Sportchek is a good company to work for. it typically employees high school, just out of high school and university student. Sportchek can be busy at some points in the year.

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.

Great place to work
Cashier/visual merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON9 July 2017
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
Pros

Management ruins the experience.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON5 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.

A fun place to work but has its flaws
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 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.

Fun place, management could be better
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC29 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.
Pros
Fun work environment
Cons
Management does nothing but stand around

Fun and welcoming environment with friendly associates
Part-time Cashier (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 June 2017
Working at sportchek has been a great experience, overall, a typical day at work is a busy, overwhelming day with loads of work. Management was full of friendly, caring people. Hardest part about working at sportchek has been the daily cashouts and store openings, with the responsibility of counting the tills, deposits, and safe, but on the other hand the most enjoyable part has been the opportunity to work with friendly, amazing people i can now call my friends.
Pros
lack of hours, low pays
Cons
Associate discount

Good place to work
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Kamloops, BC27 June 2017
Apart from management lacking in people skills, this is a great place to work. Sales associates are fun & hard working. Learn what it means to really provide excellent customer service! Fast paced work environment, great for building resume and getting some job experience.
Pros
great staff deals, flexible hours
Cons
management needs to work on people skills

Product Advisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 June 2017
Just like any other retail job, its very sales orientated. You will be working with high school students or people that have worked for the company for years. Amazing discount but your store management will vary and affect your experience.
Pros
Employee Discount
Cons
Lunch Breaks are very short for long shifts

Not desirable for a long term work
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB11 June 2017
The job was very strict. I enjoyed being busy and getting work done, but there was not a good employee-manager relationship and the pay was not enough for what other jobs in the area were paying.

Fun workplace where you work with great people and customers
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON5 June 2017
SportChek is a great place to work. You learn a lot about different aspects of different sports as well as how to help different kinds of customers. your coworkers become your friends very quickly and the management is great as well. They have been flexible with my hours while I have been in school which has helped me a lot. Overall, a very fun place to work.

Soft Goods Associate (Former Employee) –  Bolton, ON27 May 2017
Short shifts with high pay. Salary increased often. Discount was a huge benefit. Mostly happy co-workers. Online training should be completely redone. It was very dull, tiring and long.
