fun workplace and easy/hard work
Casual Sales Assistant (Former Employee), ukNovember 17, 2014
typical day at sports direct was easy going if you knew what you were doing, which of course i did.
The work more you put in, the more hours you got each week and this increased highly for me. I enjoyed working at Sports Direct because it has increased my motivation, confidence, personality and confidence speaking to different type of customers, i liked – more... working with the staff as they were all friendly and we were like one big family.
The hardest part of my job was the end of the day, doing re-sale, returns on the till, 990's, tidying of the shop, getting delivery for the morning ready, but overall it was a good job to work at and gives you a lot of experience too! – less

Sports Direct Retail Assistant (Former Employee), Sheffield, ENGNovember 16, 2014
I enjoy being in group situations and I can take lead as well as following. I have great concern for detail and this is displayed within my current position as I have to create displays which would appeal to the customers eye. I like to plan and be accurate in all aspects of my work. I have the maturity and ability to make decisions, being neither cautious – more... nor hesitant, hasty or impulsive.
Duties: Serving customers with stock such as trainers and clothing, greeting customers, serving on tills, cash handling, processing and replenishing stock. – less

fun place to work if you get on well with the other staff
full-time sales assistant (Current Employee), EdinburghNovember 15, 2014
Pros: cast staff are fun, meet lots of people
Cons: long hours, rubbish pay for what you have to put up with from management and customers, fulltime staff dont get paid for overtime, the company will always try to find something so they dont have to pay bonuses
Heavy pressure on staff to push sales and maintain the shop.
Kpi targets are very strictly a must pass. if you are in management position you have an easy day cause they barley do anythin at all and rely on there full time and cast staff to keep there own noses clean amd run the store.

Hard and very stressful.
Shop assistant and cashier (Former Employee), Skegness, ENGNovember 10, 2014
Pros: no lunch breaks over 5 hours and 45 minutes
Cons: not very many
Sports Direct was not a job I can honestly say I like because it was a 0 hour contract so hours was very poor and the management wasn't very good either. I add no training from the manger and add to pretty much learn on my own unless I was on the same shift as on of my friends, and the pressure that came with it for so little hours was really bad. But – more... I did turn up to all my shifts and learned a lot about myself in this roll that I am a quick learn and trust worthy – less

Pros: 15% discount
Cons: rota is only done 2 week sin advance
a typical Day at Sports direct would include reading the team brief before starting your shift. Then you will be allocated to a till and whilst on the till ensure the shop floor is tidy for customers.

Good for personal development
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), London, ENGNovember 4, 2014
Pros: bonuses every 3 months
Cons: 0 hour contract so you had to be very competitive
Learned how to work under pressure as I would typically be dealing with 8 customers at one time as well as a manager who expected too much too soon from every sales assistant. That developed me into being a good team player as I helped my new colleagues adjust into their roles much faster and with the mindset of what to expect in different situations – more... from both the customers, as well as management. This lead to a good working environment. – less

Head Cashier (Current Employee), walworth road londonNovember 1, 2014
A typical day at work for me is very busy doing lots of jobs,there somtimes feels like there is not enough hours in the day.Since working in the company i have learned how to deal with different people,some can be very angry at times due to not liking company policies regarding money refunds e.t.c, so i have learned over the last two years how to not – more... take it personally and feel self satisfaction when i deal and resolve there problem for them.I am head cashier responsable for running a small team of 4-8 staff members,my manager breifs me daily on what targets we have for that day/week and my job is to set out and delegate tasks to the team and make sure im ontop of it making sure targets and K.P.I sales are being made.I get awarded M.V.P (most valuable player) daily.The hardest part of the job for me personally is when people have bought a product and return it in the exact condition it was bought,and i am not allowed to give there money back,only a store credit note, i have 1 e.g that was very hard for me..a young child (about 11yrs old) bought a football with £20 his mum gave him to get a ball and then some milk and bread from the shop next door.He returned less than 5mins later crying,he bought a ball for £12 instead of the cheeper ball at £4,he said his mum was very angry at him and he asked for the money back (the ball hadnt been used__it was still inside the wrapper),.There was no money given back to him.
The most enjoyable part of my job is everyday is different! I enjoy helping my customers and feel great satisfaction when i acheive my goals. – less
