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

Pros

Flexible hours for young adults in college.
Young staff that is fun to work with.
Nice people to hang out with in and outside of work.

Cons

Not much thought put into the yearly evaluation

Advice to Management

Take advantage of having young ambitious employees. The opportunity is there. The management training program should be promoted to every young kid and should constantly be looked at as a staple of the companies benefit and opportunity.

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

    Pros

    Doing something i love talking to customers about the products i live and use.

    for the most part good co-works and managers depending on location.

    Cons

    cutting of hours, no pay roll, Under paid for the amount of work/ coverage for the lodge department. basically you have to be the person to run roughly 25% of the store and typically you are the only one working the floor due to payroll. Lodge could be made up into 5 separate departments depending on season. and removing products for a PR stunt and making us have to deal with all the angry customers cause you promised something you could not deliver. lots of pushing of credit cards, also never have enough product to do things they ask.

    Advice to Management

    ask for more pay roll, make sure we are getting in product when we need it. more hours. better pay.

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

    Pros

    They know how they want their stores to operate. It's idiot proof. If you're willing to learn they can teach you.

    Cons

    Not adequately staffed. Chances to move up seem slim. Pay is good starting out, but a decent raise is rare.

    Advice to Management

    In order to keep productive associates there should be enough hours available to those who are hardworking. The main complaint I hear is that there aren't enough associates to help all of the customers.
