    I worked at Hibbett Sports part-time

    Pros

    The 25% off employee discount is nice. The job is a good place to learn and grow basic sales techniques.

    Cons

    Store prices can be pretty expensive. The shoe room can be tricky at times and get disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have a good manager and ask questions in your interview. Ask about what they do to facilitate good work conditions and if there are sales incentives for employees. An organized shoe room also saves you a lot of time and struggle during busy hours.

  7. "This company does not want to hire experienced people."

    Pros

    Their are none. Fringe business in a low income area, and they don't hire experienced people.

    Cons

    Qualified people are not wanted.

    Advice to Management

    You may want to hire people with actual experience in the Sporting Goods industry. I applied and was not even given consideration. Good luck with your selections. Hire young kids, black most likely and pay them nothing. Solid business plan...
