    I worked at Sports Direct full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lower level HQ and store level people are great coworkers and care about each other

    Cons

    This is a prime example of a company getting in their own way and destroying business from the inside out. Sports Direct has destroyed both the Bob’s and EMS brands that they own. Leaders from the UK Sports Direct Division won’t even talk to lower level HQ people or people from stores so they have no idea what’s going on in the stores. Poor decision making across the board in upper management at HQ, nobody cares to hear what their direct reports or people from the stores have to say. They don’t care about anybody but themselves-multiple store level people have left and they don’t care to retain them and call them “traitors.” Only lower level HQ people and District Managers care about the people in stores. They put business above the good of their employees. There have been no raises for over ten years and they are not willing to pay staff in big cities better wages to afford to live-most store employees have multiple jobs or live on campgrounds. The heads of departments think people in their stores and the people that work for them are dumb and will not let anyone do their jobs, there is constant micro-management. They have no respect for anyone and think they are better than everyone who works under them.
