Loved my co-workers.....

Apparel Sales, Cashier, Customer Service (Former Employee)
Vero Beach, FL (US)

I worked at Sports Authority full-time for less than a year

ProsWorked with great people for the most part. High energy work environment, and always something to do on really slow days to pass time. There are a lot of things you can push to sell in store that give you pay bonuses and the work shirts are an awesome air-dry wet-proof thin fabric.

ConsPay is not the greatest for the high pressure sales required by corporate and other employees will steal your sales without being penalized. Schedule was never up until the last minute sometimes a day after that week hasd started making planning your personal affairs very difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementReprimand thieves that steal from co-workers, be sure the coming schedule is out the promised two weeks prior for good notice and more pay is always nice. :)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
