I have been working at DICK'S Sporting Goods part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good people,Customers and Managers, Decent pay if you stay with the company for a while. Very Flexible schedules for hourly employees. Good working experience for college students. Good products discounts and benefits are decent.

Cons

Holidays take you away from your family. Little room for advancement. Management is rarely higher from within. They cut hours last minute to save money on payroll. If you're a manager you don't get treated well for your work. High turn Over rates.

Advice to Management

Management should be required to actually do every job in the store so they know what they are talking about when the make plans for anything.

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

    Pros

    -good part time job
    - flexible hours and schedules
    - employee discount program acceptable
    - coworkers generally pleasant

    Cons

    - management that makes it very apparent the only thing they are concerned with is bottom line
    - incredibly high turnover rate
    - miscommunication between management and staff lead to scheduling disasters
    - payroll cuts from higher management frequently make store incredibly understaffed. Staff is then asked to "do the impossible" with no time to do it
    - no room for internal advancement

    Advice to Management

    - identify good employees in the company and reward them with promotions instead of hiring from outside the company
    - increase payroll budgets. many complaints about the store arise from "no one to help" or "store was a mess," both of which could be solved with more associates available
