    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice benefits and flexible, reasonable scheduling.

    Cons

    Unpleasant work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the understanding that the corporate culture of this publicly traded company is very unlikely to change, look for all the intangible (free) things you can do to keep employees engaged, having fun, and excited to be there. Store level managers have a tough, tough gig. They really do. However, helping the staff to keep their chins up could help to provide a better work environment and slow the inevitable turnover that makes your life as a manager even tougher.

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some stores make is a great place to work. Some store make it a true team/family kind of environment that makes work pretty enjoyable, and fun.

    Cons

    Too many clowns, not enough Circus.

    Management rarely hires within depending on the location you are at, basically makes it purposeless to come in with intentions to grow. Which promotes people to use this as an easy transition/ side job. which then leads to employees that care less about their work perfomance.
