Footwear Associate (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 3 May 2013
Typical days at work is smiling and helping customers meet their needs, which isn't hard for me at all. Footwear sales is easy as 1-2-3 seeing that i love shoes. management was ok, didn't see them too much but i had a great supervisor on staff.
Clothing Department Sales/Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Pitt Meadows, BC – 27 July 2017
A typical day at work would include helping customers, creating plans for my employees and most importantly, creating a positive atmosphere to work in. I learned that all you must be aware and respect those differences. The management team consists of department sales managers, assistant managers, store managers and district managers. The workplace culture is maybe what the company struggles with most because of the large amount of employee turnover and the large corporation restrictions with payroll and scheduling hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people who are like minded and interested in the same activities as everyone else.

Everyone was good to work with, they were all down to earth to people's. Liked the department I was in, which was sports, cause of my well knowledge of the sports equipment and etcs. Overall No complaints.

Sport check is a great company to work for. They're very flexiable and it's. Great company for so one who's balancing work and family or school. The managment is great and they promote within the company. They offer extensive training and make sure there staff is knowledgeable in the products they sell. They offer a great employee discount as well
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 5 July 2017
For a student the pay is great. The job started out fun and I found myself in a great environment. However as time went on the store was less and less enjoyable to work at. Co workers were great all staff loved eachother besides management. Management picks favourites and gives them all the hours and slack. Anyone that isnt picked as a favourite will get terrible hours and will be constantly in trouble for doing nothing wrong. I would recommend for a seasonal job only however hours are VERY inconsistent. Anyone else I would recommend working elsewhere.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 June 2017
I've been working for Sportchek for two years now and I've worked at multiple locations. Every location has been a great place to work, because the staff are incredibly nice and knowledgeable. The draw backs are the pay as well as management. Management just doesn't seem to care about staff.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 29 June 2017
Fun place to work if you are young, pay was worth it. If you are a good worker they will give you the hours you ask for. Flagship store with a lot of standards to maintain, so don't recommend if you plan on doing nothing as there is always something to do. Management could be better, they mostly do nothing but stand there and tell the full timers to make sure you are doing something. Discount is great, not for launch items though.
