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

    Pros

    Good discounts if you get to use the 3point5 website. Best (most comfortable) dress code ever- yoga pants, athletic shirts, and tennis shoes. Can be fun sometimes if you like your coworkers.

    Cons

    Black Friday is awful. No one was allowed to take off, which meant most of college kids didn't get to go home for thanksgiving. You had to work a 12 shift. My feet were literally throbbing after black friday. It gets annoying picking up after customers. You might spend an hour refolding an entire table of tshirts and some adult will go over and mess them all up. Sometimes they just throw stuff on the ground right in front of you. One time someone pooped in the dressing room. I'm serious. Working retail can really make you dislike people sometimes.

    "Company is Behind"

    Pros

    The company sells sports, so most of the customers will be passionate about the products Dicks carries.
    The discount is also good, however most of the good items (guns and golf) are excluded in most discount, coupon, and kickback.
    Bonus structure is good as long as you make all your metrics.

    Cons

    As a company, they are about 5-10 years behind the industry with any logistical or operational process. The replenishment process is not adequate to support stores who who exceed $10-$20mil.
    The company leaves a lot of money on the table by not being able to efficiently manage logistics. Sales floor associates are completing double work because of an inconsistent planogram/replenishment that is not currently working.

    Communication is a disaster. There is far too much direction from corporate pulling the management in 10 different directions. There needs to be little change and a clear cut policy/procedure when change is necessary.

    Stores need an HR manager. Way too many issues in every store I've been a part of.

    Implement shelve label strips and location systems. Back room needs location systems as well

    Advice to Management

    Redo entire logistical process. Stop blind receiving and implement label strips and product location software.
    This will help a lot of issues.

    Stop building new stores and fix the logistical problems at the existing ones.
