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

Pros

Starting wage is decent
Doesn't ask for too much experience to get hired there
Does great with transferring people to and from other stores
They do yearly reviews on employees and you get a raise depending on performance

Cons

Management is very male oriented, at least at my location
The company is tough on their employees(including management) and asks a lot from them, which can be stressful sometimes
A lot of favoritism
But most of this is typical in retail positions

Other Employee Reviews for DICK'S Sporting Goods

  1. "Communist Party"

    Pros

    Good people working in the store.

    Cons

    Loss Prevention officers, District Managers, Regional Managers are all communist. If you intend on working at Dick's just know you'll always have someone from loss prevention watching over you on camera and keeping track of every transaction a cashier makes. I saw them fire their employees for purchasing item's with your parents credit card or using a brothers scorecard.

    Advice to Management

    Warn employees that they'll get fired for these things. None of these policies are in the employee handbook. Thank god I don't work for this communist ran corporation anymore.

    Pros

    You get to wear gym shoes, that's about it.

    Cons

    Horrible management - they are only there to work you so they can make a bonus and move up in the company. They do not care if you have prior experience or a college degree, all they want is someone that can help make sales goals and work horrible hours. Hourly rate is poor, turnover rate is high, and hours are cut constantly, not guaranteeing the hours you were told at your interview.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating the associates like drones, and more like people. And don't lie about hours when you interview people - Dick's will cut hours before they cut prices, leaving customers frustrated because there is no help on the floor and associates working multiple departments since there isn't enough coverage.
