Love the store, and the people but corporate ruined it for me
Customer Service Part Time and Seasonal (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – May 9, 2017
A typical work day consisted of me working with the customers and helping them find what they were looking for while also trying to also sell them on our other store products. I learned a lot about the different products and why certain brands are better and how it can benefit you to have better brand materials and I learned how to work with customers and found an effective way to sell products to the customer without ripping them off or being too pushy. The store managers overall were good, there's always that one or two store managers that ruin it for most but overall they are good. However, corporate gets in the way too much and causes chaos and makes people want to not work there. The culture is overall decent. The other employees are great, but it does get old having to deal with certain customers and those one or two managers who are just too much and how corporate always has to have their fingers on everything. The hardest part of the job is to please everyone. It is almost impossible to please the customers, store managers and corporate. The most enjoyable part of the job were the other employees and the great discounts on all of the great products Academy Sports and Outdoors have to offer.
