    I worked at Sporting Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Okay salary and decent location

    Cons

    As a receptionist people throughout the company didn't seem to show me respect. I was often belittled. I was once told by another employee that there was a mess in the toilet, she seemed to think I was the one that should clean it up.

    I have been working at Sporting Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great working environment. Vastly improves your punting

    Cons

    No incentive to do anything above and beyond. Never a pat on the back after a good job but every mistake is accounted for. You can work in a job with less experience required that wouldnt make you work weekends and would probably pay you more money.
