I have been working at Sports Direct part-time (Less than a year)
Meet new people, can choose your own hours, 20% discounts!.
The other staff here are very friendly and understanding, helpful if I don't know something.
Managers bought us cakes after a particularly busy day!
Back to school and Christmas times are very busy and stressful and busy!
Been doing the same job/task(s) for >1 year, getting bored now, only thing making it noticeably interesting is the variations of customers. We use radios to talk and often there aren't enough and people get into a queue to call the shoes which causes irritation with some customers.
Advice to Management
Make sure all packaging is in decent condition as its often unusable and falls apart. I've had many complaints about this. Some sort of new system for calling the shoes is required, the radios are somewhat inefficient.
Good management and will recommend this place
More training and the entire team is helpful when you need suport
Great place to work at
Needs better management. Inter act with employee at all levels

Good people and good manager, however I know people from other stores weren't as lucky.
Zero hour contract - not reliable.
Sales staff do the most work for management to reap the benefits.
Commission on sales of certain products was introduced but then became more of a demand to sell a certain amount, rather than an incentive.
Feel like you dedicate yourself but don't get much recognition.
Very little possibility of progression from my perspective.
Really nice people. Absolutely love the team could not ask for a better work family.
If you don't sell magazines and bags that's not good
