Want to work in a military style operation? This is the job for you
Assistant manager (Former Employee), Yeovil – May 15, 2013
Pros: bonus scheme
Cons: the entire job
This company is horrendous, they treat you like muck, they dont care about you as a person one bit. All they care about is profit, profit, profit. If you want to feel worked to the bone, exausted and have absolutely no gratitude for it then work here.
No staff are ever rostered because of heads per hour but it takes about 5 hours to clean up the store – more... after a busy day because you haven't been able to maintain standards during the day. The company does not care one bit!!!
You are expected to work days at a time for stock takes sometimes 24 hours plus straight, but god forbid you ask for a break!!! – less

I absolutely hated it!! the only enjoyable part was leaving at the end of the day!!! no staff so had to work on your own with a queue to the back of the shop, staff are backstabbing blue shirts are only in it for their bonuses so in the shop i worked in you would have one staff on till and floor upstairs and one downstairs so the shop was a constant – more... mess radios did not work honestly don't do it!! you will regret it!! – less
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Bromley – May 13, 2013
Cons: poor management
It was always a hectic environment on a typical work day. It gets stressful when the management does not really give credit to people who rightfully deserve it but because you love your job, you enjoy working anyways.
sales assistant (Former Employee), basildon, Mayflower Park – May 12, 2013
Pros: hours to work after college.
Cons: poor salary...tedious job.
Worked at Sports Direct whilst at College. Yes, it was good to work after College as the store was open till 8:00pm but there wasn't anything exciting about going to work. You work on the till, you fetch trainers for very rude customers or you're thrown in the men's/Women's department have to to 'tidy' up after messy customers. The salary was poor and – more... your colleagues could be quite rude to you if you didn't have anything in common with them. Not a place I'd recommend full time. Part time was enough!! – less

Supervisor (Current Employee), Bristol – May 3, 2013
Pros: bonus schemes
Cons: long shifts, no extra benefit when salaried
Good company to work for with good job security, Sports Direct are going from strength to strength. Good bonus incentives with stock takes and uplift in sales. Long days - 10 hour shifts and no reward for working extra hours during stock take when on salary. Job training is provided but very slow at receiving this.
Retail Assistant (Current Employee), Brislington Bristol – April 30, 2013
Pros: reliable company
Cons: not enough hours
On arrival I log in and attend to duties given. This could be operating the tills , greeting the customers or generally working on the shop floor answering queries and keeping the shop floor tidy. I have learnt the general operation of the store on a day to day basis. I get on well with all colleagues, Management and co-workers. The job is relativley – more... straight foward and not too stimalative and customer contact is the most enjoyable part of the job. – less
Part time casual assistant (Current Employee), Dunfermline – April 26, 2013
Typical day includes taking cages of stock down to the basement, emptying the cages, putting the clothes into boxes, then once done, I tag and cube the clothes, hang them on a rail and move onto the next box.
sales assistant (Current Employee), Isleworth – April 22, 2013
Cons: long hours
Working at Sports Direct is a long and hard day, but what job isnt? With this company you have to give a 100% everyday because you do not know what everyday is going to be like.
I started in this company with no experience but now i am a senior member of the team and have been offered a promotion. My co workers are a strong and loving team which support – more... and respect you. Our motivation towards each other is to help and believe so that we know that the job is going to get done.
The hardest part of my job is the hours during a week i would do 45-52 hours a week, so social life has an affect, but it is all worth it ! – less
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Denton – April 14, 2013
Cons: not enough hours
At first i enjoyed working at sports direct but when we got new managers it all went down hill, they wasn't very nice to the staff and almost like bullied you. A typical day work there would of been tidying up the shop keeping things nice and tidy and serving customers on the tills when needed. Some of my co-workers was nice to get a long with but some – more... of the others wasn't they didnt look happy or approach able to talk to. – less
