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

Pros

Starting wage is decent Doesn't ask for too much experience to get hired there Does great with transferring people to and from other stores They do yearly reviews on employees and you get a raise depending on performance

Cons

Management is very male oriented, at least at my location The company is tough on their employees(including management) and asks a lot from them, which can be stressful sometimes A lot of favoritism But most of this is typical in retail positions

    Pros

    Good people working in the store.

    Cons

    Loss Prevention officers, District Managers, Regional Managers are all communist. If you intend on working at Dick's just know you'll always have someone from loss prevention watching over you on camera and keeping track of every transaction a cashier makes. I saw them fire their employees for purchasing item's with your parents credit card or using a brothers scorecard.

    Advice to Management

    Warn employees that they'll get fired for these things. None of these policies are in the employee handbook. Thank god I don't work for this communist ran corporation anymore.

    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 Management

    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
