Join the Sports Basement Team


We're one big giant family and we all love the same stuff—getting outside as much as possible, staying healthy, and helping our customers do the same. Although we do have specific departments you'll be based in, we value our ability to stay nimble and help wherever we're needed.

Customer Team

If you love talking about outdoor gear, this is the position for you! From introducing beginners to a new sport or hobby to trading insider tips with experts, you'll get to talk to a huge range of customers about the gear and adventures you love the most.

Bike Team

Bike mechanics and bike aficionados will find a home away from home in our bike shops. You’ll have the chance to get your hands dirty in the workshop and share your wealth of bike knowledge with our customers.

It's one thing to read an article and click the apply button, but it's another thing entirely to come in for the interview! Here's everything you'd like to ask about applying at Sports Basement and what it's like to actually work here.

How do I apply for a position?

You can either drop by one of our stores and fill out a paper application (we love getting a chance to meet you!), or you can fill out the application form here. Resumes aren't required, but can be emailed to us at

There’s a position I’d like to apply for but I don’t see it listed. Can I still apply?

Of course! We're always accepting applications for all positions, so feel free to apply.

How do I apply for a position at a new store?

We announce that we're ready to hire for new stores in our weekly newsletter, so you'll know if you subscribe! Otherwise, just keep checking back. We'll update our application form to include the new store as an option, and we'll post the new store on our Job Openings page.

I applied in-person at a store. What’s next?

You'll be contacted by a lead or manager from that store soon. Keep in mind that it can sometimes take a few weeks for us to respond to applicants, especially around the holiday season.

How should I dress for my interview?

We're not exactly a suit-and-tie kind of place, but neither are we a pajama-bottoms-at-work place, either. Dress in clean, comfortable business casual attire and you'll be just fine.

Does Sports Basement promote from within?

We absolutely do! Most of our store leaders and corporate team were promoted from the sales floor.

I submitted my resume online - when can I expect to hear back?

You'll be contacted by a lead or manager from the store you selected within about 4 weeks. Keep in mind that it can sometimes take a few weeks more for us to respond to applicants around the holiday season.

Can Sports Basement work with my class schedule/other job schedule?

We value your time very, very highly. We'll work with you to arrange your schedule around your classes or other job. We want you to have a life outside of work, and we’re happy to work with you to make that happen.
