Pros

Benefits and discount no other pro, work here and have no life!

Cons

Poor training, horrible dsms who don't offer support, in 7 years with the company I had 3 RVPs, 6 DSMs and 4 district lp supervisors!! He does upper management not see this! The corporate team in Pittsburgh is so disconnected with the reality of what we dealt with at the store level. Sad really, leaving it wide open for competition!

Advice to Management

Your "Take the field" program isn't working when you don't leave Pennslyvania! Need to look hard at your districts and listen to successful store managers or they will continue to leave in droves!

    You meet some great people

    You get taken advantage of greatly, do the work of several people including your managers, and don't get paid enough for all of it.

    From what I understand Dick's was a great employer before they went public, but now they are squeezing their managers.

    Pros

    Good discount. Good product. Attractive stores. Good investment on front end equipment to make cash functions better. Good customer rewards program.

    Cons

    Non-existent corporate training. Terrible working conditions. Treat managers badly and expect them to work many hours doing the jobs of front line employees to save on payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a management training program instead of constantly bringing in manager's from the outside. Develop talent from within.
