 10 other ones. They gave us hours but as quick as they gave them they took them away.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less people, give them more hours
