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.
Great discount, flexible hours, learning opportunities
sub-par management, deal with customers
