      I worked at Sports Direct part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The Staff working the same job as myself. Training was provided.

      Cons

      Management were a disgrace, not only with handling of myself, but also with customers. Constant moaning at the smallest and irreverent details.

      Advice to Management

      I believe any company that requires radios in order to communicate with each other in a small shop needs to look at itself.
