Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Sweetwater, FL – May 25, 2017
Walked into the store and clocked in, checked in with the manager and see what register they wanted to place me in and attended customers when they were ready to check out as well as helping and customers on the phone. The management in the current place was poor and unorganized. Always changing the schedule without giving notice to anyone. the best part of the job was be exposed to different types of customers, most were tourists and spoke several languages.
• Identified problems customers had (over the phone and in person) and provided them with effective solutions. • Utilized strong multi-tasking skills to balance assisting customers and answering a high call volume. • Provided outstanding customer service which lead to appraisals. • Amplified customer satisfaction by displaying friendliness and helpfulness to customers.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – May 25, 2017
Paid too little. Customers were awful to staff during bankruptcy. Working long hours was hard on feet. The general managers were awesome, but the district manager told us not to worry about our jobs and then days later he tells us we're going bankrupt.
Sales associate (Former Employee) – Westlake, CA – May 24, 2017
due to problems that arose higher up in the company the chain of stores has been shut down. while working there I experienced the normal pros and cons of working in a retail environment. However I was paid less than my male coworker and when asked why this was my supervisor simply shrugged his shoulders and told me it wasn't his problem. decent company before it went down but could do better when hiring their leaders.
A typical work day consisted of greeting customers as they walked in, helping to find products throughout the store, stock merchandise on the sales floor, and to ring up the customers purchases. The management was different from any type of management staff that I have previously worked for because they were very close knit and very involved with their employees. The hardest part of the job was to maintain a clean work environment when there were not enough employees on the sales floor. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help customers gain knowledge about things they had no previous knowledge about.
Nike Brand Coordinator (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – May 16, 2017
This company is no longer open. as of 2015. From 2007 - 2010, I worked as a Nike Brand Coordinator. I was my own leader and rarely had to ask for approval. The most enjoyable part of that job was seeing the costumers look impressed on how well the department looked.
Sales, Stock Associate (Former Employee) – City of Sunrise, FL – May 16, 2017
While working at Sports Authority I learned a lot about the products we sell and how the products could benefit each and every customer in different ways. I also learned how to communicate well with customers, helping them get what they're looking for and suggest better products that would meet their needs.
Fast paced, fun environment, Work life balance was great
Retail Associate/Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 15, 2017
I worked at Sport's Authority for a short time. It was great hours, work life balance, and the managers were great. If you were not liked for lack of work ethic, you were singled out. Hard work, you will get along fine there.
