I don't work.

Also, dumb question here, does anyone know how much experience you need or some level of something to work at a place like a sports store?

no job, other than student.
but that's a negative money flow, so i guess it doesn't count.
during the past couple summers i have worked at my old high school cleaning floors and junk. pretty easy, but got up way too early for paychecks that were way too small.

I work in New Zealand for Freshstart Energy, as I travel round the world, as the company is being wound up, (it has been bought out), I would have to leave soon anyway, thankfully I am out of here 30/11 anyway, I work in the call centre it is not bad.
I used to love working at the supermarket (was only part time through A levels (college) and uni), loads of people my own age, and as I treated it like a proper job, managers liked me. So I loved it, paid well too 6 pounds an hour (when I left, started on 3.32), and double pay on Sundays!

I work at Sportchek

it's good times...except I don't want to work tomorrow :cry:



Anyways, Renegade....As long as you know your sporting goods(even just a little) and don't let a lot of your biases take over, that's basically all you need.

I had never worked in retail prior to this summer....always either a cook, or delivery or yard maitenence...

So, if you have some PK(product Knowledge) and are good at striking up conversations....you're gold.

Renegade-- I used to work at a sports store when I was 16. It was my first job that I completely got on my own. I worked in the field sports dept. and the apparel dept., so I got to deal with the cream of the crop when it came to customers. Some of them thought they knew more about the products than I did even though they had never played the sport or received product training. As long as you're good with people, you should be OK.

My jobs now are kind of all over the place. I haven't had much luck getting work in my field thanks to all those PhD's that have been laid off from biotech companies that take all the low-end jobs, so I've decided to start going with my passions instead of education. This week I will be starting as an intern for a sports radio station in Boston (unless they get me on the snag of not being able to use class credit for the internship as I'm already a college graduate), I coach varsity field hockey at my HS alma mater and we're off to a 2-0-1 start (3-0-1 if you consider our 5-1 pounding of Cushing in a scrimmage). To make up for my varied schedule and training for my 10K, I also waitress/bartend on weekends and at night. I can honestly say I've never loved any of my jobs as much as I love the ones I have now, regardless of how much time they take up.

Seriously. I've gotta head on out for work in a few.

Are you the dude that does the voiceovers?

No. One of the guys that does voiceovers is named Chris Chandler, but he's not that Chris Chandler. Weird, huh?

I work at Wings to Go. I cook, clean, take orders, work the register, a little of everything. It's not a terrible job, but my hours are awful. I need to work about 10 hours a week to pay for my share of my car, and they always make me work like 6 hours friday, 6 hours saturday, and 5 hours tuesday. The worst is during a football game.
