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

    Pros

    I loved working here. The environment allowed you to easily relate to people and it was very relaxed. They have excellent core values that, when followed, it ensures you success and opportunity in their company. I left on excellent terms to take care of a sick family and they completely understood and offered me a position, if available, if I wanted to work there again!

    Cons

    I did not have a single bad experience working for Hibbett Sports in Lake Charles Louisiana. Moss Bluff to be exact. I got along with everyone and everyone got along with me.

    I have been working at Hibbett Sports full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the guys I work with. Most of the time, it'll be guys like you.
    The customer service is great.
    Employee discount is outstanding at 25% off your total purchase.
    Flexible hours. Great summer job for younger guys

    Cons

    Pay is horrible.
    The music played throughout the store is horrible. I know it sounds like I'm knit-picking here, but my guys and I literally think corporate has a 13-year-old girl's playlist on shuffle.
    Make a bank deposit after close and off the clock? Really?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Taking the bank deposit at night and off the clock is an awful idea. I heard we were changing that so it's all good. Train head coaches to hire better people rather than worrying about so much employee theft, misuse of coupons, improper discounts, etc. I work with some guys with questionable character and heard stories of some even worse.

    Pros

    Great company with a positive working environment, both friendly and relaxed.

    Cons

    Store operations could benefit by streamlining the promotion and hiring process. Managers can no longer hire or promote sales associates to ac. They have to wait for a dm to interview and decide. This can take weeks, or months, depending upon when the dm decides to visit your store.

    They'd also benefit by updating the employee dress code to reflect current sports fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers control of the hiring and promotion process.

    Pros

    Slow paced, get to spend time with customers, small staff

    Cons

    company is too large and the corporation is in over their head, District Managers and Regional Managers do not spend enough time with managers and corporate politics are too much. Unless you are a manager or high, the pay is not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depend on other managers to help you in sticky situations and advice. Upper management will not help you and play too many games.

    Pros

    Hibbett values and promotes excellent customer service. Great experience. Lovely co-workers.

    Cons

    Low paying. Strict corporate culture, almost too strict. Low hours. Periods of high volume lead to a great deal of work related stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change merchandizing policies to allow more input from individual stores to allow them to cater to the needs of their area. If they could find a way to do this, I'm certain profits would increase.

    Great environment to learn about working with a team of people. Fun atmosphere. Easy to pick up on all sporting equipment. Great incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved this job very much! Always was allowed to pick hours that fit my school schedule. Great environment to be in and thrive in. Learning customer service was a great asset for later jobs in life.
