    I worked at Hibbett Sports (More than a year)

    Pros

    After I figured out their way of doing things I actually enjoyed the job. Discount was nice sometimes on already reduced merchandise.

    Cons

    Tried to sue me after I left for competitor who offered me $7000 more per year to start saying I signed a "Non-compete" agreement. Sent a threat letter but in the end did nothing. It would have taken me 14 years working at Hibbett to get that raise what did they expect?? Pay your people properly and then you won't have to worry about stuff like this.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep good people, you have to pay them at some point. Constant revolving door with Asst. Managers due to the fact they only make $9 an hour and still have a boatload of responsibility and are usually the ones in charge in the evenings when the store is at its busiest. Some of them are in charge of Million dollar+ a year stores and all you're paying them is $9.25 an hour??? Think about that

    Pros

    Great company that has a solid training program to set up up for success at this job.

    Cons

    Training varies from store to store and district to district. Expectation level also varies depending on the store or district you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the expectation level for all stores to ensure all stores are at their very best.
