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

Pros

Proa- they are really hard to come by. They have a standard benefit package (medical and dental is good). SM get stock, but they can't touch it for 3 yrs. bonus

Cons

stores run a low payrolls-managers have to boot strap projects all of the time.
culture of company is thankless at the store level from DM>>>RVP>>>VP.
no one is vested in your development. We have highly skilled mgrs in role for 5-7 years, but they keep being passed up for DM rolls, because the company keeps recruiting from Sears/Kmart. Work/Life balance is a mess. One weekend off a month. You are paid based on a 50 hour work week. most week are 6 days without comp time.
high turnover of mgrs, associates, leads

Advice to Management

As company goes from transforming itself from a retailer to brand, they have rethink a lot of different thnigs. the processes that are getting installed are great, but you have to let the store teams master them first, before add more and more on the plate.

Morale is a 911. its the most thankless organization that I have worked for.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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
