    I have been working at Sports Authority part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment
    Interaction with customers
    Selling sports equipment

    Cons

    Depends on your management- (could be fun with good managers, but a drag if you have bad managers.)
    Long hours- (depending on the amount of employees the store has)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough employees to be able to cover the store it's hard as a sr sales associate to keep a certain dollar per hour while doing other peoples jobs like cashier, merch and cleaning crew.

    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The promotions were available if you worked hard and could prove yourself.

    Cons

    It was a very tense culture and micro managed like no other. You have to have thick skin to make it thru the 3-4 meetings per day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try so hard to squash your managereservation spirit.

    I worked at Sports Authority part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Sports Authority is definitely very laid back. As a cashier, I feel like I barely did much but still got paid. If hired for footwear however, you do have to reach certain numbers of sales.

    Cons

    Unbelievable non-stimulating environment, not much to do to keep yourself busy.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Vail, CO (US)

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time

    Pros

    Better pay then working for Vail resorts retail. Free merchant ski pass for full time employees. Decent health benefits. In store discount great

    Cons

    No real training or development of upper management. District manager only seemed to choose his buddies for store managers. They were pretty unprofessional and incompetent. Especially the current store manager. He has no idea what he's doing so he frantically paces around the store harassing the staff with his extreme micro management. The issue with that is he's incapable of identifying things that need to be done so isn't able to actually assign tasks. Just scolds people for not working and alienates the staff.
