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

Pros

Employee Discount
The regular employees are pretty cool

Cons

Little to no training
Consistent hours
Terrible managers

All they care about is AOS and the Sports Authority cards. Even if you get alot of sales its seldom you will get credit for it. There's never enough employees in the store so you're always doing more what you were assigned to pick up the slack. They hire a bunch of people so everyone gets little hours.

Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Great cowokers some are very nice, AMAZING discount, management is for the most part nice.

    Cons

    Some workers are lazy and that cause you to do double the work. limited amount of hours available, they tell you that by selling ECP's and AOS' you will earn more hours however that wasn't true. Can employ more staff closing more than 75% of the store in one hour is impossible especially for one employee while the rest don't anything.

    Advice to Management

    thank your employees when ever you have the chance, and pay attention to those employees who constantly keep getting compliments from customers and always meet sale,ecp, and aos goals.
