    OK job, more interested in getting credit cards than customer support.

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

    Pros

    Most employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    You are supposed to quit talking to a customer you are helping to answer phone pages, customers get annoyed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in the customers shoes. Have more help at check-out lines and most departments. you want to be a higher-scale company, behave like one, not like Walmart!

    Pros

    Always something new, and love being round sports atmosphere. Enjoy helping customers and it can
    drive a competitive edge in you. Descent atmosphere. Competitive driven workforce, plenty of chances for advancement.....

    Cons

    How employees are treated by some staff. They company does not care who make more and in what position. If you have been in the company for a good amount of time, good luck getting promotions, you have a better chance moving up faster if you come in from another store. Some positions are paid more than others, even though the person with higher pay may not actually have a higher title in the store......some places a lodge lead make more than a key & coded Freight Flow Lead(basically a manager) and does all the work of 4-5 associates in the store and makes less(lol) and this is supposed to be the next position b4 management. They corp or districts very rarely ask employees whats going on in their very own company...it would be interesting if they did an Undercover Boss lol, to see what some employees are like as well as some managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to really know your stores inside & out.....even from the regular associates. Take care of the people that actually do a good job in your stores. Sometimes managers arent able to do their own job and certain associates get it done and the manager takes all the credit.
