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

Pros

Because of turnover, hard work is recognized and promoted. Decent discount, not great. You're selling sporting goods, so if you're in a department you love, it's pretty fun. I started out in golf and it was awesome. I just talked about golf all day. Other departments, not so much.

Cons

Too much top down thinking. But if you're going to go to a corporation, you need to expect it, so just roll with it, keep your head down, and work hard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing on a store level. They don't make decisions.

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

    Pros

    The pros are almost too many to count. On one hand i worked in about 4 departments. They emphasize customer service, and they are hell bent on making that happen. Also they are very detail oriented. Cross your "T's" and dot your I's with these people. Overall a great company to work for.

    Cons

    The holiday rush as to be expected drains on the staff and you start to see its life drain from the workforce. Doesnt feel like a career opportunity but if you have a degree you can move up. Other than that it really depends on the location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that i could give. To be honest they have the right idea on how to run their business. However the execution could be better. Overall 4/5
