Former Employee - Merchandise Intern in Pittsburgh, PA

I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Working out of the HQ office was a wonderful experience and a great work environment. People are generally very positive and fun to work with. They love to live the brand and working out during lunch hour is totally normal and encouraged.

Cons

Compensation was low starting out. The only room for advancement is within the Pittsburgh office. Few opportunities elsewhere. Poor graduate program sponsorship.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase compensation and rewards for employees. You have a great office mentality set up but you lose talent on the fundamentals of how much money employees bring home at the end of the day. Was the lowest paid salary when looking at offers out of college.

    Pros

    Nothing. Just the fact I was hired.

    Cons

    Management flirting, very unprofessional, unorganized, turnover very high, not enough workers or hours, it was a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that is right for the job. Know your employees strengths.

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you ONLY care about buying the newest sports product, then this is the place for you.....However for those who are looking for a more "Grown Up" opportunity (i.e. advancement), this isn't the job for you.

    Cons

    For Sales Managers, this is simply a Job NOT a CAREER, there is no training program for advancement at any level, To advance you must simply "get in good" with a store manager or DM. There's no structure with regard to development. Your training is only 1-2 weeks if your lucky and that is simply sitting in front of a computer. Store Managers have no interest in advancing anyone and are extremely Self Serving and arrogant, having only their best interest at heart, yet will expect Sales Managers to miss time with their family in order to fit their whims. Sales managers are expected to work (now) 12 hour shifts daily, and come in on off days. Sales Managers do more Cashier and stock associate work that actually management work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a training program for those who are sacrificing their family and time. STOP using the cliche' "Well that's retail" and "You chose retail". As these represent an environment of POOR Upper MANAGEMENT, poor effort from upper management, and a passive attitude with regard to those who you employ.
