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

Pros

Starting pay was a $1.50 above minimum. Good management training program results in well managed stores. Advancement potential. Overall fun, laid back environment.

Cons

Usually workers are fresh out of high school, and can be a little immature/petty/dramatic. This varies from store to store, but at one point our trucks were coming in at midnight... overnight stocking shifts were brutal.

Advice to Management

Cut the elementary-school-style "incentive" programs, and actually offer bonuses or cash kick-backs for employees who excel at whatever customer service metric you are trying to drive that month. I don't need a sticker.

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

    Pros

    Awesome employees, and work environment

    Cons

    micro-managed, and can be difficult to work around your schedule from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    compensation comes in more forms than wait for corporate to give you a review, and a 7cent raise, a simple pat on the back would be nice as well.

    Pros

    Good team, cool people to work with and management are there to help you out.

    Cons

    Coupon system isn't the best as there are plenty of restrictions. Customers blame the cashiers for these instances
