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

    Pros

    I loved working here. The environment allowed you to easily relate to people and it was very relaxed. They have excellent core values that, when followed, it ensures you success and opportunity in their company. I left on excellent terms to take care of a sick family and they completely understood and offered me a position, if available, if I wanted to work there again!

    Cons

    I did not have a single bad experience working for Hibbett Sports in Lake Charles Louisiana. Moss Bluff to be exact. I got along with everyone and everyone got along with me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great environment to learn about working with a team of people. Fun atmosphere. Easy to pick up on all sporting equipment. Great incentives.

    Cons

    work on weekends. Sometimes relying on a team member can be difficult if you feel more productive working solo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved this job very much! Always was allowed to pick hours that fit my school schedule. Great environment to be in and thrive in. Learning customer service was a great asset for later jobs in life.

    I worked at Hibbett Sports

    Pros

    Most Sudays off, 1 weekend a month off, good benefits, corporate support. A great regional manager. Easy training through videos. I loved my team and my DM always backed me up which was very helpful.

    Cons

    Pay was a little low and bonus a little low for industry averages. Computers outdated. Company does not trust Assistant Managers enough. Only person ever allowed in the store alone is the store manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please update your bonuses and your computers. Also learn to trust your assistant. I had very good assistants but I was not able to give them your trust.

    Pros

    Best place to interract with people who love sports. Nice place for people who love shoes and other sporting goods.

    Cons

    Does not stay open late or open early so if you have another job or school, it is hard to get a lot of hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to alway give feedback to employees to let them know how they are doing as far as customer service.
