I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great fun work environment. Decent discount. Comfortable attire to wear to work.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations with the amount of payroll given to get task done properly. Nor is payroll given to train new associates properly.

Advice to Management

If the top priority is taking care of the customer, give the payroll so that the customer can be properly taken care of.

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

    Pros

    Employees, discount, atmosphere at times

    Cons

    Constant shifting, hiring outside the company, no room for advancement w/o going to another store making 9 an hr

    Advice to Management

    Pay better more incentives. Contests went down from $75 to $50 to now $25 dollars since I have gotten their. Treating all of your employees like 28 hour part time employees won't keep us with no room to advance unless we move to another store for a measly dollar. Got hired for holiday and have to wait a whole YEAR AND A HALF for a review. Constant shift in management as well as it being terrible. No commission.

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

    Pros

    Decent discount Easy job Liked my co-workers

    Cons

    Most of the people I worked with were between the ages of 19-24 and either were going to school or had more than one job. Managers treated employees as if Dick's Sporting Goods was the only way of life and you RARELY get a weekend off. Hours are typical long retail hours during holiday seasons. Manager of my store implemented a rule that between the months of November-January you could not request off any days. Considering it was a part-time, low-pay retail job I found this ridiculous. Maybe it was just my particular store; I'm sure other locations are run better than this one.
