It ok

Customer Service Specialist/Cashier Supervisor (Former Employee)

I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThis was my first job , I learn a lot of different skills. The employees are all nice. Everyone is pretty much young. The manager are not really watching you

ConsThey will make sure they don't pay you over time, I had to sue to get my over time pay. The nice private quiet break room.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It is a good part-time job for a student.

Front End Associate (Current Employee)
State College, PA

I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time for less than a year

ProsAbility to purchase the best athletic wear with a pretty good associate's discount for a part-time worker. Flexible scheduling as well.

ConsThe fact that the store doesn't really follow the "customer is always right" rule is hurting the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to be more aware of what the customer wants as well as what they don't want. Also the forcing of the store card on the customers really annoys the customer. If the customers want to sign up for the scorecard, they will. It shouldn't need to be forced after asking one time.

Lead Bike Tech.....1006

Bike Tech (Current Employee)
Kalamazoo, MI

I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible hours, breaks, casual dressed and enjoyable atmosphere.

ConsPay, advancement, some organization and last favoritism.

Advice to Senior ManagementWorking with DSM start to finish was a learning experience. At the beginning DSM promises you the world, but after about 5 months. Then some management show true colors, they start treating certain employees differently and have their favorites. I have given the company nothing but my loyalty and commitment. Customers loved me and was reward from that by management with the new "WOW" flairs. I planned on moving up to management and it took one misunderstood situation to have me terminated. I felt it was unlawful and most of all unfair on how it was handled.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsAwesome employees, and work environment

Consmicro-managed, and can be difficult to work around your schedule from time to time.

Advice to Senior Managementcompensation comes in more forms than wait for corporate to give you a review, and a 7cent raise, a simple pat on the back would be nice as well.
