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

    Pros

    -easy job, fun people to work with although the staff was dominated by males -pays more than some other non-commission based retail jobs -always give you a break on shift even if its only for 15 minutes -easy to move from cashier to another part of the store or move up in leading/management

    Cons

    -long shifts for part time employees (9 hours usually), expect you to work at least 3-4 days a week -extremely into being the best store in the company (hard on workers to maximize customer service)

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

    Pros

    - Opportunities for growth and internal promotions. - Excellent training programs. - Easy-access HR resources. - Fast-paced, clean, high-end retail environment provides for a stimulating work day.

    Cons

    - It's hard work! Selling customers on credit cards, adding warranties and protection plans, upselling products and adding transaction items are a minimum expectation. - Long hours as a result of stringent labor limits put on scheduling manager. - NO MORE PART TIME BENEFITS AS A RESULT OF THE ACA.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing an awesome job and I really appreciate all the training you've provided me so that I'm confident in doing my job. Thank you for making Dick's a fun and supportive place to work at. I enjoy coming in to work every day and feel rewarded for my hard work. But isn't there some way to keep part-time benefits???
