    Pros

    They will work around your schedules, Great environment, Fun work place.

    Cons

    Sometimes business is slow and you have nothing to do, Other major shoe companies or other Hibbett stores close by have a better selection so you have to send your customers elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration that some employees do have a family, it's not all about the HC! Hire people that will actually come to work & that fits the image to work for a sporting goods store! Promote within & train your staff better! Some are great at their job while others are just lazy! Great company but some of the management choices reflects bad on the company itself.

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

    Pros

    Easy work, great employee discount, affordable benefits

    Cons

    Countless hours wasted by store staff and upper management, 50+ hour work weeks for 40 hours worth of work, lazy upper management, poor company organization, ZERO work life balance

    Advice to Management

    You are not Dik's Sporting Goods, you are not Academy, and you never will be.If you continue to try and compete with them and implement methods you see them doing, you will be out of business in 10 years. Pay your employees more and treat them better. It's 2017, minimum wage doesn't cut it anymore. Stop making your managers work 50 hours a week and every holiday. They have families too.

    Pros

    Fairly easy job, benefits, breaks are given, 25% discount.

    Cons

    terrible pay, favoritism is shown, standing for long periods of times, if you're not a head coach you should give up being free on the weekends, stores are limited the number of hours they can give so employees don't get a lot of hours.

    Advice to Management
