Pros

Cost plus 10 days. Employee discounts.

Cons

They expect a lot out of you for such low amount of compensation. No commission on sales. Spiffs are pretty low amount. You will probably make max $50 a month for spiffs which includes you trying your butts off to make that much.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    This job gave me the experience of working in a high volume retail store. You learn how to deal with customers and daily tasks in the retail world. Steady raises if you work hard and make sales.

    Cons

    You're sales are tracked weekly and compared with all competing employees in your department.

    Advice to Management

    Work with new hires individually, teaching them the necessary techniques of selling. Don't throw them in the water and expect them to post great numbers on the weekly reports.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sports Authority as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They worked around my school schedule. Most of my coworkers were reliable ad worked their fair share. Hard work was somewhat rewarded.

    Cons

    They treated me like I was a screw-up, and as though I and my coworkers were going to fail. They promised hours, and pay, that we never received. They weren't very understanding.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the condescension, and stick with your promises. If you hire me, respect me. If you offer a job, provide it.
