    Pros

    If you like sports and want a job for a little extra money this is great for you.

    Cons

    Holidays can be busy at times like everywhere else. It's aggravating keeping everything organized when people just throw items anywhere.

    Pros

    I love the guys I work with. Most of the time, it'll be guys like you.
    The customer service is great.
    Employee discount is outstanding at 25% off your total purchase.
    Flexible hours. Great summer job for younger guys

    Cons

    Pay is horrible.
    The music played throughout the store is horrible. I know it sounds like I'm knit-picking here, but my guys and I literally think corporate has a 13-year-old girl's playlist on shuffle.
    Make a bank deposit after close and off the clock? Really?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Taking the bank deposit at night and off the clock is an awful idea. I heard we were changing that so it's all good. Train head coaches to hire better people rather than worrying about so much employee theft, misuse of coupons, improper discounts, etc. I work with some guys with questionable character and heard stories of some even worse.

    Pros

    Great company with a positive working environment, both friendly and relaxed.

    Cons

    Store operations could benefit by streamlining the promotion and hiring process. Managers can no longer hire or promote sales associates to ac. They have to wait for a dm to interview and decide. This can take weeks, or months, depending upon when the dm decides to visit your store.

    They'd also benefit by updating the employee dress code to reflect current sports fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers control of the hiring and promotion process.

    I worked at Hibbett Sports full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not a great deal of pressure to pass sales goals. Hours aren't cut or anything like that, but rather it's treated as more of a friendly competition. Full-time receive a choice of different benefit packages (i.e. health, dental & visual). Also, store discount and sales contests can get you hooked up with free/cheap stuff.

    Cons

    Managers hours are definitely too extreme for the amount of compensation. So, while there is opportunity for advancement, you'll have to spend at least some time (over a year for sure) as a Head Manager and those hours are grueling.
