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

Pros

Decent discount
Easy job
Liked my co-workers

Cons

Most of the people I worked with were between the ages of 19-24 and either were going to school or had more than one job. Managers treated employees as if Dick's Sporting Goods was the only way of life and you RARELY get a weekend off. Hours are typical long retail hours during holiday seasons. Manager of my store implemented a rule that between the months of November-January you could not request off any days. Considering it was a part-time, low-pay retail job I found this ridiculous.

Maybe it was just my particular store; I'm sure other locations are run better than this one.

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

    Pros

    Dick's offers a flexible schedule and a solid employee discount. In addition it's a relatively low pressure atmosphere that's ideal for a student or someone working multiple jobs.

    Cons

    Dick's offers low pay to hourly associates, pretty close to minimum wage actually. In addition hours are limited and shifts are completely random for part timers.

    Advice to Management

    Forget the in store games and contests.....give us some REAL incentives
