Avis d'employé sur Sport Chek
Fun people, good vibes, but questionable management
The only concern is manager issues not being addressed, lack of professionalism (mostly with younger staff), and favoritism. Which nothing too serious ever happened, but its unfortunate to be ignored when complaints arise.

I worked at Sportchek for just under 3 years and it was one of my favourite jobs. If you stay on top of your schedule they’re very accommodating. Most employees are university / high school students and we never had issues getting days off for class as long as you keep up with your availability. Hours depend on work ethic, managers can really screw you if they don’t like you. It also seemed like a popularity contest (I knew people who worked at several stores across Ottawa). If the managers didn’t like you, you never got shifts. Discount is amazing, it’s what I missed the most. The job overall is easy, I worked on cash and in clothing. There’s no room for advancement unless you want to be a department manager and they rarely promote from within the company.
Managers can be mean
This company provides training with minimal guidance or oversight. That is not necessarily a bad thing. Here is what you need to know, now it’s up to you to use the information and speak with customers. There is no commission so no hard and fast sales quota. I’m sure each location has a budget set down by corporate but how that is calculated is above my pay grade, literally. Minimum wage is the norm or perhaps slightly above, maybe. With a company making 3.48 billion in revenue Canadian Tire is the parent company with Marks and Sport Chek as included components it’s sad that employees are not offered better pay. Government mandated minimum wage doesn’t mean companies can’t offer a better salary. No wonder most employees are part time rated rather than full time. Not having to offer any type of benefit puts more revenue in the pockets of everyone else up the chain of command. And on that segway there is no opportunity for vertical advancement within the company. Here is your position, thank you. It’s a little funny how managers are differentiated from mere employees by a collar on their shirt, cute eh ? The employee discount coupled with the fact that you are indoors with no real heavy lifting to do and no quotas to meet is a reason to work here for a short period of time. I can’t see making a career or for that matter a living working here. Managers for the most part are fine and easy to get along with, no reason not to. For younger people a good in between job while looking to land that dream job or career.
Discounts on products, warm, cool, dry, no heavy lifting
Poor wages, no advancement vertically, no benefits
