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

Pros

Big company- systems and training in place, strong communication between corporate and retail
Fun team- made going in to work a pleasant experience
Schedule- I was able to manage working full time and ski 5 days a week

Cons

Retail pay
Changes in store management- high turnover

Advice to Management

Motivate your employees- do more outside of work as a team. offer more serious incentives for selling ECPs.

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

    Pros

    Great Manager, easy workload, relaxed atmosphere, flexible schedule, employee discount.
    I really enjoyed working here, if I hadn't been moving from the area I'd still be there.

    Cons

    pay & I can say I wouldn't want to work there as part of the management team...for the pay they receive it isn't worth the pressure placed on them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying last seasons stuff in bulk at a discount to stock the store next year and give your associates updated merchandise to sell...If you do that you will blow the competition (who's name glassdoor won't allow me to type.) out of the water! (Oh and for the love of all that is holy, get rid of the Soybu merchandise that is horrific and usually results in snickers and giggles rather than sales.)

    I have been working at Sports Authority part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great for part time job to start out with. Very easy work and awesome place to meet fun people. 50% discount is applied twice a year which is great to buy lots of things during those times.

    Cons

    inconsistent hours and also commission is not all that great. It could be better. Management seems to not have to do much while everyone else does most of the work.
