    I worked at Hibbett Sports part-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Hibbett Sports part-time (More than a year)

    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

    I worked at Hibbett Sports part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good employee atmosphere, good discount.

    Cons

    management does not listen to employees suggestions or recommendations. cares more about preventing theft than they do about maintaining good customer service. Does not utilize a functional method of shipping and ordering of products for customers.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of the employees that work in your stores on a daily basis. They are the ones who are with the customers and know what the people want. Your ways are outdated and do not meet the customers needs. The only reason the company is still making money is because in many places Hibbett operates, they are one of the only sporting stores, if not the only one.

    I worked at Hibbett Sports full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Benefits for full time
    -Fast promotions
    -Great Products that make sales easy
    -Contests/Spiffs to win free stuff
    -Fun environment
    -Loyal customers
    -Updated technology, new locate system

    Cons

    -Terrible training
    - Sexual discrimination when firing. ** worked for the company for 4 years! ** was let go because "was dating an employee." ** in fact was not. *** fired *** and offered the AC the position and of course he didn't take it. The AC quit because who would want to work for a company that treated long term dedicated employees that way. The assistant told me he asked the statement, "If this were me and **** would this be happening?" **** was another assistant there that was Male. The terminator responded, "No probably not." Therefore ** was wrongly terminated. ** put all of my time into that business. ** followed every rule to the T. Made sure everything ** had to do was done perfectly. ** asked anytime ** needed help. ** HATE getting in trouble. It's a huge fear of mine so to be treated unfairly for something ** didn't do was purely sad and very disrespectful. Although everything happens for a reason and ** will have a better job and future without this unfair company, it still hurts my feelings deeply.
    -Hard to hire trustworthy employees
    -Poor application pool
    -Upper management will drag out firing someone. If you have someone that clearly is performing poorly- you're suppose to give them time and chance after chance after chance. If I have a store to run, I need people that are going to show up for work and help improve the company.
    -Low pay unless you're a store manager or higher. This makes for a high turn over rate.
    -You don't get paid time and a half for working holidays
    - Although this store wasn't open thanksgiving, most are. I think that it absolutely ridiculous. That's a holiday to be spent with your family

    Advice to Management

    - Improve Communication
    - Update training
    - Have trust/faith in your dedicated employees
