    I have been working at Hibbett Sports full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Slow paced, get to spend time with customers, small staff

    Cons

    company is too large and the corporation is in over their head, District Managers and Regional Managers do not spend enough time with managers and corporate politics are too much. Unless you are a manager or high, the pay is not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depend on other managers to help you in sticky situations and advice. Upper management will not help you and play too many games.

    Pros

    Hibbett values and promotes excellent customer service. Great experience. Lovely co-workers.

    Cons

    Low paying. Strict corporate culture, almost too strict. Low hours. Periods of high volume lead to a great deal of work related stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change merchandizing policies to allow more input from individual stores to allow them to cater to the needs of their area. If they could find a way to do this, I'm certain profits would increase.

    I have been working at Hibbett Sports part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules for employees who are working through college. Hibbett Sports teaches their employees how to act towards a customer, and management emphasizes it daily.

    Cons

    Hibbett Sports pays their employees minimum wage, which is basically saying "I would pay you less if I could". Assistant coaches only received a $1 raise. No commission for non Head Coaches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology--new register software, updated website, new transferring processes. Your employees are an investment, treat them like it.
