I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time for more than a year

Pros

Flexible hours for young adults in college.
Young staff that is fun to work with.
Nice people to hang out with in and outside of work.

Cons

Not much thought put into the yearly evaluation

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 for 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.
