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

Pros

-Flexible with days off
-Cool people
-Interacting with the public

Cons

-They purposefully keep you part time so they don't have to pay benefits, only a few per store are "allowed" to be full time
-If you want a promotion, you must kiss ass and play the game

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people who are good for the store, not just the people who make you feel like you're big time.

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Part time work in an area you like (fishing)

    Cons

    There are no managers at the store I worked at, only bullies, which permeates the management culture. I also work at REI and can see the difference.
    There are no full timers except management which saves them benefit money.
    Management is obsessed with selling warranty plans, which reflects on the quality of the goods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the bullies and become more like REI.
