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

    Pros

    I was lucky in my store to have an excellent store manager who should have gone on to be a district manager... instead they decided he made too much money for their payroll and found reason to terminate him.

    Cons

    Everything. As a hardlines manager I did my best to take care of my employees but its difficult when upper management makes poor strategic decision after poor strategic decision. There were times around holidays where we could have added 5 hours of payroll and it would have yielded an additional $5,000 in sales easily. The customers were willing to pay, just needed someone to take their money. Instead, they decided to cut people's hours and the people left got to deal with angry (rightfully so) customers who left without making a purchase because they grew tired of waiting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire. For the sake of the future of the company, retire.

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

    Pros

    It's very tidy, neat, and efficient, as far as employment goes. You go in, work, leave. Same in, same out - day after day.

    Cons

    They don't tend to promote from within. They like to hire into leads and managers - you're pretty much stuck in the position that you were hired in. You can navigate between sections, but only at the same tier.
