Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take advantage of having young ambitious employees. The opportunity is there. The management training program should be promoted to every young kid and should constantly be looked at as a staple of the companies benefit and opportunity.

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Doing something i love talking to customers about the products i live and use.

    for the most part good co-works and managers depending on location.

    Cons

    cutting of hours, no pay roll, Under paid for the amount of work/ coverage for the lodge department. basically you have to be the person to run roughly 25% of the store and typically you are the only one working the floor due to payroll. Lodge could be made up into 5 separate departments depending on season. and removing products for a PR stunt and making us have to deal with all the angry customers cause you promised something you could not deliver. lots of pushing of credit cards, also never have enough product to do things they ask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ask for more pay roll, make sure we are getting in product when we need it. more hours. better pay.

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

    Pros

    Discount on products but it varies based on the product. Flexible with school and second jobs. Ability to buy certain things directly from manufacturers at cost.

    Cons

    The company is unsure which direction it wants to go. Payroll based on sales goal but hours cut even though blowing sales away. Lots of confusion at the top. Lack of promotion opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what direction the company needs to go.
