    Pros

    You Can Gain Knowledge & Quick Way To Get A "Lil" $

    Cons

    Company Is Behind: Doesn't Value The Store Managers: Don't Wanna Pay Store Managers What They Deserve For The Work They Do & The Service Standards And ETC That They Expect: Its DSM That Play Dirty Games To Get Back At Managers Who Won't Stand For BS or Be Their "Puppett": You Report Someone of Higher Power Then They Will Try To Plot On You To Get You Gone/ It's Distric Sales Mangers Who Will Have Favorites & Vouch For Others & Do Who They Least Like Dirty...They Brain Wash The DSM & Ap & ETC That They Forget Who They Are & Where They Come From...Its A Good Place To Gain Knowledge & Experience, I Wouldn't Recommend Getting Into Management If So No Higher Than Assistant Too Much BS You Have To Deal With & Worry About, Use It To Your Advantage Because The Mindset For This "Private Company" Is EVERYONE IS REPLACEBALE" Which Anyone Can Be But That Shouldn't Be The Mindset You Can Have A Hardworker Who Is Committed And Then Someone Who Isn't Committed That's Just Their For A Paycheck They Will Value Them A Lot More & Glorify Them...Best Thing Avoid This Company Too Many Politics And Some Racial Issues Also

    Advice to Management

    Start Putting The Right People With Good Hearts In Position, Value Employees Who Put They Time & Made Sacrifices To Work For This Company. It Honestly Need To Put "Younger" People In The Corporate Side Because They Wanna Be "Hip" To What's Hot & Wanna Understand The "Culture" But Don't Honestly Know Anything About It. Value Hard Working Employees/Put The Right People In Position/Needs Inprovement In Policies

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Promotes from within the company
    Continual training available
    Opportunity to "build" resume

    Cons

    Expectation/Responsibility outweighs compensation.
    Raises in pay are virtually unheard of, unless prompted by a change in job title.
    Overall experience depends, in large part, on each individual supervisor.
    In majority, employees that strive to achieve more are usually paid the same or even less, than those who simply just show up.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those employees, whom go over and above the minimum requirements.
    Don't allow those, whom are most disconnected (at the store level), have the only say in decision-making.

    Pros

    You get a discount i guess

    Cons

    Low pay... No help from upper level... buyers will come visit a store ask what you need and not listen... even regional managers that will ask what you are ask for then tell you your wrong and you dont need that or just talk over you.... overall one of the worst places to be a manager.... Oh and they will tell you you will get raises based on performance but not one manager got a raise last year even if your store was $300,000 over goal

    Advice to Management

    Get out asap... your worth more then they will ever pay
