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

    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good job to have any type of job during this economy. The job was easy to perform and the other cashiers were friendly.

    Cons

    Asked to push loyalty cards constantly, monotonous job. Basically, just standing around doing nothing, but straightening up the display area and cashiering some times.

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

    Pros

    Having a job, Team environment, growth opps if you brown nose the right ppl. Coachable employees at my store, TV's on the sales floor

    Cons

    As company goes from transforming itself from a retailer to brand, they have rethink a lot of different thnigs. the processes that are getting installed are great, but you have to let the store teams master them first, before add more and more on the plate.

    Morale is a 911. its the most thankless organization that I have worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow your own talent and promote within instead of hiring random SM's from other companies when you have men and women busting their humps night and day coming in on days off just to get looked over.
