    I have been working at DICK'S Sporting Goods part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great atmosphere. My current manager Thomas Sears is very welcoming and very encouraging. He is stern when needed, but he strongly believes in taking care of the customer to the best of your ability.

    Cons

    Some employees are not as motivated as others, sometimes to the point of being lazy and showing up consistenty late for work. Some people also can call off work without consequence. My feeling is we're sometimes too lenient and some employees will take advantage of that.

    Advice to Management

    We can be stricter in our discipline and still be a welcoming store for new employees. Enforcing basic rules can ensure an even greater set of employees.

    I have been working at DICK'S Sporting Goods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy my job here, working in footwear you get a fair amount of traffic on a daily basis. They are extremely flexible and work with your schedule. It is a great job to have when you are in college (like I am). Fun and easy retail job. Plus you don't have to wear a uniform you just wear typical athletic or workout clothes.

    Cons

    Not really much room for growth. I say that and I was promoted to running specialist within 6 months of being their. The pay could also be a little better, but its not terrible.

    Advice to Management

    I love my management staff so I can't think of any type of advice that I would give to them. They are great to be around and very easy going.

    Pros

    Would I consider retail to be the dream job? Absolutely not (black friday mayhem is not for the faint of heart). But I really enjoyed my time at Dicks Sporting Goods. Our managers were awesome at setting goals for the day and reasonable ways to reach them.

    Cons

    I worked specifically in apparel. Each season they would send out what they called game plans or how the section was to look. Only 1 problem, it shows the set up for all stores regardless of how large or tiny your store is. Most of the displays my store would not have simply due to lack of supply. The most irritating part was it seemed like every week they would send out revisions. Simply put, some higher up could not do their job right the first time so everyone else underneath suffers. As if our day was not busy enough taking care of customers and keeping the store clean, the added hassle of a useless move.

    Pros

    The sales associate discount was nice because I enjoyed purchasing items in store at a discounted rate. It is fun to work at a store where you sell products that you yourself would buy.

    Cons

    I was only a part-time associate and do not feel I can give input in this portion of the review.

    Not enough hours right now
