Performer | San Antonio, TX | Nov 30, 2019
Great place as a starting job.
Working for academy wasn’t bad the other employees were really nice. Most to all management was willing to teach you what you needed to know to do the job. Others such as head store director was not willing to help or even teach you what you needed to know to complete a task.

the management discriminate against disabled veterans, if you get hurt at work, they said you didn't, they will miss gade you.
very poor management , the will not take good care of you as an employed water if you are a full time or part time, they will discriminate against you if you are hispanic, latino an or disabled veteran.

Merchandising Assistant | Selma, TX | Mar 7, 2020
Not a good environment
Horrible management and work environment. The Company is not concerned with you as a person, and has zero interest in learning and development. Employment is a revolving door and will replace you with anybody.

Good Experience
Working here was a wonderful experience, the managers worked with you on schedules and were very understanding with family business. Wish everything would have worked out with all my family's schedules so I could still be working there!

Responsibilities
You will have to be responsible for the work of almost every position in the store regardless of title or position. You will be given the work of the other departments regularly and scrutinized if you dont do it for them correctly.

Do you drug test
Asked May 15, 2016
No one I work with has had to complete one but the company does give them if given a reason, such as an injury on the job or behavior they deem necessitates a drug test
Answered Aug 28, 2019
Not unless you give them a reason to.
Answered May 11, 2019
What is a typical day like for you at Academy Sports + Outdoors?
Asked Mar 19, 2020
Running back and forth trying to complete anything for a store manager who can't make up her mind.
Answered Nov 21, 2020
Well to be honest it all depends. Most of the days I've worked, it was great because of my co-workers. The positions there at Academy aren't hard at all, but fairly easy. Just do your job and you won't have to worry about a manager being in your face. But this only depends on your store, because, I've seen other stores slack in employee morale, management sucks, and just don't care how the store looks, nor care what the employees do. Basically just there getting paid. Then wonder why you never can convert to full time or get any hours. Again, do your job!
Answered Oct 27, 2020
What is the Dress code?
Asked Feb 8, 2017
At my Academy, they had either a usual blue academy shirt that had to be tucked in. They also allowed different shirts they would allow to be work that were Magellan. A blue Magellan fishing shirt is a popular option (due to it doesn’t have to be tucked in), and they sold it for pretty cheap. Also have a long sleeve version that doesn’t have to be tucked in. Pants include khakis, jeans that have no crazy stitching or designs, or other “bland” colors of khakis. (Black, grey, or tan). Be sure to wear super comfortable shoes.
Answered Aug 17, 2019
Black or kakhi pants, no shorts, close tied shoes. Don't wear leggings. Some stores allow blue or black jeans.
