Sharks Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

The San Jose Sharks are a professional ice hockey team based in San Jose, California. They compete in the National Hockey League (NHL) as a member of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference. The franchise is owned by San Jose Sports & Entertainment Enterprises. Beginning play in the 1991–92 season, the Sharks initially played their home games at the Cow Palace, before they moved to their present home, now named SAP Center at San Jose, in 1993. The SAP Center is known locally as the Shark Tank.

On January 18, 2020, "Reddit" user "americanhymnal" says the Sharks team "sucks" in a discussion on the site:

"This is the worst spirited Sharks team I have ever seen and it sucks to watch."

Current Employee - Sales Representative says

"I have been working at San Jose Sharks full-time for more than a year Cons: Managers play politics with all employees. Pay is terrible. Long hours. No employee recognition whatsoever. Drama between ALL departments. They "claim" to be culture focused, but its all smoke in mirrors."

Former Employee - Sales says

"I worked at San Jose Sharks full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Management is under qualified or incompetent of making decisions. Pay is below average. Work overtime for no additional pay. HR doesn't care about you. Department clicks. Get what they want and dispose of you."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at San Jose Sharks full-time for more than 5 years Cons: - Extremely weak leadership - Heavy focus on "the numbers" that completely dismisses the human and moral aspect of business (i.e. It's reported that the EVP has taken programming and events from the Sharks Foundation and turned them into for-profit initiatives to boost numbers) - "Burn and churn" mentality - Extremely low salaries that makes it difficult for employees to live where they work - No coaching, learning or development opportunities - Company values are not recognized or reinforced - Despite it being a small office, employees rarely know each other outside of their immediate departments"


"I worked at San Jose Sharks Cons: Overhaul they did has it a complete micro managing place. Very tough to work if you like a good work balance."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at San Jose Sharks full-time for more than 5 years Cons: New management that came in in 2015 was horrendous. The EVP was demeaning, disrespectful, and out of touch with the market and environment"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at San Jose Sharks part-time for more than 3 years Cons: unorganized, uppers do not care or listen"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at San Jose Sharks full-time Cons: This place is a joke. Most unorganized, unprofessional sports franchise I have ever seen. Upper management has no idea what they are doing, have no business being leaders and were promoted just because they have been there awhile. The new management had zero respect or gratitude for long term employees and "rules" are enforced by some departments but not others. It's disgusting the way this organization treats employees. If you are looking for a "sales" job, forget it. You will sell nothing because the product is terrible. Save yourself the headaches and steps back in your career and go work for another team in the Bay Area."

Former Employee - Street Team Member says

"I worked at San Jose Sharks part-time for more than 3 years Cons: There are only a few employees on the team that actually do a good job and do what needs to be done. The rest are usually young college students who have only one or two jobs under their belt. The organization itself is awful and poorly managed. There is no way to move up in the company and they care more about money than their employees."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at San Jose Sharks full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Leadership is more focused on saving themselves and their own bottom line than their departments and the company. They've put employees through long grueling hours with outside consultants to try to improve company culture for zero meaningful changes to be implemented. The principles they say drive the company are smoke and mirrors and aren't actually implemented from the top down making for a confusing work culture with lack of overall clear direction. Until they get a leadership overhaul, things won't improve creating a lack of trust in an environment that needs trust when you work that many hours in an industry where you work in it for passion, not for money. HR also doesn't have true authority to step in and create meaningful change as it's dictated by a select few VPs."

Cashier, Cook, Food Preparation (Former Employee) says

"a typical day at work I opened the store and prep all the fryers and prepared all the trays with bread. made sure that the cash register had correct amount. I learned to work well with my coworkers and I also learned managerial skills. my manager was a wonderful person he taught me a lot of skills on how to run a fast food restaurant. I had 5 wonderful coworkers that was like family to me. the hardest part about the job was when it burned down cause I lost my employment and I lost the best job I ever had. The most enjoyable part of my job was the customers I love meeting new people and I meet all kinds."

Cashier (Former Employee) says

"Sharks is a great restaurant. Very friendly place to come in eat or take your food with you. I learned a lot of how to deal with unhappy customers."
