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

    Pros

    -Spiffs and bonuses
    -Fun inventory
    -Pretty easy job when there isn't any stress

    Cons

    -Every other week our focus was on something new. If it wasn't selling insoles, it was getting email addresses, if it wasn't email addresses, it was warranties oh, and then the fun days where you were expected to: Sign everyone up for the loyalty card, get insoles, get warranties and convince them to go online and give the store a 5 rating.

    Advice to Management

    stop being so focused on all the extras

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment, friendly staff for the most part, and willing to work with school schedule.

    Cons

    Higher management plays a very large role in your path to promotion, so be on the good side of your managers. As a top sales employee for the whole east coast for consecutive months its still took me awhile to become promoted due to age restrictions and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling is key to saving on payroll, it is crucial to make sure while trying to staff in all departments, not to overstuff for no reason. Also be more contentious of employees schedules and opinions. They see what items are selling and can be crucial with proper marketing and sales strategies.
