    I worked at Sport Chek part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Adequate training for all staff
    - Moderate opportunity to advance within your location
    - Working with technical products
    - Very flexible scheduling
    - Opportunity to be active within jumpstart fundraising efforts and promotion.
    - Fabulous discount and access to pro deals.

    Cons

    - Cons completely depend upon the management at your location.
    - Declining sales and traffic at brick and mortar atmosphere departments.
    - Acquisition by canadian tire has introduced mastercard sales to the job description of associates.
    - Third party employees whom walk the store to sell mastercards often times use predatory sales tactics and lie to customers. This can cause issues when simply saying hello or looking to help a customer, as they immediately believe you only want to sell them a mastercard.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Sport Chek part-time

    Pros

    employee benefits and some cool staff

    Cons

    hours have been cut, upper management continues to find ways to save despite having limited people on the floor and failing to provide product that would actually sell and make the store budget

    Advice to Management

    Find a faster and more efficient way to put new product on the floor to meet budget needs. Cannot sell clearance product and expect to make budget.
