    Stop being cheap. Spend the time and money on hours and pay. Make the environment a fun place to work instead of asking about goals, as a welcome message.

    Pros

    Very easy job, 40% off discount, very flexible with hours, management was very understanding.

    Cons

    Store closed without notice, they left most of the employees without any jobs, lied about the last day the store was open as a “training day”.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your employees like their people too and not as objects because we were lied to, thrown away without jobs, and we were not even relocated. So please have a heart and at least tell the truth to your employees about a store closing it’s future. Thank you.

      Pros

      40% discount. Get to talk sports. Friendly environment.

      Cons

      Lack of hours given out, thus limits the employee presence in the stores. Corporate treats some stores alot different than other stores, basically playing favorite. Care more about numbers than actual sales. Never any praise for accomplishments, but always criticism for the smallest of things. Makes it very discouraging and stressful to work there if you actually care about your job, and not looking at it as just a job....

      Advice to Management

      The sooner you realize that not every employee is as disposable as the other, the sooner you might have consistency. Pay your employees what theyre worth, and get on top of the competition as far as product in the stores and on site, by beating them to the punch.

      Pros

      Discount on apparel Maybe one Jazz game a year, if you’re lucky.

      Cons

      Where to start. Nepotism was rampant, which led to poor management in every single department at the corporate office. The environment was incredibly sexist/misogynistic, and felt more like going to work at a Mormon frat house. There was more time spent goofing off or in completely pointless (often unrelated to work at all!) meetings, so EVERY department would fall behind on their goals or deadlines. Every department...

      Advice to Management

      Let’s hope that when Fanzz was sold, they cleaned house. Specifically I hope they cleaned house with the worst departments and department heads. Sometimes your brother or friend from the ward really isn’t the best choice for the job - hope they learned that lesson! Good luck, new owners.
