Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 30 September 2018
learned many useful things such as customer service, inventory counts, some cash experience, and lots of knowledge on the products being sold. coworkers were wonderful and the overall environment was good however the managers are consistently critical, condescending, and are not at all understanding. part of the reason I quit was a lack of understanding between me and my manager .
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 September 2018
It's a typical retail job where customers can either make or break your day. Some days are extremely slow, while others you can't even breathe it's so busy. The management is okay, and the work hours are relatively flexible. But the stress from customers can get to you.
Cashier & Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Rocky View, AB – 12 September 2018
Customer Service Representative and Full-Time Cashier. This job is an entry level position in the retail sector. There are lots of young and part-time employees working while still finishing high school. So a high level of patience and cheerful attitude is required. Schedule changes without notice and you get used to working on call.
Sales Support Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 September 2018
As someone who has been given two advancements at Sportchek I can say it is not easy for most employees. Management depends on location but is usually lacking in communication. Great benefits to working for the company such as flexible schedules and great employee purchase programs. It is overall a good part time job.

i worked at sportchek in stoney creek for a year and during that time had met and helped many people but also during that time i had to find things that made time go by quicker. wasn't always something to do to pass the time but also never had full time positions available
Hard Goods Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Prince Albert, SK – 4 September 2018
The manager is fun sometimes but he is kind of sexist he keeps the girls in the job longer and they get paid more compared to guys in the workplace and the guys have a harder time getting time off compared to the women
Cashier (Current Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 21 August 2018
Working here for a few years has been an awesome experience. It's a family, and it feels like home walking through those doors. It's a job that I love having and it's so great to work here that i'd recommend it to anybody.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 August 2018
They dont give you enough hours and they are not very good at training but the job is not too bad. It is good for someone who doesn't really need to work but extra money is good. Weekdays are quite slow throughout the year so you have a lot of time to just clean or hang and tag clothes. It's not hard and you just have to do what the managers tell you but for the most part they don't tell you what to do unless you're really doing something wrong.
Clothing Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 July 2018
-Being a clothing advisor, you just fold, organize and maintain cleanliness in your department and you're expected to ensure every customer is greeted and helped if needed. -Working more than 5 hours definitely feels like time isn't moving, especially because they enforce the "rule" workers aren't to chat with one another. makes working very lonely, sometimes you'll rely on customers for socialization :( -Discount was great and coworkers are awesome, but management is what gets you. they're great and friendly at first but you see their true colours and how power hungry, condescending and how out of touch they are with employees. they expect everyone to follow the rules but don't do so with themselves. -But the discount is great so i guess thats nice (cost plus 10% but must be regular price, cant stack discounts)
discount is cost plus 10% (thats about half off the ticket price)
management is condescending, advancement is out of the question
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 July 2018
Absolutely horrid place to work at. Do not even apply to this place, especially the Robson St, BC location. Management is awful and childish. They are very apathetic to HR problems that happen like sexual harassment, but they will write you up just for standing when there’s nothing to do. If I could give this place less than 1 star I would. It’s disappointing because the job itself is not difficult, but management is awful, thus making it not worth it. They love to play favourites and they are not afraid to show it. They treat everyone like children. Minimal pay makes the discount not even worth it.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 16 July 2018
Sport Chek is an excellent place to work, especially if you need a flexible work schedule, love sports and want to work in a friendly environment with like minded people. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping a customer find exactly what they need and need to know for a sport or activity they are looking to get involved in. Helping customers get the proper gear so that they can enjoy their sport or activity is the most rewarding aspect of the job.
CASHEIR (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 July 2018
there is a grat discount which is why many people stay. At the store i work at tho there is not alot of hours for the workers so some people work once a month even with open availability. also they only do schedules one week at a time which does not leave time to plan activities ahead.
