I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

As intern, did the work of a full-time employee in merchandising field. Had meaningful project which added value to the company. Opportunities to interact with senior management. Great work/life balance, active employees. Interns are extremely likely to receive full-time offers. The company is growing very aggressibely, so plenty of opportunities for advancement, and people who go through the rotational program (full-time position you are offered after interning) have an advantage in getting these positions. Plus, housing was provided

Cons

Work itself wasn't very rewarding.

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

    Pros

    Decent discounts, flexible hours, great atmosphere and co-workers, plus footwear gets a little spoiled from vendors and reps. Some perks include free shoes and gear, paid race registrations etc.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay, can be tedious and boring at times, but that's all retail. Considering what we get paid, I sometimes think they expect a bit too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My managers are really great, though sometimes they could realize that for 8 dollars an hour, I'm not ecstatic about going above and beyond for the "company".
