Pros: Not Sure If There Were Any
Cons: Low Discount, Management, Lack of GOOD Employees, Management, New Dress Code, Management!
A typical day at work is doing your job plus everyone else's. There's always someone who calls out of work or just doesn't show up (and I mean this happens every day), and management just expects you to pick up their slack. You're stuck at the registers, usually alone, and no one on the floor answers you when you call for back up or ask them a question on the radio.
I learned that you can't rely on anyone there; it's every man for themselves. The new managers are not ideal at all, and the district manager is a cold-hearted person. "The customer is always right" rule definitely applies. Whenever there is an issue with a price or something that a customer wants, management doesn't try to resolve it the right way. They simply just tell the cashier to adjust the price or "take care of the customer", regardless of the price adjustment or the problem.
The co-workers use to be great. But once new management took over the majority of them left and found better opportunities. The new batch of employees do not fit the Dick's Sporting Goods brand at all.
Not a job for someone who is trying to save up money. You won't get enough hours, especially if you're in school. They'll only schedule you once a week when you're availability is 5 days a week. There are no benefits at all! You may get an opportunity to move up in the company, but it's rare! There are better jobs out there!
