    I worked at DICK'S Sporting Goods full-time (More than 3 years)


    You get to wear sports clothes to work. You get to see the sale items before anyone else. They is a lot of flexibility to move to the department you want. Different sports departments to work in depending what you're looking for. There was option for over time which was nice.


    No cons this is a great job to have while in school to make some extra cash.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DICK'S Sporting Goods.


    I first met with a DSG recruiter at a school career fair. Then they had engineers visit campus for two 30-45 min in person interviews in a row. They were very friendly and it was overall a good experience.
