Decent retail position with the usual boons and burdens.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – November 7, 2018
I was only employed with Academy for the holiday season, but as far as retail stores go, it's not the worst thing ever.
The managers are understanding of one's needs and can usually accommodate if you need to work a shorter shift or take a day off.
It's the typical retail environment, so tedious workdays and difficult customers are going to be an issue on occasion. There's also times where there aren't enough work hours to provide for a regular schedule, so you might find days where you're working shorter shifts.
Still, you're probably better off than at a Wal-Mart.
Managers are flexible, employees work together, hour-long lunch breaks.
Stressful at times, occasional inconsistent schedules.
