Fun and dynamic workplace but needs to become more competitive in the retail environment.
Sportsgirl is a fun and dynamic place to work for women of all ages, it works to maintain a great, inclusive, supportive, friendly and non-competitive workplace culture where the absence of individual KPI's and a customer-service grounded approach to retail eliminates the usual underlying sense of hostility and in-house competition that a lot of retailers suffer from when it comes to the morale of their employees. Your team is just that, a team - and this has been one of the things that I have valued most about working within the company.
The opportunity to progress through the company is absolutely encouraged, with a preference to hire internally where possible to offer this to employees where they seek to move between positions, advance into management roles or drop back into part-time or causal roles.
Sportsgirl is brand that has been around for a long time, and with the increased presence of a large range of multi-national retailers within Australia, there's something to be said for their need to play catch-up with the benefits and features offered by other retailers among both consumers and staff which make them a destination online, in-store and as an employee of the brand. The management perks are few, the pay is average for part-time, full-time and management staff, and its processes for day to day tasks are in desperate need of updating to make things like stocktake, returns, rewards and incentives and customer service a smoother and more competitive experience among other retailers and staff alike.
Great discount for part-time and full-time employees, great commitment to career progression for internal employees, fun workplace, fantastic workplace culture and environment.
