Former Employee - Store Manager  in  Summerville, SC
Former Employee - Store Manager in Summerville, SC

I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time for more than 5 years

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 ManagementAdvice

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!

    Current Employee - Footwear Sales Associate
    Current Employee - Footwear Sales Associate

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good associate discount for everyone employed.

    Cons

    Never seem to have enough payroll to have the proper amount of associates working.
    Footwear shared services is a problem in big stores because of too much floor space to cover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More payroll will help to make more sales and decrease on the amount of loss.
    Not hiring a department lead because it would affect the full-time/part-time ratio is wrong.
