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

    Pros

    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)

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Easy to request days off
    Flexible scheduling
    Fun if you enjoy talking to people
    Can rack up the hours if wanted
    Good management (in my case)
    If you drink at least a little bit of the kool-aid, you'll have a good time here
    Ability to advance if you're ambitious
    Associate discount on most items

    Cons

    Very little incentive to perform well
    Your experience will vary widely based upon the shift managers you have
    Lower than average pay
    Often need to pick up the slack of other associates
    Embarrassingly slow computers make it hard to quickly help customers
    Could use better technical training (not just 1-2 minute videos)
    My feet hurt after my shift most days

    Advice to Management

    Computer systems need to be upgraded for speed, badly
    Stop holding onto employees that bring bad vibes
    Need more ways to boost employee morale
