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

Pros

Better than Wal-Mart, built in good social environment.

Cons

Your job experience is generally at the mercy of the area that you are working in. Different problems depending on whether you are in a rich or poor neighborhood. As is common in most retail positions, management could take or leave you as the turn over rate is generally so high.

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

    Pros

    Store discount, Online discounts, You meet some very nice people,

    Working here part time can point you in two directions: Either, you want to become part of management and move very slowly up the line, or you can get a reality check and find out that you are being paid nothing to work horrible hours and you will continue your career search elsewhere.

    Cons

    Pay, Hours, Weekends/Holidays, People will always complain about something, Many times you will find that your supervisors are less qualified and competent than you might be (that's just retail for you), There is always some type of disconnect among the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking you know everything, take advice or appreciate your employees. Chances are they have more experience than you do in most areas.

    Ex: It is hard to take someone seriously who has never worked in sporting goods but managed a grocery store. That type of management isn't the same.

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

    Pros

    Not goin to be laid off because the HR department doesnt exist.

    Cons

    This company doesn't even understand how the stores are run from an operational and customer service standpoint. Tasked to drive service and cut payroll weekly!! How can you serve customers when managers ring registers because the company wont pay for cashiers. There is a huge disconnect between what actually can be acomplished and what is demanded from the corporate office. There is no way that this company is going to sustain growth when other companies are actually customer focused and not 90% operationally focused and 10% customer focused. I often walk into other big box retailers and see three times more associates in there stores to help where as in my store I have 3-4 in the whole store how can you honsetly think you are serving the customer whis this type of staffing. The problems that this company faces are right in front of its nose but it is blind to the fact that it needs to deal with them by actually dedicating resources to it!!!

    Advice to Management

    Walk into your stores and look at the task you demand of the assocaites and realize that based on the dollars spent on payroll there is not a chance to think about customers!!! Who drives our business customers!! yet you will not focus on teaching and training because you wil not focus on staffing issues that a rampant in the district!!!
