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

Pros

The new building and it's amenities are fantasic. The company has a great thing going with it's over all management and and direction. The benefits are fantastic. Health insurance is cheap, but great coverage, the bonuses are fantastic and average 15-20% (for all levels of employment and is based on company performance).

Cons

Software development is lacking and has only one director that has ever worked with Software before. The software development department refuses to follow any industry best practices because their mantra is "We are not IT, we sell gym shorts."

Minor gripe - Business casual dress code (IE No Jeans).

Advice to Management

Hire some management and staff that have developed or worked with software prior to coming to the company. Quit moving folks from the business (IE Sales and Marketing) into software development, especially the management staff.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Work was easy and paid training. I wish it lasted longer than holiday time, but that is OK.

    Cons

    Temp job. Called almost everyday to fill in for lazy employees, just those people kept their jobs after holidays.

    Pros

    Your team will become more like a family. The management staff gave the associates a sense of ownership of their various departments.

    Cons

    Their were times when scheduling became an issue. The staff wasn't very big, so there were instances when the management would ask associates to work double shifts when needed.
