    Get to work with sports gear and equipment

    Advice to Management

    Have a police escort you with the money bag to the bank.

    I have been working at Hibbett Sports full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    25% employee discount on all items, including clearance. Good starter job if you're just trying to get through high school, or if you're just a college student looking for extra change. No place to be in search of a career.

    Cons

    Long work week with inconsistent hours, you rarely get consecutive days off in a row. You have to work 1 12 hour shift a week. You don't get proper lunch breaks. Little to no enthusiasm to be your best because you won't be compensated or recognized for it. No ways to make extra money, no commission, no bonus checks. You'll work most weekends. There is no chance of hoping to maintain another job due to the inconsistency of the schedule. This job takes away the most valuable thing you have... Your time. They will force you to transfer stores and make you commute to your new work place without offering any raise or compensation. I've had 7 years of retail experience prior to employment and I was only offered $11 per hour even though I felt $15 was fair.

    Pros

    Clean/safe working environment, paid well, and room for advancement.

    Upper management wasn't that involved, and the register system was way outdated

    Pros

    Very flexible with schedule and the management really does care about about cooperating with their employee's. A friendly environment, with low stress. Managers train their new employee's very well.

    Cons

    The pay is not the greatest, but then again as a normal part-time sales associate i wasn't expecting a lot. The hours are not very consistent, sometimes I could 30 and then the next week 11.

    Advice to Management

    All around great management that works well with their employees and try's their best to help ensure employee and customer satisfaction. The only problem advice I could see is being more consistent with the scheduling.

    Pros

    Good work environment wanted to move up and was helped to do so. Got a job off as a store manager but didn't want to move that far.

    Cons

    Small company not much room to move up after Store Manager

    Advice to Management

    Not too much. Just be a key part in building up your team. It'll help them feel noticed and like they're moving forward while giving you better trained workers.

    Pros

    get to learn about selling sports equipment. meet new people. learn about different types of shoes.

    Cons

    All the employees and managers are two-faced. The store manager has favors for looks and not achievements. it is a terrible company to work for. You can try your hardest to make the company better and they don't care. the company is trying to hire a lot of new young kids 18-20 to take over when the older people that have been there for a long time are being let go.

    Advice to Management

    stop trying to be like every other sports store
