    Pros

    If you like sports and want a job for a little extra money this is great for you.

    Cons

    Holidays can be busy at times like everywhere else. It's aggravating keeping everything organized when people just throw items anywhere.

    Pros

    Everything is great about the company. The people I work with are great, the retail style is awesome, I had great hours, and there was plenty of career advancement opportunity

    Cons

    They pay very very very poorly. I did work that most people would get paid probably $6-$8/hr more for. Made the job unbearable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell your employees that they are valuable, then pay them like they aren't. We know that you don't actually believe we are valuable because of how you pay us.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working as an Assistant Manager at Hibbett Sports. Everyday had something different

    Cons

    You would have better reliable employees if pay was better. Managers also is only $9.5 0 hr. A Receptionist gets better han that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay to employees

    Pros

    The only real pro is your discount. The pay is bad the work is bad. You could sit there a full 8 hours and not have 1 customer

    Cons

    Pay, management, overall just a mediocre ran company, they want you to sell and push products but off ZERO commission.

    I worked at Hibbett Sports full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount
    Opportunity to move up in stores
    Starter or first time job only
    Hours are decent

    Cons

    Forced to sell certain products
    Horrible upper management
    Extremely underpaid
    Unrealistic sales goals
    Unruly customers
    Technology used in stores is from the early 90's making it difficult to complete sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more of a voice to those making the sales. Step into this century and bring up the technology so you can compete with big box stores.

    Pros

    The best thing about this company is that there is opportunity everywhere to move into management on a store level. And that education isn't a sole or even major determining factor. If you can perform, you will have an opportunity if you want.

    Cons

    Compared to other stores in the same category, pay is probably lacking across the board. This goes for management to team players.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!
