Good Job
Bike Tech (Former Employee), Austin, TXOctober 6, 2014
Pros: fun and encouraging
Cons: scheduling and low staff
Had a lot of fun with customers and getting them the right bike! Also bike repairs were a good challenge to over come in different ways. Good communication threw the store. Hard to keep up during holidays but team work and a good attitude is the best solution.

Very poorly managed store
Consumer Service Manager (Former Employee), Springfield, ILOctober 6, 2014
Pros: sports retailer with good products
Cons: poor compensation and work atmosphere
Most of the employees and managers were great to work with, but the overall management of our individual store was very unorganized. There is almost no upward mobility in this company in my experience.

No instructution.
Bike Tech (Former Employee), Salem, OROctober 6, 2014
The management here was very laid back. Almost too laid back. At times I would complete all my daily task and begin to look for more just to keep myself occupied as the clock ticked away. I ran myself out of work, and eventually was transferred to the morning shift, unloading the truck. When I applied, I made sure to note on my application that I was – more... unable to do heavy lifting (100+lbs) on my left shoulder. They also didn't seem to mind that I lived almost 10 miles away and didn't drive to work, so it was a near impossible defeat when I would should up first every "truck day" at 6am. They also forget that some people know how to do things better then others, and moved a person who had no experience or knowledge of what they were doing into the department I was hired for, to cover my position while I was doing the truck. – less

I enjoyed working with the products but management left a lot to be desired.
Sales/ customer service (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, NJOctober 5, 2014
I enjoyed working at Dick's because I loved the things I sold. I'm an avid sportsman, so selling products for fishing, hunting, and camping really worked well with me. However, the job got really old because of all of the busywork the management had me perform. I constantly found myself rearranging and moving products around at the managers discretion – more... for no real purpose but to kill time. – less

A job where everyone works together to satisfy guests.
Footwear Specialist (Current Employee), Chesterfield, MIOctober 3, 2014
Pros: 25% discount on most merchandise, flexible hours
Cons: no real healthcare, the pay for middle management is very low
A typical day at works starts with looking over my footwear deck, filling any holes on the floor and engaging customers to make sure they are making the right choices for their feet and getting what they want. If there is some down time I might stock the shelves, organize the back room or catch up on some training. Management for the most part works – more... with your school schedules, they seem to genuinely care about your overall well being. My coworkers are amazing they all work hard, they are smart and really focus as a team to provide excellent customer service. the hardest part of the job is probably dealing with cleanup after messy customers, in a way you an underpaid baby-sitter/housekeeper. The best part of the job is the people, the friends I have made that make the day worth working. – less

A Good First Job
Price and Signage Coordinator/Cashier (Current Employee), Henderson, NVOctober 2, 2014
Pros: good people, relaxed environment, comfortable work load
Cons: micromanaging, part-time, no room for grow
This was my first place of employment. I was able to learn cash handling skills. There wasn't much training. It's a sink or swim environment, but my coworkers are friendly and made it a comfortable place to be. I eventually promoted to my current position where I spend most of my time doing price audits, price changes, verifying proper signage for our – more... ads, and packing items for shipping. I enjoy the people, but find my job to be monotonous. – less

Golf at Dick's Sporting Goods
Golf & Racquet Sports Department Manager (Former Employee), WisconsinOctober 2, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, reasonable pay
Cons: physically demanding, no chance of advancement
This job position no longer exists with the company as of July, 2014. I enjoyed my time at Dick's for the most part. Good co-workers, friendly customers, and a sense of teamwork were the highlights.

This was a physically demanding job.... Quite a bit of heavy lifting (20-40lbs).... and on your feet for 8+ hours a day on hard surfaces.

Managers were – more... reasonable even though turnover was extremely high..... as it is in all retail. The PGA position was the best position in the store. – less

On a daily basis at Dicks Sporting Goods
Lead Scan Coordinator (Current Employee), Apex, NcOctober 1, 2014
Pros: communication, good co-worker relationships
Cons: no set hours
On a daily basis at Dicks Sporting Goods, I work side by side with a great group of co-workers. Everyone gets along really well and goes above and beyond to help each other. We all wear headsets and communication over the headsets is great. Everyone can cover any department if needed and management is great about helping as much as possible (i.e. All – more... questions are answered promptly, they take phone calls with customers, run the registers when the lines in the store get backed up). The only downfall of dicks sporting goods is uneven hours. Even as full time, you may get 40 hours one week and 30 the next. – less

Poor managment, bad pay and little hours
Operations (Former Employee), Harrisonburg, VASeptember 30, 2014
I started working there for $8.00 an hour unloading trucks from 3am - 11am. After 2 years I had only been gotten a pay raise of 42 cents. Before the healthcare act I was able to get 40 hrs a week but after that I was lucky to get 20. Meanwhile they hired other people to work in my section and started them off making at least $9 an hour. I hurt my back – more... there and they ignored my drs restrictions for 5 months until it became so bad that I had to have surgery. I would not reccommend anyone to work for them. – less

Bicycle Technician (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FLSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, copacetic management, amicable environment
Cons: inconsistent schedule, minimal advancement opportunities
Since starting my employment with Dick's Sporting Goods in May 2013, I have become strongly developed my skills in customer service, cash handling, time management, multitasking, and organization. The first task I finish after clocking in is recovering my department. Upon completion of the recovery I either build or repair whatever bikes are in line – more... while interacting with customers in the store. If there are no builds or repairs to complete I either assist other coworkers in their departments or do a task assigned to me by a manager. My managers are just as eager to lend me a hand when I get in the weeds which makes for a great, friendly workplace. Most of my coworkers are a direct reflection of management so going to Dick's Sporting Goods each day isn't seen as a chore but more of a chance to engage customers, exhort coworkers, and learn something new. The most difficult part of being an employee of Dick's Sporting Goods has to be competing with other stores and figuring out how to better ourselves as a team and individual each shift. The days I enjoy most are the ones where I get to build a few bikes, teach someone how to ride a bike, then sell one or two combined with as many accessories as needed and extra insurance to protect the customer and get my name on a board for providing excellent customer service. – less

Sales Associate, Myrtle Beach (Current Employee), myrtle beachSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: great environment, awesome employees and management
Cons: could get paid more but still not bad for pt
This isn't a career for me but going to school, it is one of the best places to work. Everyone there looks out for each other and management doesn't look down on you or want you to mess up they actually help you.

Front end supervisor (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 22, 2014
It's a fun place to work. You get to meet new people everyday and share new experiences with your co workers. As a supervisor they look up to you to be a leader. You also have to guide your cashiers to right productive stage to produce for the company.
