    Pros

    Dicks Sporting Goods sells fun! As corny as that sounds, its true. Usually the customers who shop there are nice and just need some help outfitting either themselves or their children. It really depends on the location as to how you are treated as an employee. Some stores have a great work environment while others are lacking.

    Cons

    The managers (who care about what they do and their stores) are over worked. Working 60-70 hours a week because of budget cuts, monthes on end has to throw up a red flag somewhere! While managers are given 2 weeks of vacation to start with the company has many black out periods where you can not take vacation. Working 7day work weeks with crazy hours (15+ hour shifts) is tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to controll payroll. Stores cant function at the level they need to when you have no associates on the floor because you had to cut them.

    Pros

    Love working around the sports and outdoor equipment that I use. Employees work together well and have a good team feel in most cases. Good benefits packages. Store management for the most part seems to care about the hourly employees.

    Cons

    Lack of ability for career advancement. Takes to long to get promoted to manager and the amount of external hires for manager is very deflating for those aspiring to move. Payroll cutting takes place to much to the point that it affects the moral of all employees, stretches departments to thin and leaves full time employees with part time hours almost. If you make it to an hourly leadership position you are severely underpaid for the work that you do.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your hourly employees. Pay them what they deserve and don't cut hours so severely. It would definitely improve the morale of both store employees and store management. Get back to the focus on rewarding hardworking employees by promoting from within instead of looking outside for manager openings.
