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.

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relatively flexible, depending on who your store manager is. Compensation is competitive, benefits are decent. If you work in a store that has historically produced good metrics, chances are you will be left to do your work and not bothered by upper management much.

    Cons

    Upper management (outside of the stores) only see a snapshot of what is happening. They really only care about numbers (results) and often fail to give you applicable advice to accomplish tasks that seem insurmountable. Bonuses are weighted on certain metrics - overall sales performance counts, but it is certainly not the driving factor behind your structure (customer surveys are!).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out some of the micro-managing. Give more flexibility to the stores. Appreciate the constraints of productivity when management's hands are tied (i.e. - when you remove payroll from the stores, don't expect your management teams to feel obligated to pick up all the slack). Actually try to develop relationships with sales managers and sales leaders - if they respect you, they will work all the harder to produce for you!
