I have been working at DICK'S Sporting Goods full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Work with things that you love, selling to people who have similar interest. Comfortable uniform guidelines.

Cons

Erratic scheduling, difficult tasking, ever-changing company policies.

Advice to Management

Communication through hierarchy (RVP->DM->SM->DM->Lead->Assoc is broken. Due to this, there is little to no accountability on the part of managers when things are done incorrectly. This leads to dissatisfied employees and an incredible turn over rate. Improving the flow of information would increase tasking productivity and selling revenues as employees would be better equipped for tasks, and thus given more time to assist and sell to customers. Also, better knowledge of stores selling patterns and it's customers would be nice. To give such limited payroll to stores that are not mall/shopping center locations hamstrings employees during open hours. Customers rarely want to "tire kick."
