Customer focused company that struggles with finding managers with strong managerial skills.

I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You get to interact with and meet a lot of cool people by way of the merchandise that is sold there, you get a decent discount on great products, if you are a hard worker it is noticed by your co workers and select managers

Cons

Managers come and go often, sometimes leaving the store in disarray. There's a lot of "hour watching," and ill-budgeting that causes them to cut hours every week or go over budget and have no hours left at the end of the month. Hiring young managers is a great thing to work with the mostly young employees, but sometimes these young managers really have no idea what they're doing, or they don't act like a manager, they act like a normal kid employee instead of taking their manager role seriously.

    Pros

    Surrounded by sporting goods, relatively laid back, works well around the school schedule

    Cons

    No commission, minimal/ nonexistant incentive to push yourself or the company, corporate policies and guidelines are a drag if you're a nonconformist and or absent minded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step it up some form of commission or at least more frequent competitions for not only individuals but whole stores create a mutually enjoyable and attainable goal to push sales
