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

Pros

Because of turnover, hard work is recognized and promoted. Decent discount, not great. You're selling sporting goods, so if you're in a department you love, it's pretty fun. I started out in golf and it was awesome. I just talked about golf all day. Other departments, not so much.

Cons

Too much top down thinking. But if you're going to go to a corporation, you need to expect it, so just roll with it, keep your head down, and work hard.

Advice to Management

Nothing on a store level. They don't make decisions.

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

    Pros

    Team atmosphere, lots of customer interaction(never the same ? twice), customer-focused.

    Cons

    Never sure how many hours you'll get as PT, sometimes 32+ one wk, 18 the next wk.
    Does not pay for experience and education!!!!
    Too many tasks, too few hours and associates to complete in time frame.
    You will get paid the same working your tail off as your fellow associate who does just enough not to get fired.

    Advice to Management

    to keep your bright stars, PAY THEM what they are worth! I've had 3 job offers with better pay I turned down b/c, for some strange reason, I have a loyalty to DSG. I am not sure if advancement positions actually exist except when someone leaves and you were the 2nd choice when the job came open the first time(doesn't make you feel real valuable).
