    I worked at Modell's Sporting Goods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fair pay, great hours, and easy enough to learn how to work at the store. I also got to learn more about different sports and the equipment they use since we’re always organizing them and helping customers find them.

    Cons

    I can’t think of any I had.

    I have been working at Modell's Sporting Goods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can pick schedule, some customers are nice, pay weekly, great for 1st time teens seeking jobs part time or seasonal

    Cons

    Short breaks, rude managers they abuse their title, cut hours ridiculously, takes you off entire schedule, favoritism,horrible location, managers treat you very bad and speak to you like you’re nothing !!! (Brooklyn store, won’t say which!!!)
    Uses you for holiday sales then let you go or cut hours like crazy or take you off the schedule

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful to your employees and tasks will run smoothly, stop abusing “manager”,”supervisor” title, be flexible and understandable with college students “we have bills to pay and need to study”

    I worked at Modell's Sporting Goods part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, nice people, simple job description, reasonable tasks, in a union, vacation time and benefits

    Cons

    part time status only unless you're management, holiday and weekend work, different shifts

    Advice to Management

    Value good employees more for better retention. Great starter job for those in college but slow in promoting those who deserve it. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a job as the company on a whole is great for those not looking for too much advancement.
