    Pretty good for a retail job.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Cookeville, TN

    ProsPretty easy work, working with good people, flexible hours most of the time, small store, customers were usually friendly.

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

    Assistant Coach (Current Employee) Corydon, IN

    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

    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

    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.
