    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Decathlon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Great Product Line -A fantastic Business Model -A very compelling recruitment pitch

    Cons

    -Very young Management with not a lot of experience. -40 hour week is realistically more like 60 with no overtime. This is expected as it has a very European approach to employee expectations. -training is in different cities all you are expected to stay in less then professional acceptable accommodations with shared rooms. -their is a lack of communication within management and it’s ability to manage... employees. -they don’t have a defined training program and employees are just thrown into the floor. -the pay structure is very low competitively -they tell you that you will be an Ambassador in your community for your sport. Once you are hired you realize quickly that is something that is to be done on your own time as your job is to do retail only. They use a lot of manipulative language to make you believe otherwise.
