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

Pros

Fair pay for retail. Good discount through vendors. All associates treated pretty equally. Nice benefits if you qualified for them.

Cons

The schedule was constantly changing at the last minute. Communication from management down was completely lacking and often times people got written up for things they had never been trained on. Most often things didn't get done on time or incorrectly because payroll had to be cut and there simply wasn't enough time to both satisfy customers and work on tasks. Just like most retail- it was a gossip mill.

Advice to Management

Make more time for training and making sure things get communicated properly. If you want a satisfied customer base it's probably not a bad idea to have a staff dedicated to just tasking and a staff dedicated to just selling.

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

    Pros

    Good discount. Flexible shifts. Company discounts at other stores affiliated with Dick's Sporting Goods. During holidays, coupons for brand name apparel.

    Cons

    Store is understaffed. Work most of shift solo, even during holidays. Have to pull associates from other departments to cover for understaffed, leaving more areas uncovered.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people, not objects

    I have been working at DICK'S Sporting Goods full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and programs for employees such as charity sales, blue call, pysch, etc

    Cons

    Management oversee the employees with the likeness of a controlled institution. The management have a regimen which consists of standing at the top of conveyors in shifts and surveilling the employees while they work, follow employees around the warehouse in an intimidating way even though the warehouse is completely wired with cameras, and favortism and corruption is so deeply embedded in the culture from management, that it makes working at a great company more than challenging. I am not ranting or venting, you are welcome to come and become apart of us and see firsthand.

    Advice to Management

    It is not so much the workers, but management's behavior needs to be reassessed by a third party. They have training classes so that is not working effectively. Therefore, I suggest a thorough dig and cut of the bad seeds to resolve these issues.
