Jordan Capel – Casual Sales Assistant

I started at sports direct back in 2011 just as a way to earn a bit extra while at university.

I currently work on the shoe department in sports direct at Wheatley Hall road in Doncaster. I can honestly say the amount of opportunities that I’ve been given and potential to earn money is fantastic. I currently earn, on average, around an extra £3 an hour on top of my normal wage. Per week I can earn anywhere from £140 to £180, which then per month gives me an astonishing £550 to £650 a month! This is again on top of my normal wage! So the earning potential for me and anyone else in this job is endless. You make your own wage and being a university student this definitely helps!

I would say my motive is to pay off as much of my university fees as possible, which then of course allows me to prioritise my money on much more important things such as night outs and events!!!

All joking aside, this scheme has definitely benefitted me financially. I`m able to enjoy myself at work with the added bonus of earning just for doing my job… Great! To top it off I work in one of the best stores, the atmosphere I work around is ecstatic and buzzing, you`re always encouraged to earn as much as possible , have fun while doing it and feel part of the team.
