Lorry Driver Class 1 (Former Employee) – Mansfield – 17 March 2018
.A day at work can be 21 hours if double man as only told where going once get to transport office. I learn to get on with my job the best way i can. I found management ok but sometimes if things go wrong they will let you know about it and they can go about it the wrong way. Workplace culture could be better in a lot of ways as some drivers get look after better than others. The hardest part of the job is a lot of bad delivery points as push heavy cages up hill and where one has to part to do deliverys. The most enjoyable part of the job is some of the work colleges as some ae very helpful but some will tell tales about other drivers and get them the sack if they don't like them.
good work colleges and left on your own to get on with job.
Sports Direct Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Sutton, Greater London – 16 March 2018
When i was working at sportsdirect the job was great meet great people have good people to work with but it seemed the higher you went the more someone was aiming at you and you had the feeling that your life was in the hands of the management staff

Full Time Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Doncaster – 12 March 2018
Good place to work if you have a full time contract. The pay is above minimum wage and you are able to get commission aswell. Most days you'd come in and have a set number of tasks to do, all while you serve customers. Management depends store by store. Full time hours are 45 per week, and is a strain on your personal life.
Worst company to work for, never work at sports direct
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Wolverhampton – 12 March 2018
You get treated poorly&unfairly. Management dont speak to staff with respect or treat them equally. Your effort is unappreciated. 0 hour contract job.
It is a 0 hour contract so you’re not guaranteed the same hours each week, you are treated unfairly and unequally, management speak to you in a bad way, you’re always still working until after your shift ending time and have to ask if you can go, you do your best for them and they still don’t appreciate it, bad and unpleasant atmosphere, Wolverhampton city centre store management are disgusting and should not be managers, this is a bad company to work for and the Wolverhampton store is the worst store to work at
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Aberdeen – 12 March 2018
I was only at SD for a short period of time, but the time I was there was both stressful and upsetting. The manager on at least one occasion called me a rather rude name after I went home early because I was in pain, and I was expected to walk 45 minutes to work alone at 6am on Sundays because the manager refused to give me later shifts due to no buses running.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Mansfield – 11 March 2018
I learnt alot at sports direct most of the tasks were easy and straight forward to do. Only issues i had with the place was the Zero hour contract and the pay wage which at the time of employment was around 5.20 per hour.
ASSISTANT STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) – kent – 8 March 2018
If you go into this company externally you do not get treated the same way as others. There was no training given, in an assistant managers role all i completed was basic tasks. Management wasn't organised. You work way past your scheduled hours and do not get paid for this.
If you work hard and are happy with early or late shifts this is a great place to work. Aways things to do and learn and a variety of roles such as delivery tills shoes clothes close down etc. Really nice staff everyone gets on with each other. You get comission even if you dont sell anything and holiday pay is great. Current managers are nice we get on well. Its tough sometimes with rude customers but you get used to it
Working here was okay for the first couple of shifts but the workers made no effort to make me, as a new employee, feel comfortable here. Management were not willing to compromise when it came to shift times around my university timetable.
