    Pros

    They hire people that are motivated and interested in the departments they are going to work in.
    You can be promoted quickly if a position becomes available.
    Large network of locations nationwide if transferring is an interest.
    They are quick to embrace new technology.
    Better than average pay.

    Cons

    Promotions can be slow as people tend to stay in their place.
    Too much emphasis on incentive based customer surveys, they provide zero value.
    As they branch out into specialty stores, Dicks Sports stores are becoming watered down.
