Clothing Associate (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJuly 24, 2012
Pros: was a fun place to work
Cons: not a lot of benifits
As a clothing associate at sportchek you would, make sure all the clothes are correctly hung, lined up and colour co-ordinated. Clean every inch of the store and help every customer as good as you possibly could. What I learned was that every customer wants something different and that its important to help them and not just to sell to them. Every customer – more... is a valued customer. Computer skills, how to close cash, and open cash. Specific qualities and pros about different kind of material. Benifits of different shoes, and what they can or can't do for your feet. How to stock a back room. Managment was good, fair and fun to work with. Co-workers were helpful and tried their best as well. Hardest part of the job was setting up new product tables, when a lot of the time we didn't have a lot of the product, so I had to improvise. Most enjoyable, learning all the new things about certain types of clothing and shoes. – less

Hardgoods/Footwear Sales Associate (Current Employee), Calgary, ABJune 28, 2012
Working at SportChek has been a really good learning experience for me and gave me the potential to grow into the hard worker I am today. I enjoy the challenge the job brings and everyday is different allowing you to learn new things and meet new people.

I used to work in the footwear department for the last 4 years advising and selling technical footwear. – more... While in footwear I managed the footwear day-to-day operations by delegating tasks to co-workers while being instructed by my footwear department manager. I have shown to have a strong work ethic, excellent time management and decision-making skills, strong communication skills and the ability to adapt to a changing environment.

Just a month or 2 ago I was moved into the hardgoods department of the store and now advise and sell sporting equiptment. There was a lot to learn in a short period of time but I made a nice smooth transition into the department. Since being in hardgoods I have carried over skills and work ethic that I used in footwear and have made the hardgoods department more organized. I have also learned a few things in our tech shop, like building bicycles and sharpening skates. – less

CUSTOMER SERVICE & SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONApril 3, 2012
Pros: great discounts.
Cons: boring when no customers are there to help
A typical day consisted of helping customers pick what brand,size, or type of sporting equipment would be best for them. I learned a lot about sport safety and how to protect yourself by using proper equipment. Management was very reasonable and understandable with your private life. Co-workers were great to work with and be around. The hardest part – more... of the job would be waiting for customers to come into the store on days it wasnt very busy. It could go over an hour without someone needing your assistance. The most enjoyable part was helping people make the right decision – less

Pros: discounts at any sportchek

I've been working with sportchek for four years, and Management in general has changed a lot. From the day I have worked there management has worked on getting this location to the best that it can be. I like working there because of the people, my co workers, as well as the management. It is a very relaxing and non stressful environment to work in
