Okay place to work
Retail Sales (Current Employee) –  Whitby, ON28 May 2019
The work environment is good but management lacks and they don't balance very well between time off and shifts. You don't get breaks and management doesn't talk to you on ways to improve just on what you do wrong.
Cons
barley gets shifts, no breaks

Fantastic first job
Assistant Manager/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC14 April 2019
For students who need a flexible schedule, it's absolutely fantastic. Management is wonderful and so are your co-workers. Although the salary isn't too crazy, the benefits are. assuming you're an athlete.

Not clean and low pay with long unpredictable hours
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 January 2019
Working at play it again was not very pleasant the store was not clean and the basement where you would have to spend a majority of your shifts was full off black dust and what seemed like mold. Pay was minimal and employee discounts and treatment was lacklustre
Cons
Unpredictable hours

Awesome learning experience
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON13 September 2018
A typical day at work for me would consist of different things. Some days we would be receiving a shipment that I had to help unpack. That took a fair amount to do but I was never left with nothing to do. I learned a lot, play it again sports was a great place for me because of my love for sports. Management was awesome. So nice to me and my coworkers every day. Hardest part of the job is the super busy days when you are running around trying to help customers.
Pros
Good staff, great atmosphere, good management
Cons
Not many hours

Wonderful place to work
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 May 2018
Such amazing staff members and management so its hard to say anything negative about this job. The only concern would be the lack of pay and benefits, however that is expected for a retail job at this level.

Productive and fun sporting goods store
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON1 May 2018
Staff and management are very good, everyone is friendly and works well together. Generally, a very good place to work. In the summer months, the store isn't so busy, however, in the winter, the store is crazy packed. Job security is certainly a concern if you haven't been a member for over a year and can't devote a minimum of 4-5 days a week. As the store doesn't generate much during the summer months, they are forced to cut down hours and staff members. The owner also is rather strict and tough and isn't always fair. Overall, the team is solid and the job is relatively easy and fun.
Pros
Free lunches on weekends
Cons
Job security, hours are tough to come by, no commission
