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

Pros

The they pretty flexible with your schedule. Most of the people you work with are college aged and get along with each other. If you enjoy talking to people then you get to do that all day.

Cons

The management would schedule you on how your scorecard percentage was. If you had a lot of kids come in and just buy candy you will probably wont get many hours the following week. There wasn't a chance to advance.

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

    Pros

    They do have great product.

    Cons

    Task load and standards are too complex. Quality of life for employees doesn't exist. Academy has us running scared so it is just getting worse. Morale in the majority of markets is very low. Every DM I know of is scared of finding out that "the jet" has landed in their market. Twelve DMs and at least two RVPs have been let go in the last six months and it has created a terrible culture of instability.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the Academy panic. Firing every DM or RVP that is getting beaten up by them isn't the answer. You are just eroding the loyalty of your people. Maybe you ought to look at Academy's simple merchandising strategy and learn something. We can't help customers when we are constantly moving everything in the store.
