    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods

    Pros

    It is a fun atmosphere. Generally you'll enjoy the people you work with and the work itself is not all that hard.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth and many of the higher manager have little knowledge of the sporting goods industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they would do better if they focused more on what the customer wanted instead of corporate goals, which sometimes cause problems.

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods

    Pros

    easy work (hang and fold clothes)
    able to move up fast (hourly to salary in a year)
    communication between associates and corporate quick and efficient (TEAM)
    growing company
    fight to keep good employees

    Cons

    uniforms are dull
    it's retail, so you're going to have long days during the holidays
    too much payroll is wasted on prepping for visits from corporate, if gameplans were kept up to date and other policies were fully enforced all the time it would take less to prepare for a visit from an exec and would save the company money and allow for the payroll to be more wisely spent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    love for management and golf pros to go back to old dress code
    customers respond better to someone walking up in suit pants and a collared button down shirt as opposed to a ratty polo and khakis
