Productive and fun place to work.
Firearms Manager (Current Employee), Traverse City, MIOctober 24, 2014
Pros: gives hands on with the product we sell.
Cons: stress levels tends to get high during the holidays, you hit your pay ceiling quickly.
Greet customers is non stop, yet great because always a different person and personality. I have learned how to deal with so many personalities and not to take their attitudes serious. Learned to be quick to easy the customers concerns. Part of my job is to make my managers look good to the higher up managers and to the customers. The easier I make – more... the managers job the easier my job is. Our managers are very out going and make sure they are aware of others around them. – less

I loved working for McSports. They are a great company and I loved the staff. I enjoyed being able to help customers and meet their needs. I loved sports growing up and it was fun to help others collect the equipment and appeal for the sports they were active in.

Fun yet hard working enviroment
Sales Associate (Former Employee), west bend wiJune 19, 2014
A typical day included cleaning, helping customers, facing items in the store, providing product information, completing orders, cashiering, etc. The hardest part of the job would be doing multiple things at once such as helping a customer in-store while having a customer on the phone while simultaneously pricing or stocking items. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job would be satisfying the customers. Getting a smile and a thank you from a customer makes the job fun. My managers were all friendly yet goal oriented. They made sure to give tasks and keep you busy. There was never time to just stand around and chat. – less

Overall, a satisfying job to work at as it has a good blend of do-it yourself projects and helping other workers and customers
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee), Rockford, ILJune 9, 2014
Pros: good management, work in sports
Cons: benefits
The first thing I usually do when I first arrive at work is get cashier drawer to be either a backup cashier or head cashier. Throughout the day, depending on the day of the week, I will work on truck and getting merchandise on the floor where it belongs. If there is no truck to work on, I attend to peoples' needs the best I can, and also work on getting – more... sale prices marked correctly, and working on advertisement sales. I learned how to multi-task better, especially cashiering, when I have to check people out, answer phones, and any other job possibility that might pop up. Also, I learned better to deal with more people at once. Being at a bigger retail store, there are more people and more personalities coming together, and everyone has their way of doing things and dealing with things. The hardest part of the job is probably doing the biggest advertisement set of the year before Black Friday. Everyone is running around working on getting everything set for that day. MC Sports has a good management crew. Overall, they are more than willing to help out and for the most part, they also do a good job at dealing with all the sales associates' different personalities. The most enjoyable part of the job is probably getting into a conversation with a customer about a sport, like golf, and showing him or her tips on how to get better, and seeing them smile back at you as they are happy to hear my information and tips. – less

Energetic, with friendly and caring associates
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Brighton, MIApril 27, 2014
Pros: discounts on products in store and on 3.5 training
Cons: few promotion opportunities
As a sales associate/cashier, typical day consist of greeting, being polite and helping customers. Moving new merchandise to the sales floors and re-arranging inventory to districts “planogram” to increase sales. Associates goal are to have returning customers because of the great staff at MC Sports. Being around sporting equipment I am familiar with, – more... gives me the opportunity to teach and learn from customers. With management being low, as a cashier I’ve learned the procedures they take for returns, exchanges, special orders and customer requests. All of the associates are required to know standard management procedures in case they are busy. Low management is also a down fall, due to few managers; customers have to wait minutes longer for their assistance. Thankfully the staff is outstanding, creating a enjoyable and healthy work environment. – less

Great Company
Cashier (Former Employee), Cadillac, MIApril 23, 2014
I loved working as seasonal help for this company. There is such a rush working the day after Thanksgiving. I worked here two years just as seasonal help during this time. 2006 and 2005 what a great bunch of people to work with. Not a very big turnover in management which is a bonus.

Good place to work. Smaller Chain so there is more communication between store level and corporate level. Direct contact with buyers gives them the upper hand in helping customers to find the products they are looking for.

The company is a great company to work for with that said it was hard to work with the lack of customers and other workers being too lazy to fulfill what needed to be done.
