Avis d'employé sur Sport Chek
Sportchek Nanaimo has the chance to be such a fun and professional work place but it is blinded and thrown off course by a manager who is more focused and determined to be liked by his staff on a personal level than a professional level. The general manager is constantly taking time to shop for himself during his shift while other employees struggle with customers and spends most of his time in his office slacking off or singing while other team members organize a way to pick up his slack. This manager has been report before for verbal and emotional harassment. To anyone looking to work at Sportchek Nanaimo I strongly encourage to look at other places First

Amazing staff and assistant managers
Was constantly pressure for sales always had to be promoting something. There is a lot of preferential treatment by management. You can sit and get paid if you are friends with the manager while others work. Unfair work setting.
I’ve worked part time for sportcheck for about a year and a half now (I’m a student) and I have a really great bond with my co-workers and managers! The job itself is pretty easy, and I haven’t had any serious issues with the company. My only two comments is that my location faces some understaffing issues. They also push their employees to sell the Triangle Master Card to customers. Realistically, no customer is going to sign up for a credit card because a teenager in a retail store told them all of the benefits.
Fun and friendly work environment
Sometimes understaffed (even on busy days such as weekends)
Sportchek is like any other retail job, workers are expected to do more, and deal with more, than what they are paid. New hires are often paid more than some of the employees who had been working there for several years. They are flexible with hours, especially if you play a sport and need time off for a tournament, and you can always trade shifts with coworkers if they are willing. Management can be very uptight, depending on the day, and sometimes offer little help if your department is busy. This job can teach you great customer service skills, how to have a hard work ethic, and how to be patient with frustrating customers if you are willing to learn. You will be praised, but you won't be compensated for always going above and beyond. If you're a high school or college student looking to work a minimal amount of hours to either get a little cash or entry level work experience, then this job can be a good fit.
Great discount, flexible hours, learning opportunities
sub-par management, deal with customers
