Awful pay, no opportunities, bad store policies, not a high volume store

Assistant Coach (Current Employee)
Corydon, IN

I have been working at Hibbett Sports full-time for more than 3 years

ProsEasy work, friendly customers, co-workers easy to get a long with.

ConsStore policy is terrible, you are underpaid as an Assistant Manager for all the work you do (I was paid 8.25/hr, terrible, right?), not a high volume store, you'd very seldom get a raise, no opportunity to move up, no in store cameras to catch theft,

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Awesome career...very positive and challenging.

Store Manager and District Team Lead (Current Employee)
Washington, MO

I have been working at Hibbett Sports full-time for more than 3 years

ProsHelping little kids is super rewarding! It's not just about meeting your sales goal. It's rewarding to really help sport-minded folks get what they need.

ConsIf I had to say a downside I guess it would be working late nights. With that said...as a good manager you need to see what the environment is like in your store after 6 pm.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

It was not a very good experience at all,the people at Sports Additions were treated very unfairly.

Assistant Coach (Former Employee)
Oxford, AL

I worked at Hibbett Sports full-time for more than a year

ProsHibbetts is a good company when it comes to sporting equipment and shoes

ConsHibbetts does not treat people fairly at all especially if most of the people that work in the store are black.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe managers need to get in trouble as well for not following the rules just as much as the employees. The manager I worked for never followed the rules and I always got in trouble for everything. It was really unfair for the manager never to work their required one Sunday a month and it wasnt fair for the manager to have every weekend off and not having the right amount of hours they were supposed to work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place for experience

Head Coach (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA

I worked at Hibbett Sports

ProsGood benefits and discount. Access to vendor discount programs. Pay is on par or a little above average for management compared to other small retailers.

Conslow hours for PT workers and Set hours for SM makes it hard to plan anything. No real room for growth unless you want to move to another city for a little bit larger store.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind more hours for your PT workers or pay them a little more.
