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

Pros

I liked getting a discount on merchandise and being able to see the latest products come out.

Cons

Corporate is constantly changing their strategy. Every few months they would launch some new program that would supposedly make Sports Authority the best. Incentive programs didn't work and were frustrating. Also there was too much focus put on customer service surveys.

Advice to Management

Focus internally instead of trying to focus externally. Happy employees are more likely to make customers happy.

    Sports Authority has strict policies, no advancement opportunity, poor pay, poor management, nonexistent raises, demands from management to sell crappy products.
