Decent job to fill free time
Footwear Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Arkansas – January 12, 2019
Academy provides an easily attainable part time position to make minimum wage or just above minimum wage. It is typically a pretty slow-paced job, and there are not often unforeseen challenges to the job. Pay raises are given once a year, with a 50 cent maximum, based on a loose evaluation scale. There is not much room to move up in the company, however, there are often opportunities to move to different positions within the store, all within the same pay range. Upper level management is quickly getting worse and putting more and more of a strict hold on the store level management, especially in hours cut, leading to a very bare, severely understaffed store becoming a common scene. An employee should always be prepared to leave their department and assume the role of a backup cashier on a daily basis, at any time of day, as very little cashiers are staffed at a time, mostly relying on the department associates to make up for the front-end being very behind.
Flexible positions, good lower level management
Strict higher level management, low pay, no room to move up
