    Pros

    Good pay for a high school/ college student and flexible hours. Can be a fun atmosphere depending on what manager you end up with at the time.

    Cons

    Volatile and childish managers looking out for themselves. Expected to show up early and work later than your schedule says you are. Other employees call out all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Look fr better managers that are willing to lead by example instead of hiding in the back office and yell at employees for their own failings.

    Pros

    Ok pay, opportunity for advancement, the staff before upper management has a comradery.

    Cons

    Management trips over district, store, and internal memos. The Store and District managers do not enjoy criticism and if you do will be targeted. No respect for availability and recognized disdain for anyone with aspirations outside the company from management. If management violate policy it's ok, but if you do god help you.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own rules and promises, if you are going to ignore everything you hire people try not to be so obvious on how much you ignore you own rules. also ignore your Bs mandate of putting the company over the employees, because that never leads to any problems ever.

    Pros

    Not very demanding most of the year until the holidays,

    Cons

    Don't work with schedule if you go too school, will schedule you regardless of availability, high employer turnover, low raises.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your lower level employees, and maybe they will stay.

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

    Pros

    401k match
    small discount with them, but better discount thru manufacturers if you know how to look

    Cons

    Hours were terrible. They would schedule you to close then open the next day without any care in the world. Leave at 10 30am, get in at 7 30am
    They never put enough people on the floor to save on monthly payroll- you are ALWAYS too busy and never able to focus on any given task

    Advice to Management

    Try to give your people more the 2 days they get off together instead of here and there. 2 days off in a row allows for relaxing and life even if it is a Tues/Weds
    Put enough people on the floor for the customers to get helped AND the freight to get put out.

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

    Pros

    Not a bad company at all, most people who work for Dicks are very great workers and extremely dedicated for the most part. The discount isn't bad (much less than most companies I've worked for though.) The company has honestly all the best brands, their apparel is awesome. Corporate actually rewards employees that hit goals (like small bonuses) which I really appreciated.

    The hours are very flexible which is awesome for college students and people working two jobs.

    Cons

    But this company has hired a few incompetent general managers, ones who have given blatant preferential treatment to employees that fit into their social hierarchy.

     In my time there I was exceeding goals and outperforming everyone in my department (and my region) but did not receive any compensation from my GM for doing so, on the contrary, I was treated even worst because I was outperforming others (found that to be very sadistic and self-sabotaging ) which is why I left. I didn't graduate public school to work somewhere that has the same social structure as my freshmen homeroom class in high school.

    Advice to Management

    If someone it making metrics which is making your store look good AND helping you get your yearly bonuses, not to mention helping your company grow and make more money, you should promote those employees or at the very least not treat them like garbage.

    I'm pretty sure your DM's want you to hold on to employees that are getting results, not the ones you like because you think they are cool enough to join your treehouse club

    this is why store some stores in the area have such horrible turnover and are losing great employees.
