    Pros

    the associates and the products sold are great. the team environment is exceptional.

    Cons

    the company is growing too fast and the upper management is not on the page to adapt to this growth, their message is not consistent for field applications. replenishment is a nightmare

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    slow down before delivering to the store level. get more people with retail (store Level) experience involved before rolling out a new program.

    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods

    Pros

    Not hard, can be fun if you enjoy sports, stores are nice. Most people I worked with were cool, store manager was cool.

    Cons

    Boring. You'll stand around doing nothing a lot, which might be fine for some people but not me. A lot of the lower level managers are on power trips and love to express that to you. No opportunities for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat employees like they're just replaceable commodities.

    Pros

    Great employees, co-workers were some of the best friends I've made in a job. Employee discount/friends & family days were great. NSPP and PLCC benefits are AWESOME! They really want you to succeed.

    Cons

    They sometimes put the stuff you didn't do too well above the things that you did great, which made you feel not so awesome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more personable. You don't have to be our best friend but don't act like we all suck when we don't do something with a 10/10

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    They hire employees at SHAMEFUL rates. They are always understaffed, being their turn over rate is so high.. They use and abuse employees and management is horrible. I was so excited to work this this company and have never been so disappointed in a job in my entire life. Shame on you. You have people giving you all they have while you're CEO's live a great life and the rest of your staff who is the reason you make money struggles day to day. I will never bring my business back to this store and will make sure no one I know will ever either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Ability to work with sports equipment, ability to put previous knowledge about sports to good use, and very flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Poor training practices, minimal quarterly raises, their idea of "promotions" is to give you more work and responsibility, but little-to-no extra pay!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More personal training so employees don't have to learn everything through trial and error!
