I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods

Pros

Not too many pros for the footwear department. I guess the best one would be the discount.

Cons

Footwear department is HARD on a person. Constantly running up and down stairs and climbing shelves. Saturdays are horrendous, there is no way to serve all the customers in a timely manner which means you are run ragged and the customers are still upset when they leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While I worked there, there were certain employees who were given preference over others as to their work week. Which left other employees working nights and weekends EVERY WEEK. Not very fair to those of us that have families.

    Pros

    fast paced
    sports environment
    leadership opportunities

    Cons

    long hours
    low pay
    overworked
    under valued

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you expect people to care you have to pay more. You get what you pay for when someone does not work hard because they are underpaid for the job that they are doing. Invest in your employees. I have worked at Dicks Sporting Goods for 16 months and I have already had 7 different managers in that short time period. It says something when not even the management can stick around more than a year. We say that we are a "Customer Service First" business, although what they really mean is push freight at all costs and help customers if they find you.
