I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

They know how they want their stores to operate. It's idiot proof. If you're willing to learn they can teach you.

Cons

Not adequately staffed. Chances to move up seem slim. Pay is good starting out, but a decent raise is rare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to keep productive associates there should be enough hours available to those who are hardworking. The main complaint I hear is that there aren't enough associates to help all of the customers.

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

    Pros

    The people are nice for the most part. A way to buy under armour at a discount. You can wear workout clothes to work.

    Cons

    The company doesn't seem to like to promote from within. Their return policy is not static and varies from situation to situation. You have to sometimes do projects more than once because they change their minds too many times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within more. Require drug testing for hiring. Don't be afraid to say no to a customer.

    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.
