    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The effort and resources used to on board external store managers is unbelievable. 6 weeks of intense immersion in either Chicago or Atlanta followed by 4 weeks of transition in their home market.

    Cons

    Some of the markets aren't prepared for the new managers and what they can bring to the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that all store managers and above attend the training to be on the same page

    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Paid well.

    Flexible scheduling and hours.

    Cons

    Short breaks if any.

    Often understaffed.

    Not enough training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire someone for a position train them adequately for it. I worked as a "Customer Service Specialist" for over a year and was never shown how to propped do deposits because no one ever took the time to show me. Total waste of talent.
