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

Pros

Good work/ life balance. Discount. Management was mostly ok.

Cons

commission compensation, benefits, and I noticed signs of it being more of a "Who you know" to get promoted kind of company. Was in line for a promotion after a employee left (who I'll admit had been there longer than I but, not once performed better than I did.) She left for three months then, returned and they promoted her instead of me. A week after she returned.

Advice to Management

Keep your employees informed. It sucked being laid off on Christmas Eve.
