    The best thing about the benefits are that they can increase the low wage to make it more bearable to work there. But the negatives are that if you didn't work on the shoe department it was very hard to gain a lot of benefits.

    Despite being on a zero hour contract they still expected you to fir your time off around them as though you should be grateful to them rather than them grateful to you.

    The Sports Direct benefits package is not all as it seems. You can only use your staff 'discount' in the store that you work in and only on a Thursday or whatever day that is selected for your store, also you can only access this benefit after working for 3 months.

    incentive earnings, from selling own products like firetrap, boost your wage. On busy periods its possible to make over £60 but that just depends on the products you actively sell

    Every so often, a very decent offer comes around - 50% of short break holidays was a recent example. Get 1 hour paid holiday for every 8 hours worked. Paid quarterly.
