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

Pros

-good part time job
- flexible hours and schedules
- employee discount program acceptable
- coworkers generally pleasant

Cons

- management that makes it very apparent the only thing they are concerned with is bottom line
- incredibly high turnover rate
- miscommunication between management and staff lead to scheduling disasters
- payroll cuts from higher management frequently make store incredibly understaffed. Staff is then asked to "do the impossible" with no time to do it
- no room for internal advancement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- identify good employees in the company and reward them with promotions instead of hiring from outside the company
- increase payroll budgets. many complaints about the store arise from "no one to help" or "store was a mess," both of which could be solved with more associates available

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

    Pros

    It usually gave decent brakes.

    Cons

    The breaks were made much shorter, they make you their slave. Too much work for too little pay. Too many children went there as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to focus on the bigger picture.
