    OK, but unrealistic expectations

    Cashier (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGet a decent discount, work with some very nice people, try to accommodate your schedule unless it is in the Month of December:) Staying open for Black Friday all day and night like all the loser stores such as *mart, etc.

    ConsI work as a cashier, and these are the duties of a person getting just above minimum wage. Greet customers and ask if they found everything ok, get them to sign up for a scorecard( a free loyalty card), try to upsell a protection plan if available on their product(s), try to get them to open a credit card, take returns, use coupons that only work for 1/2 of our clothing and merchandizing, explain why the other half do not accept coupons, turn away coupons received on the internet from unauthorized places, answer the phone, not allowed to drink water at the front line, and do it all within 1-2 minutes because of the constant understaffing, and fold cloths if you happen to get a breather.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more cashiers, give cashiers so more $, all employees should sell the protection plan and credit cards, not just the cashiers, type in larger letters which sale clothes are not on sale, have a sign posted we only accept authorized Dick's credit cards. Start making ALL employees mention the scorecard and credit card, everyone should answer the phone. REALLY need to employ more cashiers, waiting in line for 10-15 minutes sucks, and there is no way that the person will get a scorecard let alone a protection plan or credit card. ALL store, no matter the size should have a greeter to help out to show clients where everything is and help keep the lines flowing.

    I felt that the experience was a good one during college.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe schedule was always clear and concise. There was usually the number of hours available that you requested.

    ConsAt times you felt overwhelmed and understaffed. There was an unreal expectation for what you should know about every product.

    Cool place to work, not so cool pay

    Lodge Associate (Current Employee) Loganville, GA

    ProsGreat atmosphere for someone who is passionate about sports or the outdoors, meeting diverse people, relatively easy work, great employee discounts

    ConsVERY low hours at times, seems to be little oppurtunity for advancement, sometimes managers expect unrealistic goals to be met

    Advice to Senior Managementmst of my managers are good people, but they expect the employees to automatically know everything with very little training.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
