A typical day, greeting customers and helping with their needs. What I learned at Sports Authority: like all retail or stores, basically just be polite and help others. Management: management was ok, not bad but not the best either. My co-workers were great, everyone helped each other like we were a family. The hardest part of the job was trying to satisfy everyone even at its worst. The most enjoyable part working there was working the friendly encounters I had with some of my co-workers and customers.
