I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Atmosphere is great. The employee discount is amazing.

Cons

Customers can scream and spit at you and the company will always take their side. Store Management is not always on the same page and some managers shouldn't be "managers" they lack the skill set to be an effective leader. Advancement is almost nonexistent.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees. Retail is not easy and finding great employees is hard. Find ways to motivate your employees. Define your return policy. There have been too many occasions when we follow the return policy but a customer gets upset and upper management takes back a non-returnable item. It makes the store level employees look like idiots.

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

    Pros

    Great service atmosphere for customers and employees, great discount and a decent balance between work and home, especially considering its retail! Managers are supportive and helpful and seem to always be vested in their employees success.

    Cons

    Pleasing customers, having the right product, maintaining the store and going through corporate visits!

    Advice to Management

    As a whole, I think the managers do a good job running the store while also trying to keep both customers and employees happy. And that can be very challenging in a retail environment. I'd say some advice to corporate is to get a more updated computer system and a better online warehouse!
