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

Pros

- Management is understanding of your other priorities/availability
- The environment isn't too serious, people crack jokes, have fun, but also get work done
- Not a difficult job

Cons

- Management isn't very good at communicating with each other or with their employees
- Not that this is a con, but this is retail, so expect nothing more than that
- Management tries to squeeze as much as possible out of you

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate better with each other and your employees so we know what is going on.
Ask your employees for suggestions or feedback so you can understand their issues and how to make their jobs easier and so that they can be more productive.

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people,Customers and Managers, Decent pay if you stay with the company for a while. Very Flexible schedules for hourly employees. Good working experience for college students. Good products discounts and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Holidays take you away from your family. Little room for advancement. Management is rarely higher from within. They cut hours last minute to save money on payroll. If you're a manager you don't get treated well for your work. High turn Over rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be required to actually do every job in the store so they know what they are talking about when the make plans for anything.

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

    Pros

    If you work hard, it will get noticed; most managers I've worked with are friendly and take their jobs seriously.

    Cons

    Pay rates are not the best; benefits for part-time associates are minimal; even full-time employees don't get more than 30 hours a week sometimes; lacking leadership within some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay scale for part-time employees and consistent scheduling, or at least less variation of scheduling from week to week.
