    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time for 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 for more than a 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.
