Pros

You get to wear gym shoes, that's about it.

Cons

Horrible management - they are only there to work you so they can make a bonus and move up in the company. They do not care if you have prior experience or a college degree, all they want is someone that can help make sales goals and work horrible hours. Hourly rate is poor, turnover rate is high, and hours are cut constantly, not guaranteeing the hours you were told at your interview.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating the associates like drones, and more like people. And don't lie about hours when you interview people - Dick's will cut hours before they cut prices, leaving customers frustrated because there is no help on the floor and associates working multiple departments since there isn't enough coverage.

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

    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (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.
