Negative Outlook
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

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    If you work hard, it will get noticed; most managers I've worked with are friendly and take their jobs seriously.

    Cons

    Pay rates are not the best; benefits for part-time associates are minimal; even full-time employees don't get more than 30 hours a week sometimes; lacking leadership within some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay scale for part-time employees and consistent scheduling, or at least less variation of scheduling from week to week.
