Obviously, not everyone will have a difficult time as a cashier, you always have something to do, and it is a pretty straight forward position. Depending on the other departments, your day will range from average to absolute misery.I would not be as bitter about the job if I was not sexually harassed by several coworkers throughout my time with the company.

Supportive staff, Productive and fun workplace, friendly environment. I enjoy my work. The management is very supportive. You need to work a few months to get full time hours if you start as a part timer.
Pros
Friendly environment
Cons
Not enough hours

Sportchek is like any other retail job, workers are expected to do more, and deal with more, than what they are paid. New hires are often paid more than some of the employees who had been working there for several years.
They are flexible with hours, especially if you play a sport and need time off for a tournament, and you can always trade shifts with coworkers if they are willing.

Management can be very uptight, depending on the day, and sometimes offer little help if your department is busy.

This job can teach you great customer service skills, how to have a hard work ethic, and how to be patient with frustrating customers if you are willing to learn. You will be praised, but you won't be compensated for always going above and beyond.

If you're a high school or college student looking to work a minimal amount of hours to either get a little cash or entry level work experience, then this job can be a good fit.
Pros
Great discount, flexible hours, learning opportunities
Cons
sub-par management, deal with customers

The only concern is manager issues not being addressed, lack of professionalism (mostly with younger staff), and favoritism. Which nothing too serious ever happened, but its unfortunate to be ignored when complaints arise.

Working at Sportchek is an awesome experience. Make friends that share the same passion as you. Gained lots of retail skills which is very useful. Management is a good balance of fun but also getting work done.

A typical day at work would show that the mornings start off fairly slowly, depending on the time of year of course and continue to gradually get quicker until the store closes. I learned a lot at sportchek however I would have stayed with the company if not for the incompetent store management. Unfortunately, most people who make it up to management are not fit to manage people. The hardest part of the job was dealing with some management members, abusive customers that get backed up by management. The most enjoyable part of the job is your fellow coworkers. They make the job worth the struggle.

Sportchek was a reasonably consistent work environment that stayed within the reasonable demands of your job expectations. There was room for pay increase and upward career mobility if desired.

SC 389 is a fun sports environment to be involved in with regards to the product you are selling and being trained in, as well as the customers you are greeting. The fellow workers are usually younger and there is a high school drama and gossip environment involved.

The tasks themselves weren't particulairily riveting, but I enjoyed working there. Staff and managers were extremely helpful and friendly. Extremely good discounts even if you're only working part time.

The work wasn't the problem, the work was actually very fun. I used to pick up all the shifts I can just because I enjoyed the experience. The troubling part was dealing with a bunch of unprofessional unfair managers who power trip on you all day just to feel better about their miserable lives. They favour certain people over others. It's hard to make them feel smart and important because most of them are actually stupid and insignificant. Say goodbye to your hours if you accidentally rub off one of them the wrong way. The general manager was also racist and treated people of colour as secondary employees. You gotta act as a "model minority" if you are a minority employee or else you're not getting any hours. Even if you put in the most work you're still considered secondary. Overall the treatment from most managers was horrific, unfair and unprofessional. Again it's a fun place to work with great discounts, but for your health and sanity, don't work here.

working at sport check is great, but unfortunately the pay is not what i expected and the hours are not given for full time. it is a great job for part time workers and for students that are doing school and need flexible work hours.

Decent for part-time and while you are in school. Not many shifts available due to mall hours. Management is okay for most-part, one of the much better customer service jobs I've worked
