    I worked at Olympia Sports part-time

    Pros

    It's a great place to work while you're going to college. There are also a lot of discount opportunities for staff. I also received a lot of hours.

    Cons

    The store was often empty at times and it eventually closed.

    Advice to Management

    None.


  4. "Olympia Sports job review"

    Former Employee - Keyholder

    I worked at Olympia Sports part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great for young high school and college students looking for experience in sales.

    Cons

    - Low pay and not a lot of hours available for part-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    This company is very behind technology wise. They are still without a website which puts more pressure on stores to make sales. I believe this company would do better with quicker faster ways to help out customers.

    Pros

    Great management experience, and great co-workers.

    Cons

    This company will not invest in cameras, or electronic sensors, and will blame employees.
    Low pay, and many employees just do not work to their full potential, probably because of our low NH minimum wage...

    I have been working at Olympia Sports full-time

    Pros

    The employee discount is really good

    Cons

    - no work/life balance
    - horrible pay
    - horrible store manager
    - favoritism
    - does not follow employee handbook
    - no real HR dept. HR is basically the DSM
    - really expensive health insurance, dental and vision
    - basically no breaks
    - does not follow labor laws

    Advice to Management

    DSM needs to stop playing favorites. They promoted someone into store manager who has no HR or operations experience. The store manager lies, sets up employees to fail, and is petty
