    Positive Outlook

    I worked at SportsDirect part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very flexible working opportunities, we were all able to work within our availability which was perfect whilst studying at university. Good career opportunities if you are offered. I was given multiple pay rises, given the opportunity to do 2 modern apprenticeships for free and learned loads of new skills. Although it gets a bad press, I learned so much here especially how to deal with difficult customers (internal and external). Also we were able to travel to different stores for various reasons which I always found interesting.

    Cons

    Favouritism was common which is good if close with the management but not good for others. Although good career opportunities if offered, very few permanent positions available and I know lots of people who were there for years who wanted permanent positions but they weren't able to offer them.

    I worked at SportsDirect part-time

    Pros

    0 hour contract works well in your favour if you’re a student as the job can be left open for you when returning home over the holidays.

    Cons

    Negative reviews in the press and no refund policy means you often have to deal with a lot of customer complaints
