I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time for less than a year

Pros

Easy job with multiple perks for not having to work very hard. In down time you can hit balls and test out all of the brand new clubs. Pretty laid back managers that are always around if they are needed.

Cons

Having to do other department's jobs while still expected to handle customers in the golf section. The scheduling system changed to a computer system that would schedule me even when I had marked those days as not available to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the scheduling system. Schedule more employees in all of the other sections of the store so the Golf department isn't doing all of their jobs for them.

    It's a retail job. Low stress, low pay. Do it for the discount

    Pros

    easy
    awesome discount, esp when you do the online trainings to learn more about products
    fun social environment
    like-minded people (i like being active, so did most of the people that worked there)

    Cons

    odd hours, shifts all over the place
    always short-staffed
    pay is just awful
    (all of these things are expected in retail, of course)
