    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.

    20% discount is the best thing but possible the worst thing is it is only for you and not family and friends, even if you are buying presents for people.

    No bonus, no overtime, no 'time back' - don't expect anything other than a low salary and an impact on your mental health.
