Thread regarding Academy Sports & Outdoors layoffs

Nepotism rules at Academy Sports + Outdoors

Has anybody else noticed how little actual merit has to do with getting a promotion here? It’s never the hardest working or most experienced employees - it is always somebody who knows the right person or is related to the right person.

No wonder people are deciding to leave on their own - there is no future here unless you know the right people. Sad but true.

Ummm....yes, that is all that is said on Glassdoor reviews and what my experience was in ecomm. Saw someone get promoted to manager who definitely should not be managing people. She had no people skills and barely any retail marketing experience.
