    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods

    Pros

    Cool sports environment for sports fan to work in. Fun helping customers.

    Cons

    The manager is kind of an ass, expects a lot fast. I was untrained and throw in and was expected to know everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train a little more before you put your employees out there.

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

    Pros

    Great selection, People, Discount, Easy Job All Around

    Cons

    Typical retail cons and pay is extremely low. If you are looking to move up, you are just playing the waiting game. Personally, I have a bachelors degree and have been told by DMs and RVPs that I have managed some of the best departments they have ever seen. Unfortunately, you have to wait till something opens, and then you are still waiting on five or six other "dominoes" to fall into place.
