I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They give you some freedom to do your own thing, but creativity is really taken away most of the time.

Cons

There isnt enough freedom given to the employees for them to really sell. They have such a strict environment.

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

    Pros

    -If you're someone who wants a job in retail without doing too much, you will enjoy working here
    -Meet nice people
    -Decent discount on items (especially nice if you're into sports)

    Cons

    -Dealing with immature people who blame others if and when they make a simple mistake
    -Most customers will always act rudely towards you
    -It's another retail store, so even if you feel you belong there because it's a sporting goods store, you still have to put up with the managers/co-workers there who make too much of a big deal out of small, little things that happen in running the store, just like at any retail job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back, realize that the people working for the store, yourself included, is working there to make an income. This retail job does not define their life and it should not. Also realize that not everybody working for you is out to hurt the business. If someone is not doing something the way you'd like them to, talk about it with them (calmly and in a reasonable manner) and don't make them feel like they've made a catastrophic error for something that is not a big a deal as you want to make it.
