You are selling fun
GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) –  United StatesJune 19, 2017
Fast-paced always changing environment. There is always an area of the store that is in season and it makes the job challenging. The holiday's were stressful.

Its okay
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, NJ 07095June 19, 2017
This is a good short term job but not a long term job. After a while they don't give you enough hours and they don't really seem to care. Management is horrible.
Pros
everyone is friendly
Cons
Management is horrible.

typical work day
Apparel Associate (Former Employee) –  Daly City, CAJune 19, 2017
Depending on your department there will be a lot to do. the job can be fun as long as you know how to multitask. You have to be quick on your toes depending on how big the store is.
Pros
free lunch sometimes
Cons
short breaks, a lot of work less pay

Retail Just Wasn't Up My Ally
Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  Springfield, VAJune 19, 2017
Could not handle dealing with several different departments needs for such a low salary. Definitely dont recommend because i had my hours shaved for the dumbest reason; i.e: closing the store needed to take +3 hours after close to return the store to normal.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
very cutthroat with hours

Manager (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJune 19, 2017
What's that! You give everything you have and they take everything you have. Don't look to have a social life if you work for DSG! Do everything with the absolute least amount.

Footwear Associate (Former Employee) –  Colerain, OHJune 18, 2017
My typical day was helping customers with what shoe they would like to try on. Get the customer the shoe and give them my opinion when asked. My other co-workers weren't as hard working as I. So I was doing most of the work in a day. I learned that sometimes you just have to put up with terrible co-workers. The management was okay, it wasn't the best.
Pros
long lunch breaks
Cons
Not a good discount, terrible co-workers

Great company, but lacks work / life balance and consistency
Corporate Associate (Former Employee) –  Coraopolis, PAJune 16, 2017
Depending on what department/team you work with, experiences will differ. Work is fast paced. Many departments are very top heavy; appears to be too many Managers, Directors and VP's, creating tension on cross-departmental projects when decisions need to be made quickly. Excessive meetings lead to inconsistent planning and confusion when aligning expectations. Some departments insist on operating in a silo, while other business partners depend on transparency to stay on target to achieve project goals. This hampers productivity and, in some cases, causes delays due to inefficient communication and unwillingness to "show each others hand". During onboarding, emphasis is placed on a healthy work/life balance. However, again, depending on department, this has the potential to disappear quickly. Long hours, overwhelming meeting calendars and heavy workloads become the "normal expectation", making successful results rarely recognized by leadership.

Quick paced and fun environment
Footwear Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mentor, OHJune 16, 2017
For $8.50 an hour, they do expect quite a bit. Nonetheless, extremely enjoyable environment and very professional. You will enjoy any department you apply for.
Cons
No benefits, 30 minute unpaid breaks, High consumer traffic with low associate income.

Retail in flux
Director (Former Employee) –  Coraopolis, PAJune 15, 2017
Much like the balance of B&M retail, DKS is trying to find its way in the new Ecomm boom. There are a lot of competitors out there trying to "steal their lunch" right now. Will be interesting to see how they and other retailer fair in coming years.

It is an ok place to work
Footwear Associate (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 14, 2017
It's a means to an end. Job has limited growth opportunities, and does not pay well. If it is a summer job or extra income, it could be a good fit. I would recommend only a few people for a career there.

Great place to work if you are looking for a relaxing job with not too much of demand. Management was decent, and great perks of working in store if you are into sports.

Okay if you can deal with customer service
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, VAJune 13, 2017
Not a terrible place to work, no real full time workers unless you've been there years. Easy to advance if you are a good worker. Downside is the customer is always right even when they are wrong, screaming, or threatening you. SO if you can deal with customer service in the face of rude customers it is a nice place to work. Must say majority f customers are pleasant though. Pay is barely above minimum, no ral benefits, and they will terminate you immediately for unionizing.
Pros
nice bosses, employee discount, stable hours
Cons
crazy customers, yelling customers, poor pay

Fun and interactive workcrew
Footware Associate (Current Employee) –  Metairie, LAJune 13, 2017
It was overall a very good experience to work at Dick's Sporting Goods. I learned about the different types of shoes, and what types of arch support and stability different people need. Co-workers are very friendly, and management always tries to listen and work with their employees. The hardest part of working here is late at night before closure when you have to deal with the young kids who come in and tear up the store before closing time.
Pros
Co-workers became like family
Cons
Sometimes customers get emotional and agitated when we don't have their shoe sizes in stock.
