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

    Pros

    50% off discounts of certain brands during certain months, flexible scheduling, minimal skills required, multiple positions to work in or work towards

    Cons

    Low pay, manager turn over and sometimes managers that are not professional or respectful in the workplace, not many challenges in the workplace so not a lot of opportunity to grow as an employee

    Advice to Management

    More employee incentives and team-building activities such as company kick-ball leagues or something of that nature since it is a sporting goods store, more instruction as to the steps necessary to grow within the company, more training for managers and action taken if a manager makes an employee feel uncomfortable in their work environment

    Pros

    Offers a lot of employee empowerment if you know and understand company procedure and policy. Company creates a culture to go above and beyond for customers and that's what retail is about.

    Cons

    Upper management is intimidating - they have little interest in interacting with or getting to know store associates aside from telling you what you're doing wrong and what needs fixed. Low sales volume departments get zero attention from store-level management. Company is unrelenting in their termination; I've seen many good, honest people lose their jobs over misunderstandings regarding employee discount and coupon policy. Little growth opportunity unless you want to become a manager and this company goes through managers like water through a faucet.

    Advice to Management

    Upper-level management needs to make an effort to get to know their associates.

    Pros

    Hey, If you're passionate about the sport you are working (mine was golf) you'll love your job. Though its hard to be passionate about apparel (the people who had the biggest problems there. If you're passionate, you'll love it.

    Cons

    Sometimes different members of the management will tell you conflicting things.
