SC 389 is a fun sports environment to be involved in with regards to the product you are selling and being trained in, as well as the customers you are greeting. The fellow workers are usually younger and there is a high school drama and gossip environment involved.
The work wasn't the problem, the work was actually very fun. I used to pick up all the shifts I can just because I enjoyed the experience. The troubling part was dealing with a bunch of unprofessional unfair managers who power trip on you all day just to feel better about their miserable lives. They favour certain people over others. It's hard to make them feel smart and important because most of them are actually stupid and insignificant. Say goodbye to your hours if you accidentally rub off one of them the wrong way. The general manager was also racist and treated people of colour as secondary employees. You gotta act as a "model minority" if you are a minority employee or else you're not getting any hours. Even if you put in the most work you're still considered secondary. Overall the treatment from most managers was horrific, unfair and unprofessional. Again it's a fun place to work with great discounts, but for your health and sanity, don't work here.

working at sport check is great, but unfortunately the pay is not what i expected and the hours are not given for full time. it is a great job for part time workers and for students that are doing school and need flexible work hours.
The management and other employees were great to work with and made the job enjoyable. I would talk to customers and clean/ stock the store when not with customers. It could be stressful when busy as with any customer service job but we had great teamwork to relieve the stress.

The staff and management are very inclusive and friendly. They consider the needs of the team and ensure that whilst employees do their job, they still feel at ease working there. Sometimes employees are expected to be fast paced and to work under pressure, but it is never overwhelming or something one cannot handle.
The department managers are very kind and understanding, but the head manager does not keep things organized, half the time people had no idea what was going on, and when I was hired it took them a month to get back to me. The people there are very nice and easy to work with, but it is disorganized.
Plenty of education goes into getting the job (i.e. training with sports equipment and products) which is highly transferable to other places of work, fun people to work with but management can be touch-and-go based on location
Incredible at-cost discount on all products
Can be mundane if quiet location
The days can either be fast or slow it really depends. You do learn a lot about safety and sports equipment and clothing and even supplements, which I found pretty interesting. The only bad thing I can say is that management was not pleasant at all.
When I first started working there, it was great! The staff were knowledgeable and friendly and you tried to help each other out as much as you can. Now, it's stressful, staff don't get properly trained anymore, management for the most part doesn't seem to care (few exceptions there), people aren't as friendly, management pushes the staff and tends to burn them out faster than before.
I have never worked somewhere so horrible. The safety was a HUGE issue. I had improper training which lead to me getting hurt and my work not even filling out WCB. We were told it's "fine" to stand on the top step of a ladder. Schedule was none exsistant. Management was insanely bad. I got told I was hired in October and then a month later after hearing nothing I contacted them to find out they forgot about me .. worked for 2 months and hated every second
