  • Employee

Gender Equality

Avoided promoting women into management because unloading trucks was so rigorous.

Career Development

No staff development.

Overall Compensation for your work

Company used petty excuses to deny raises over multiple years. Abused exempt employees and overtime requirements.

Work-Life Balance

Recruited people with outdoor experience and then worked them so much that they could no longer enjoy the outdoors themselves.

Company culture

Sales driven

Suggestions for improvement

  • Every store manager on LI was over 40 years old, new District Manager came in and ALL 12 managers either got fired or quit and were replaced by managers under 30 with far less experience

What I like about the company

The benefit program was excellent

What I dislike about the company

As a Store Manager we were allowed to make decisions based on customer feedback regarding coupons to customers if they forgot their coupon. I was let go for giving a customer a coupon that the customer forgot to bring and made a huge purchase. I had just returned from having two stents put in my heart after a heart attack. Two months later they let me go for giving a coupon out. I was with them for 2 years and was an excellent sales driven Manager

Company culture

to many chefs

Attitude towards older colleagues

as I grew older with TSA the more they tried to push me out...

Suggestions for improvement

  • I'm glad they closed.... Sad for all my friends that still worked there..

What I like about the company

In the beginning Sports Authority (then SportMart) was a Great Company. employee appreciation awards. you felt like you belonged to a great company.

What I dislike about the company

When it changed to Sports Authority that is when they changed operations, removed Hunting/Fishing and then Sales Goals that where unobtainable..
