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

Pros

I have a job to support my family. For now.
Cost plus 10% days (which brings the price down to what you would pay at Walmart but hey, we appreciate your hard work!)

Cons

where to start?
Scheduling to minimum hours=management only works 32 hours a week...nice paycut!
Part time staff, which is supposed to be 60% of the workforce, gets 10 hrs a week
Part time staff makes minumum wage with a chance at a raise once a year....for 17 cents Per Hour
Company is doing so poorly that stores that would have been on action plans in the past are top performers....gotta love the bell curve!
New Small store format? at the rate we are going, all stores will have the sales of a small store format
seasonal directives are changed daily
 4 updates to outdoors in a two week period? and no clue as to what goes where?
Work load goes up, hours available to complete mandated changes to store layout are no longer available. (minimum hours required regardless of tasking required) and dont forget corporate visitors!
CEI expectation is that 71% of the customers surveyed must be "highly satisfied" and mention names on the survey. ? 71% of the customers never see an associate except the cashier in most stores.
most comments left from customers are " couldnt find anyone on the floor,( nobody scheduled) couldnt find anyone to open fitting rooms, couldnt find what i was looking for (because it is in the backroom)

Loyalty signups expected to be at a minimum 35% conversion......if below you need to have "conversations with your underperformers", run clinics, doesnt matter if the day before you ran a 50%, hey, the cashiers are running the store from the frontend while the managers are working frieght. too much room for fraud..asset protection is looking for loyalty abuse rather than stopping that guy who just ran out the front doors with an arm full of North Face and Nike shoes

Advice to Management

listen to your employees. they are frustrated and out looking for a different job.

    Pros

    A good start to getting into a sports career. Helps gain a better understanding of sports companies. It will also test your knowledge of sports and how you can incorporate your knowledge to help the customers find everything they need.`

    Cons

    There may be times where miscommunication happens. That is probably the only mishap of the job. Sometimes management can be really repetitive on things that have already been thoroughly explained.

    Advice to Management

    Helps us grow and learn new things.
