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

    Pros

    Incredible team members and managers. I really love how the company does not encourage pushy customer service or have personal KPIs to hit. Because of this, we were able to personalise our customer service and create the optimum, stress-free in-store environment (and have a lot of fun).

    Cons

    After 5 years in the company I have almost none! The only thing would be communication between head office, management and team members. One day we’ll be told to do one thing, and the next we’re told off for it. There’s a bit of flipping back and forth with policies, confusing both employees and customers.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Sportsgirl part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Super great company to work for, 50% off full price discount if you’re part time or full time staff. The store I’ve been at is amazing and everyone including business managers have always been really friendly

    Cons

    Not much flexibility if you’re a student, most stores have set part time contracts so there’s little room for movement. If you’re casual you won’t have many shifts at all

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Sportsgirl full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were so many pros, I made friends that will last a lifetime, being stylish was encouraged, the stock was fun and exciting, the repeat customers were legends, all the charity work Sporty G's does and all the empowering team talks. I miss it!

    Cons

    No support when the manager left, I was left running a store that I was new to and had little support and no payrise. We constantly had head office staff secret shop us and it made us feel like we were constantly being watched. We were stripped of a VM and was expected to complete the VMs job plus the managers job which was impossible with zero support. A lot of the staff have been there for years making them negative, complacent, and won't take feedback making it IMPOSSIBLE to manage them. The regional manager of VIC is an absolute honey but everyone about her was toxic.

    I worked at Sportsgirl part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well organised company. As a casual employee I found that it was very easy to pick up shifts when I wanted more.

    Cons

    Your success and growth is really in the hands of your store manager so there can be a lot of politics involved.
