    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods

    Pros

    This position is seriously the easiest job. You stand in one spot all day and repeat yourself. You occasionally answer the phone and transfer calls, and also guild people in the right direction for their purchases. If you don't mind being bored, this position is for you.

    Cons

    Management will constantly be on you about doing your job correctly, even if you are! They will watch you and listen to everything you do by, "hiding". You get trained for ONE DAY, and they expect you to know exactly what to do, and when you have questions about something, they get mad because your bothering them while they sit in the back with the other managers. And then, if you screw up, they get angry, and this is because no one is ever trained properly.This position, really isn't as effective as what the managers think. Alls you do your whole shift is say, "Hi, how are you. What brings you in today?" But saying "what brings you in today", sometimes makes customers uncomfortable and angry because they dont want to be bothered. I believe greeting is ineffective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the CES do their job, in a way that they believe is effective. If you let us greet people they way we like to be greeted, the customer will feel more comfortable while their shopping. Its so awkward!
