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

Pros

Each associate contributes to a department. That way we cover all the departments throughout the day. We have a walkie talkie system which is fantastic because we are able to ask questions, get answers, and just overall communication with each other without having to be in the same area. Most of our associates are also trained in other departments so if we need backup in a certain department, then we can have help from other departments. If you enjoys sports and participating in a team environment, Dick's is the place for you. We work together just like a team. Dick's is also very flexible when scheduling which works nice with my coaching schedule.

Cons

My store specifically was going through some management changes at the time of my hire so I was not trained in many areas. Luckily, with the help of many of my co-workers, it was a fairly easy adjustment for me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure there are enough employees working in each department so that some people can work on projects/training while others focus on customer service.
