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.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at DICK'S Sporting Goods part-time (More than a year)


    Hours are very flexible
    Managers are approachable and easy to talk to, always willing to answer any question
    Easy to get time off when needed, even at the last minute (like for a last minute doctor's appointment)
    Relaxed environment
    Not overly demanding when it comes to pushing the rewards card (just a simple mention of it is plenty)


    A bit more training could help
    A new walkie system could definitely help
    Computers can be very slow at times, which doesn't help when helping customers with online orders

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more training, new walkies, and new computers. All three would go a long way.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2018.


    Wonderful candidate experience, and paid attention to the details. They were thorough but not repetitive with their questions. The recruiter was very thoughtful and kept me informed during the process.
