I loved working at Champs Sports, it was inviting and easy to learn how to do my job. They had videos and tests I would take in order to be doing the best job I could do. Videos on assisting customers all the way to tests on how to arrange the store.

Good place to work at times it can get busy but your team always have your back. The best times i like being there is around Christmas and income tax time because that’s when the store just gets crazy it’s fun being in an very busy environment
The champs in Westland mall was a horrible job. The managers think they have more power and treat the employees low. All the employees were always complaining about the main manager and how they were being treated. When you first get the job they’ll treat you so good just to get you fooled give it some time before there rolling there eyes at you .there was occasions where the manager would scream at the employees in front of costumers but not just that at the costumers as well an embarrassment. If was not their way it wasnt any way. Super tough on you to make sure you were doing everything perfect , couldn’t make a simple mistake and if you did it was Like the world was going to come to an end. They wouldn’t even let you breathe they could do whatever they want but don’t you dare even crack a joke . Just treated the employees or their little friends good but everyone else was treated very badly . Everyone talks about quitting and how they hate the job . Super dramatic job too always gossiping about one another . They’ll also use you make you feel good like they like you to get favors and get you to work hours they don’t want to work and then go back to looking at you and talking to you w nasty attitude.

Champs was very enjoyable for me. I would clock in and go straight out to the floor to assist customers. Retrieving shoes and selling store apparel was my main position. My favorite part was making kids happy when they found the shoes they were looking for in their size.

I would recommend this job for kids in highschool or looking for a part time job for an extra couple 100 a month. I would never invest any time or enevergy into moving up. Even to managers. you have a better chance to make more money almost anywhere.
Free shoes, discount shoes.
No lunches. 13-14 hour shifts 60+ hours a week mandatory.
I enjoyed my time a champs sports it was a great experience and anyone who loves shoes should work there because its a great place to work.

Working a champs was a great place because they showed me how to work at a very fast pace and get as much sells as I could and it helped me sell much more and I also enjoyed the environment and my fellow co workers who made the job two times more fun.

Before the new store manager came in, the team I was working with had a blast. We had fun at work and were still able to to make our daily sales goals for the store and individually. After the new manager came, the whole crew quit eventually and all of the regular customers started buying from the other locations.
Champs was a really great place to work. it allows employees who enjoy talking to people to do just that, it allows the salesmen to really connect with each and every one of their customers, in doing that producing loyal customers.
