CULTURE & VALUES

At DICK’S Sporting Goods, each member of our winning team is connected through a common belief and passion for our Core Values:

  • Driven – We play to win.
  • Committed – We believe in relentless improvement.
  • Skilled – We are focused, and precise.
  • Passionate – We live for our sport, our team, and our community.

At DICK’S, we believe in a better world through sports. This belief has been at the heart of our winning culture since the very beginning.

Richard Stack, founder of DICK’S Sporting Goods, believed that sports play a vital role in teaching our children fundamental values like a strong work ethic, teamwork and good sportsmanship. And, he understood that supporting the organizations that make youth sports possible is the best way to promote those values.

Today, that legacy continues, with DICK’S Sporting Goods strongly supporting youth sports in the communities where we live, work and play.

This year through its Community Youth Sports Program, DICK’S Sporting Goods will donate thousands of coach’s equipment kits to youth sports organizations – reaching over a million young athletes.

Our Commitment to Health & Wellness
As a leader in the sports and fitness business, we help our customers enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle. DICK’S Sporting Goods wants to encourage and empower our associates to do the same. That’s why we build partnerships with our associates through communications and programs that provide all the resources and information needed to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.

Our Wellness Initiative is an important component in this education. Through mailings, lunch & learns, guest speakers, and on- and off-site lifestyle programs, we’re not only creating health awareness, we’re helping associates maintain greater control of their out-of-pocket healthcare expenses and creating an improved sense of well-being.


Sports Matter is an initiative to raise awareness and address the growing issue of underfunded youth athletics nationwide. It is the signature program of The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation.

Youth sports participation is declining and $3.5 billion was cut from youth sports programs in recent years. It's estimated that 27% of US public high schools will not have ANY sports by 2020.

DICK'S Sporting Goods and the DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation believe sports truly matter because they make people better.

    I worked at DICK'S Sporting Goods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working in footwear was one of the best parts of the store because it wasn't as hectic as the other departments.

    Cons

    At times it seemed like there weren't enough workers to get to each customer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods.

    Interview

    Was flown out to Pittsburgh for a final interview with two individuals. Met for probably an hour before flying back home. The position turned out to be really just a sales position that they try to position as "marketing".

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of small talk about general sports news. I had previously worked in sports but wasn't actively following the teams they were discussing, so I was honest.   Answer Question
