I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Starting pay was a $1.50 above minimum. Good management training program results in well managed stores. Advancement potential. Overall fun, laid back environment.

Cons

Usually workers are fresh out of high school, and can be a little immature/petty/dramatic. This varies from store to store, but at one point our trucks were coming in at midnight... overnight stocking shifts were brutal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut the elementary-school-style "incentive" programs, and actually offer bonuses or cash kick-backs for employees who excel at whatever customer service metric you are trying to drive that month. I don't need a sticker.
