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

Pros

Relatively flexible, depending on who your store manager is. Compensation is competitive, benefits are decent. If you work in a store that has historically produced good metrics, chances are you will be left to do your work and not bothered by upper management much.

Cons

Upper management (outside of the stores) only see a snapshot of what is happening. They really only care about numbers (results) and often fail to give you applicable advice to accomplish tasks that seem insurmountable. Bonuses are weighted on certain metrics - overall sales performance counts, but it is certainly not the driving factor behind your structure (customer surveys are!).

Advice to Management

Cut out some of the micro-managing. Give more flexibility to the stores. Appreciate the constraints of productivity when management's hands are tied (i.e. - when you remove payroll from the stores, don't expect your management teams to feel obligated to pick up all the slack). Actually try to develop relationships with sales managers and sales leaders - if they respect you, they will work all the harder to produce for you!

    I worked at DICK'S Sporting Goods as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good job to have any type of job during this economy. The job was easy to perform and the other cashiers were friendly.

    Cons

    Asked to push loyalty cards constantly, monotonous job. Basically, just standing around doing nothing, but straightening up the display area and cashiering some times.

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

    Pros

    The people are nice for the most part. A way to buy under armour at a discount. You can wear workout clothes to work.

    Cons

    The company doesn't seem to like to promote from within. Their return policy is not static and varies from situation to situation. You have to sometimes do projects more than once because they change their minds too many times.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within more. Require drug testing for hiring. Don't be afraid to say no to a customer.
