Great college job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Kennesaw, GAJuly 26, 2014
Pros: worked with my schedule for school. good benefits
Cons: retail hours
Retail is fun, but the revolving door employment is tough.
Staff changed constantly from sales associates to management. Day to day work was what you can expect from a retail location. Holidays were very demanding.

Manipulative, corrupt employer
Certified Fitness Trainer (Former Employee), NCJuly 25, 2014
Pros: 25% discount
Cons: employees are treated as expendable and taken advantage of
No loyalty to employees, nepotism decides promotions, underpaid for expectations, wrong-doing goes unpunished.

Management asks 1 employee to do the work of 3
Store and District Manager promised me a promotion multiple times, never happened.
Managers manipulate employees against each other.

Manager did not discipline an employee who was reported for – more... harassment, drunkenness, aggression against others, and racism.

Laid off all golf pros and fitness trainers without warning regardless of individual performance – less

Decent place to work. Employees kept it fun.
Apparel Lead Supervisor (Current Employee), Plainfield, INJuly 24, 2014
DSG has been good to me while I worked to put myself through college. However, this past year, with all of the budget cuts, they don't give departments on the sales floor enough pay roll to actually take care of customers as well as get their tasks done. Want better customer service stories, but give us less associates to take care of those customers.

Pros: mostly positive environment to work.

He!l On Earth
Apparel Associate (Former Employee), Lansing, MIJuly 18, 2014
Pros: you meet other abused co-workers
Cons: scheduling and bipolar management
Management is bipolar. No really ALL of them are bipolar. DSG insists on requests off being three weeks in advance, but gives the weekly schedule the night or two beforehand. You will get called on your days off to work every week because scheduling is so out of hand. Be prepared to be yelled at for things other associates did, while you were gone, – more... and before you even clock in (and no you are not a manager either.) Also, they are open on Thanksgiving night now... so prepare to give up the last American holiday.

Warehouse Lead shipping Supervisor (Former Employee), East Point, GAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: excellence organization
Cons: director of operation/ hr-dept. need improving
My recommendations would be a good place to work. Everyday a new challenge in a industry that is constantly changing and growing. The training you received is first class and the associates look forward in learning new and better ways to improve their work performance. Your success with this company is in the hands of the associates, how well they can – more... follow policy and procedures determine their future . Great people to work with that knows their job. Do to job turn over make the work challenging for one to do their job effectively.
. Upper management don't understand what problem supervisors,and leads are faced with on the floor, due to the turnover problem. The lack of sensitivity cause an effect in the moral of the team. However attitude will pull anyone through adversity , that what makes the job so rewarding when you can rise above understanding. The attitude on the floor is" Get it Done". teamwork makes the scheme work. When things get difficult co-workers really rally and come together, making the work place enjoyable to work. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Commack, NYJuly 10, 2014
Pros: discounts, good co-workers
Cons: lower starting salary, not many hours
A typical day being a cashier would include counting your till, picking the right register and kicking off the day by greeting your 1st customer. Answering to their questions, asking if they need any additional help. Offering them our store's credit line. And making sure that they leave with a smile on their face.

Hardest part would be working on holidays. – more... Everybody would be at the store, from newborns to great grandmothers. To keep the customer line going would be challenging sometimes. But we at DSG welcome challenges.

Most enjoyable part would be working on the day of important games/matches. Customers, managers would all be hyped and anxious for the results. – less
