    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.

    Pros

    Its a fun place to work! I owe the best of my management training to them. If you really take the time to do the work you will learn so much from their training courses.

    Cons

    You can not leave the sales floor unattended at any point only 2 employees with 2 customers needing shoes one has to wait an employee in the bathroom while you need to grab a shoe customer has to wait you can see how this rule can put you in awkward situations but other than that its a great place to work

    -management was nice

    Generally speaking it was a nice job. I had fun working their. Great sales experience to have under my belt

    Cons

    Other employees

    Some people didn't take the job seriously of slacked off way too much. It was not the best thing in the world cleaning up after certain people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees in check. I had never a problem with the management. I liked their way of doing thing. Some of the management in the store deserve a lot of praise for there work with the resources available.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, good co-workers, good benefits, flexible hours, and they have the newest and latest products in stock. Hibbett's also has great sales and promotions.

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons or negative thoughts about the company. If anything an employee 50% off weekend once or twice a year would be nice

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good conduct and maybe an employee 50% off weekend one or twice a year would be good
