Pros

Benefits but other than that none.

Cons

I was offered a job at Hibbett Sports as I had years of retail experience under my belt. I thought that because of this they would offer me around 8.00-9.00 an hour. Keeping in mind that I know from friends that Dicks Sporting Goods in my area starts off at 8.25 and Sports Authority a little higher with experience. Hibbett only wanted to pay me minimum wage and refused to negotiate. They should of told me this during the interview instead of waiting until they decided to hire me as I thought they were going to pay me the amount I put on my application. He said 8.00 is around how much the assistant mangers get paid and if that is so I feel so bad for them cause they are being robbed. Retail is hard and no one in retail should make only minimum wage. That is wrong and shame on Hibbetts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees in that they are the ones who retain customers and stop paying them so cheap. Paying your employees such a low wage does not motivate them to do their job. Poor motivation leads to slacking and slacking leads to less customers and less customers leads to Hibbetts going bankrubt. Look at Circuit City and Goody's Family Clothing.

    Pros

    Well you don't have to dress up, easy going you meet a lot of people.

    Cons

    Manager are never where they should,DM sometime stand behind you. Staff is always talking to friends or never know going on. People get promotion because they are best friends with upper management. Very unfair place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorite to staff just because he need them to do your job and cover for you.
