    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

  2. Helpful (1)

    Great job to get you through high school or college

    Pros

    Flexibility, discount, easy work, 50% manufacturer discount once per pay, sometimes you get to work with cool people.

    Cons

    Managers typically are clueless; management calls you frequently to fill a shift, stays late past closing, managers hate their jobs, poor attitude all around,

    Advice to Management

    Hire shift managers and store managers that actually have a passion for sports. I have two managers at my store who couldn't tell the difference between a tennis racquets and a racquet ball racquet. Honestly, they cannot tell the difference between a hybrid bicycle and a mountain bike. A running shoe and a training shoe. If Dick's Sporting Goods really truly want to grow and thrive as a company, look at your lower management. I have worked at Dick's Sporting Goods for 5+ years and when you sort the list by employee ID number, I am first on the list. Not only do I constantly provide information to other employees, handle customers appropriately, and know how to work every position like a champ, I do it without complaint; unlike the current managers. Your training does not work.
