Avis d'employé sur Sport Chek
A great place to work
A quarter of my life was spent with this company. I worked in the greater Toronto area for 8.5 years. Once I moved for family reasons to a location 2 hours away, I noticed area managers didn't hold the same business family ethics there were in the GTA. For example, in the gta they focused on promotions from within the same store, transfers to other stores for advancement, lateral moves for best fit etc.. The district I transferred to hired me to cover a leave, then told me I would be given a position when this person returned, then reneged on this and offered me a demotion, all while hiring managers who divided and berated the current staff, and basically managed by bullying. Never once after leaving the gta Sport Cheks did I feel this company actually cared for its employees.

Very little respect is paid to employees, Employees are expected to learn a lot of material and standards for such a small wage.
Manager never praised workers. just spoke when he had a different opinion. was not a fun place to work at all for department managers. Never had a chance to come up for air always head down in paperwork.and constantly training. you would just get someone trained and then they would quit and then that keeps repeating itself. Head office should maybe look at how long employees last there to know what kind of atmosphere it holds for employees to quit after such little time. I didn't appreciate having to wait at front of store to get checked by management when i had already clocked out and waiting around on my OWN TIME was ridiculous especially when i had another job to go to afterwards.>>
sticking around on your own time to be security checked before leaving.
Very slow paced work environment, found myself working four and a half hours alot because they do not have to give you a paid lunch and will only pay you for four and a half hours to prevent you from receiving a full five hour pay. During the interview I was told about "1000 dollar store credit" that I could spend by the end of the year but when I was about to do so I learned that it was 10% off with a maximum limit of 1000 dollars. So basically you lose the employee discount once you receive 1000 dollars off of everything you spent so in its essence your only receiving a gas station coffee deal to buy 9 get 1 for free.
10 percent off
Slow. Lots of standing around
