It gives you an opportunity, as a sports enthusiast, to assist and support other individuals looking to excel/join/start sports as an ambition or simply ad leisure.
The population working here is sports inclined which makes it a very dynamic work place conducive to physical activity and rigour.
The daily work helps you stay fit physically at the same time giving you ample space and time to further your sports ambitions.

Dislikes

The stores are located outside the city which makes it extremely difficult to travel, considering Bangalore traffic.
The leadership is not always based on merit (it could be limited to only the store I worked in which was extremely poor in choosing the right people for the right job). The meritorious had been ignored (not inclusive of me) along with their work being credited to other individuals.
Decathlon being a really big company is very stingy when it comes to hygiene and cleanliness, employing physical labour instead of small investments to keep the workplace healthy. The store I was a part of was located next to a highway with humongous amounts of dust and dirt flowing into the store. There was no mechanism to prevent it and in one day, the employees inhaled dust equivalent to smoking 3 packs of cigarettes. I, personally being an asthma patient, had been admitted to the hospital thrice with sever congestion and breathing difficulties.
There is no system in place and the leadership within the store are judge, jury and executioner's for any and all decisions regarding employees including but not limited to salary, appraisals, promotions, training opportunities etc.
There is no method to track an individual's contribution to the company and it can be easily taken over by another (which has happened a lot).

An individual's academic qualifications amount to nothing here. A person clearing the cbse board for 12th could earn just as much as a person with a professional MBA degree, irrespective of the contribution that they could potentially provide with that knowledge.

Job security is a myth as your employment can be revoked within 13 hrs with no reason needed to be given. Any appeals to the upper management goes unheard as the leadership within the store is given full authority to handle the employees in the manner seen fit.

Overall, decathlon is a place good for temporary jobs while a search is on for better prospects depending on your qualifications.

Work

Physically challenging and mentally numbing.

Mean managers, career risk, very less job security, minimal appraisal, No career growth, No travel, full politics, zero learning, terrible work environment and culture, no work life balance.

Dislikes

They cheat you into giving job to you. They will tricked you with less salary and made promises but were never delivered. The manager denies all on your face saying he was not the one who hired you and made promises. Terrible compensation. They will ask you to take more and more responsibility and you will deliver or die trying but in the end they will blame you only for losses and give you nothing in return. They forget what you did but will only talk about your failure. Upper management is very mean, they keep all their salary budget to themselves and give only to managers who are dear to them. Favour-ism is in their blood. Just say what they want to hear or else they will throw you out somewhere else. No employee satisfaction, they just talk about it to hire. In reality they only care about business.

Work

Hate it just like 1000 other employees in Decathlon. 30% attrition rate speaks for itself. I worked with them for 3 years and never thought of switching jobs because I had faith in decathlon, but they...I HATE THEM

Company's concept is good for their customers and always trying to satisfying them at any cost. Vast product range. Initial learning are good.

Dislikes

Not for future growth or career development. Politics n favouritism are the part of the culture. Not a good place for those believe in ethics values laws n norms of the corporate world. If you are clever, do not like to do the work on time... It's a best place for you.

Work

Initially it was good as the company told me I am a sales manager. But after a period of time I was not more than a cheap labour for them. No excitement.. no working environment... No job timings...No future growth

Being in a retail, it gave me a platform to interact with others while at work. It allowed me to be friends with people at work and play any sport with them beyond work hours at the store. Timings were flexible and I could choose my shift

Dislikes

Lifting heavy materials like a unskilled labor, unloading trucks, Physical work staying up all night without sleep, No development or Training for 4 months. Work place was scary under the store manager, who was suspending and firing employees for fun.

Dislikes

Decathlon organisation is very good but you have aware from some people.According to me just focus on your work and not the people working over there might be some times you will get people around you who will have completely different working attitude than you.Only you relations will help you not your skills,talent, dedication and hardwork.

Work

If you know what you have to do and you are getting support for that then it's very interesting otherwise average.

The work culture is very as its there's a flat hierarchy. Benefits from the employees are also good. I really admire this company.

Dislikes

In some stores of India the work timings even for the ladies are not limited. They make you work till late night which is the only drawback working in this company.

Work

Exciting, learning process but hectic and they make you work like a donkey sometimes.
