We would engage with customers all day.I learned to communicate with different cultures of people.Management was of top quality to benefit the company only.Youthful workplaceThe pay was unfairBeing at work was the most fun part
It was great company to work for i learnt a lot with them in-terms of sport related gears and my favourite side of the store was the outdoor department. overall the company was a fun working place with challenges faced and tackled using team work in most cases.
free lunch on stock takes
I would come in settle in and then start my day off with the following; Downloading of Bank statements Confirm of bank accounts Reallocating of customer deposits Processing the daily banking of about 20 stores etc
off weekends and public holidays
It is a good company one could work for as it pays a reasonable salary and they also have incentives, medical aid and uif. The company you will get to meet new people sometimes well known sports personnel would come in the store and buy from you. Different customers on daily bases and you get to learn new things everyday.
• Asset management • Fleet management( license, fines, petrol cards) • Buying/selling of motor vehicles • Creating AAA’s • Payment of local and international travel • Capturing payments on AccPac • Making payments on standard bank Online • Managing telephones (Telkom, huge connect, fastnet, switchIT) • Petty cash (audit trails) • Processing daily journals • General office admin
a typical day at work on weekdays, one is always busy and always has something to do in terms of merchandising, etc and on weekends are very focused mostly on customers service as it is very busy especially in festive. I have a lot mostly about different product in different departments and how they work or used for. The hardest part of the job is not making the customers and management happy or when you make a mistake by giving the customer wrong information.
Free lunch at training and the experiential learning
long hours and hard labour

We go in the morning to have a meeting and then we get to work. The company works on an Incentive basis for the sales Assistants, We have to do merchandising. This is not the Sportmans Warehouse displayed, this one that i worked at is the one is South Africa.
Like all companies, SWH has it's pros and cons. What stands out about them is that they give all the necessary tools for skills training, growth and development from flexible staff, through to management. And this allows for growth in the company. Throughout the year there are continuous product knowledge training, workshops, leadership and management training, skills training for specific departments and general in depth training in each and every aspect of the store. From cash desk, receiving, customer carex through all departments, running, cycling, swimming, exercise, outdoor, transports, apparel. It's a company that supports it's staff in it's development. The hours may be long, but it's not any worse than other retail companies.
Discounts, skills training, experience
Sales floor post & assisted with till cash up Daily interaction with customers & staff Daily opening of accounts, Book keeping, Pa announcements , Report - Quality returns decisions (replacements or refunds) Report - Staff roster & payment summary Management, most enjoyable, fun loving & cheerful bunch of people Environment & culture- always busy but warm & welcoming Hardest - Staff rivalry (don't like conflict) Most enjoyed - People & friendly atmosphere
Long hours of work
the workplace culture among the temps was cool but the management messed with the work place environment which led to me leaving and also there was no real place for growth. Lastly the seniors make you do all the work and there's not a thing you can do about it.
Not much other than the vibe created by others
lack of interest on the part of management
