Not a bad company to work for if you're flexible.

I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time for more than a year

Pros

Fair pay for retail. Good discount through vendors. All associates treated pretty equally. Nice benefits if you qualified for them.

Cons

The schedule was constantly changing at the last minute. Communication from management down was completely lacking and often times people got written up for things they had never been trained on. Most often things didn't get done on time or incorrectly because payroll had to be cut and there simply wasn't enough time to both satisfy customers and work on tasks. Just like most retail- it was a gossip mill.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make more time for training and making sure things get communicated properly. If you want a satisfied customer base it's probably not a bad idea to have a staff dedicated to just tasking and a staff dedicated to just selling.

    Pros

    interviewers TRIED to ACT polite with an emphasis on TRIED

    Cons

    This company definitely discriminates against people over 40. And if the interview dosent show you that then go in this new store and ask one of the ignorant sales people to help you with anything. They couldn't help themselves out of a rainstorm . And they couldn't sell a heater to an eskimo in the winter time. What idiots

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enlighten yourselves. Stop breaking the labor law about hiring older workers and improve your sales staff. Young is NOT necessarily the best way to go. When the people don't know anything. Customers can spot that a mile away

    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I liked a lot of the people that I worked with. The discount and perks were by far the best part of the whole experience.

    Cons

    Terrible management and scheduling. The company was not very good at listening to your demands as far as days that you cannot work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new managers.
