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.

Was good and went downhill
Full time associate/cashier/stock handler (Former Employee), Belleville, ONApril 17, 2013
Pros: great pay, awesome co workers.
Cons: upper management lacks initiative and hinders growth
Started in 2006 and absolutely loved the job. Kept part time employment until 2012 and after 6years was let go with no reason, no witness, and nothing to sign. Unfortunately company values have changed quite a bit and has made the atmosphere intolerable. Interaction with peers is limited and zoning has taken priority over customer service. It's unfortunate, – more... used to be a fabulous place to work. – less

Stock 'N Serve
Sales Associate (Former Employee), North Bay, ONMarch 5, 2013
Most of work at SportChek was stocking product, assisting customers, and cleaning the store. That about sums it up. My favourite part was working in the footwear department. It always almost always busy, and if they hadn't scrapped commission before I was hired I would have made a good few dollars back there. Part-time at minimum wage was what it was – more... but employees get a decent discount on product. I liked that they would train their employees on the new products at least twice a year. Also, it is easy to make friends with co-workers. – less

Has potential
Clothing Associate (Current Employee), Surrey, BCFebruary 21, 2013
After working at a video store for a while, the switch to clothing retail was new. At first I really enjoyed working at Sport Chek there was a great balance between helping customers, completing tasks, and socializing with employees. In the past 3 months working there has really gone down hill, suddenly my boss hates any kind of social interacation – more... between employees where I've litterally been yelled at from across the store to stop talking when I had been having a 30second conversation. Since then my hours have been cut from 10-15hrs a week to 4hrs a week. I'm not sure if this is a reflection of the company or just this specific manager but it has ruined my opinon of working there. – less

Soft Goods Associate (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONFebruary 1, 2013
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: not enough hours.
I got the oppurtunity to work at SportChek as part of my school coop program. It was a great way for me to meet new people and gain some independence. I learned how to deal with many customers at the same time. I was incharge of 3 departments women's, men's and juniors clothing. I was able to balance every department and remeber every item in each area. – more... The hardest part and also the part I enjoyed the most was helping a customer to find a product that best suits their need. I tried to understand them in a very short amount of time. To help them pick out what was best for them. I enjoyed that alot. I learned alot and I had alot of responsibilities which made me a hard worker. I love working with others and enjoy retail. I'm a people person and I love to try new oppurinities. – less

Very easy going but educational environment. Fun and challenging
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee), Surrey, BCJanuary 21, 2013
Pros: very easy going place to work
I was a student with almost no experience and Sportchek was great for me. I did many different jobs and all were fun and rewarding. I learned a lot about retail and what it is like to work in a fast paced environment. The management was great and all of the people that worked there were awesome. It was sometimes hard learning to do a new job but in – more... time everything became easy to do. I enjoyed working with a group of people and team projects were always the best. It was a great experience. – less
