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

Pros

Better than Wal-Mart, built in good social environment.

Cons

Your job experience is generally at the mercy of the area that you are working in. Different problems depending on whether you are in a rich or poor neighborhood. As is common in most retail positions, management could take or leave you as the turn over rate is generally so high.

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

    Pros

    Store discount, Online discounts, You meet some very nice people,

    Working here part time can point you in two directions: Either, you want to become part of management and move very slowly up the line, or you can get a reality check and find out that you are being paid nothing to work horrible hours and you will continue your career search elsewhere.

    Cons

    Pay, Hours, Weekends/Holidays, People will always complain about something, Many times you will find that your supervisors are less qualified and competent than you might be (that's just retail for you), There is always some type of disconnect among the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking you know everything, take advice or appreciate your employees. Chances are they have more experience than you do in most areas.

    Ex: It is hard to take someone seriously who has never worked in sporting goods but managed a grocery store. That type of management isn't the same.

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

    Pros

    4 raises your first year
    3 for the next 2 years
    then 1 yearly evaluation raise every year as long as you're there
    4 10 hour work days for 2nd shift so you always have a 3 day weekend

    Cons

    When the warehouse is slow they ask people if they want to go home. You can stay the whole shift but it is tempting to go, and can be boring if you stay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get people trained on more equipment sooner
