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

Pros

making friends with other staff and becoming a little family helping enthusiasm and motivation around the store

Cons

lots of tasks to do in little amount of time! can be challenging sometimes

Advice to Management

breaking down large tasks to prevent demotivation and discouragement of enthusiasm in the store which can reflect badly onto our customers giving them an unpleasant shopping experience

    Pros

    -Team worked very well together

    - No parking arrangements for the store I was in so I spent quite a bit to park for work.

    Advice to Management

    - Subsidise or arrange parking
