Great store/team environment, but no support from senior leadership, no payroll and no work life balance.

Pros

Great team's in the stores.
Fun store environment.
Great products to sell and share with customers.
Room for advancement, if you are willing to work long hours/extra days.

Cons

No payroll.
Managers expected to spend most of their time completing manual labor because of the above issue.
No culture around work/life balance
No culture around development. Although managers and store manager are expected to develop their team, there is no time to do so.
Senior leadership has no idea of how to train and develop, they only have a "I gotcha you" attitude around their walks. It's all about what is not perfect, when it should be about "how are we going to get this perfect"
Senior leadership can not communicate or relate to people at all and puts forth the impression he could care less about the person/people only that things are completed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ad payroll to complete the expected daily routines/tasks and managers/store managers can actual lead and develop their teams, not completing manual labor.
Change the culture to focus on work/life balance and team development in the stores.
Start a yearly process of a store associate survey so that all associates, managers and store managers have an avenue to communicate what they are experiencing.

    I had a great time while working at Dick's. Retail was tough but we had a good crew to help out with that

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

    Pros

    Worked with great people, great discount, and great clothes. Everyone who worked there was knowledgable about their department.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides would be the customers--as is always an issue when working retail. Sometimes stressful is percentages weren't high enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your workers, you need them as much as they need you.
