Sales Associate (Former Employee), west bend wi – June 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, IL – June 9, 2014
Pros: good management, work in sports
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

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Brighton, MI – April 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

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.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Saint Clairsville, OH – September 28, 2013
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.
For me a typical day at MC Sports was to come in and count my til and get it up and running the drawer. I would then organize the store and chat with some of the supervisors about the store. We did occasionally joke around and just talk about our lives when we weren't busy. The manager and supervisors were all very nice and light hearted. I'd say the – more... hardest part of my job was making sure inventory counting. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to interact with the customers on a daily bases and making them smile. – less
