Pricing and Signing Co-ordinator (Former Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – February 27, 2017
Management and corporate are not really in tune with grasping talent and using it, instead the more you know the more they do not want you involved. Promotions operate on the 'good-ol-boy' system and age/gender. If you have worked for the K-Mart or Sears Corporations you pretty much have a shoe in. The most enjoyable part of the job is the product that are sold especially if you love the outdoors, however their preference in departments such as camping and fishing is to stereotype and only employ males and tend to drive the females to apparel or the registers.
Ship from Store Lead (Current Employee) – Champaign, IL – February 26, 2017
Management is very flexible with everyone's schedules outside of work. Employee's have fun while diligently working. The hardest part of the job is dealing with upset customers but we do everything we can to make sure we make them satisfied with our company by the time they walk out of the doors.
I had a great time working there with my fellow co-workers and my boss. The one drawback is that my boss's boss strung me along for two weeks promising my work when in reality he had already cut me from the payroll and did not want to tell me. It culminated when I had to find out through one of the other managers what the issue was. He showed me that I had been cut approximately two weeks, and I had at the time of being there swapped shifts with a current employee. It resulted in no one covering our department for 6 hours. Poor upper management, but the department managers are on point and easy to get along with.
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Augusta, GA – February 25, 2017
Typical day would include about 5 to 7 hour shifts either in the morning or evening. While here I have improve my communication organization and team building skills. The workplace culture is very family like although we may all now get alone at tines we still are professional. The hardest thing about my job dealing with disgruntled customers other than that everything is fine the most enjoyable part about my job really getting that satisfaction from helping the customer out.
Sales associate (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – February 24, 2017
When I worked we had horrible management and we were understaffed. I was one of few apparel employees. They were really strict on recovering the store. I would say only take this job if you need a lot of hours. It is hard to get people to work for you because no one wants to come in. Also they really push the score card onto customers and constantly remind you about it. Really annoying! Also really lame discount and you can't even use it on clearance. Most of the time clearance discount is a better deal.
Footwear Associate (Current Employee) – Lake Grove, NY – February 24, 2017
I have been at dicks for almost 2 years as a footwear associate and I am grateful I have gotten the opportunity to work my there as my first job for 2 years. I learned so much such as everything that has to do with working retail like costumer service, getting familiar with product and learning to work with others. the management has been nothing but spectacular being able to work with them. they work their hardest to keep the place immaculate. there Is so many little things besides having to help costumers and such. in my opinion getting paid minimum wage at dicks was unfair due to the amount of work having to put in.
Team Sports Sales Associate/Sales Support (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – February 23, 2017
The job requires non-stop work. You'll be constantly moving for the duration of your shift, and will often help in other departments. But the management is exceptional and flexible with the work schedule of a student
I work in Lodge. The most enjoyable part of the job is the rest of the staff. My responsibilities are stocking fishing/hunting and selling guns. The hardest part of the job is making sure all the paperwork is done correctly. I enjoy working with them. Management is okay, and the pay is okay for a part time job.
Bicycle Technician (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – February 23, 2017
This was just a seasonal job for me, but I really do think highly of the company, just recently purchased a pair of running shoes from a Dick's Sporting Goods, and I'm always impressed with the store regardless of which location it happens to be, this is one of things I find impressive about the franchise, and currently residing in Tucson, I would say that the stores in Arizona appear to be one, highly presentable, and two, I assume, must be well managed, but there again, this doesn't surprise considering my background knowledge working at a Dick's Sporting Good's, I am thankful for the opportunity I had.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – February 21, 2017
Working here was alright, nothing special. The cashier's job is taken too intense. The managers aren't very helpful, there are a lot of things to learn with the coupons but you aren't really taught so you get yelled at when things are done right.
The store is an overall fun and laid back place to work.
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Morristown, TN – February 20, 2017
The store is a fast paced environment at times but when committed, it is so rewarding. Having a well rounded knowledge about the products that are available in store is a key factor to being a good employee.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Frisco, TX – February 19, 2017
Honestly don't remember too much about it. It was a summer job for me and it paid fairly well for retail. I did work in a mall in an upper-class city that had a lot of entitled people so that made it more difficult than the job otherwise would've been. Don't have a lot of good or bad things to say.
