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

Pros

There are some terrific people there.

Cons

Sports Authority is an absolute hellhole, They treat people like dirt and then appear surprised at their ridiculously high staff turnover

Advice to Management

At least pretend that you want to do more than just sell the business.

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Promotion potential, great co-workers, decent pay

    Cons

    Corporate does not know what it is like to work in the field and payroll cuts like crazy in 2013

    Advice to Management

    Use engagement survey to the company's benefit and listen to what the employees in the field are telling you. In order to provide great customer service, you need to staff the stores (PAYROLL). Bring back the cost +10% discount for managers. What other benefit do they really have over regular associates?

    I worked at Sports Authority part-time

    Pros

    I always got the amount of hours that i wanted, even when they began cutting hours severely in Mid December. If you work hard and do your job, you'll get the hours you need. Pretty good discount especially with 3-point-5. Great coworkers. My manager was understanding of my christmas break needs.

    Cons

    If you have a bad day/week in getting loyalty sign ups (as a cashier) they wont give you any hours the next week.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding of low loyalty percentages, not everyone wants one, especially when you have to spend at least $100 to get a reward at the end of the quarter. If you want loyalty numbers to go up, set up a rewards system for the person with the best numbers.
