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

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

If the managers are in a good mood then your day will be good. The training is above average for retail so you feel comfortable talking to customers about each product. Co-workers are great and a joy to work with.

Sales Representative (Former Employee), Oakville, OntarioAugust 21, 2012
Pros: great hours.
Cons: not as many hours as i would have liked.
I was a sales representative in the clothing and foot ware section. I really enjoyed the staff and meeting new people every day. My manager was very understanding and flexible with hours and availability. I learnt the different typed of customers I could potentially have, as some were extremely nice and polite and others would be hard to talk to.

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
