Sales associate assisting customers (Former Employee) –  Highland, INJanuary 5, 2018
Overall dick's was a typical retail job. I front/faced product and did a lot of ringing at the register. The overall company environment wasn't bad. Got pretty decent discounts on the over priced product.
Pros
discounts
Cons

Shifting Management Decisions Resulting in Poor Environment
Footwear Specialist (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJanuary 5, 2018
Initially working at Dick's Sporting Goods I was attending school and was assured a flexible schedule to attend classes and study for exams. I was also happy with the atmosphere, as the employees appeared upbeat and ready to help. After working at Dick's for about a year, management decisions started shifting, and a competitive aspect became clear within middle management - all of which resulted in a stressful environment which also started encouraging pushing sales which did not always make sense for the customer. Work hours also became unpredictable, with 40 hours/week or more suddenly becoming requested after several weeks of only working 8 or less hours/week. Pay was also very set at minimum (or very near) wage with better performance resulting in "gold stars" as opposed to higher wages.

Feels you're focusing on the manger's duties delegated to you while sacrificing your own duties in your department then being thrown under the bus when your area is audited.

Fun workplace
Lodge Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHJanuary 4, 2018
I worked in the Lodge department. I enjoyed the department lead and all of the managers. I learned how to conduct a federal background check. The most enjoyable part was talking to customers about hunting or shooting.
Pros
Flexible Scheduling

Sadness and capitulation to defeat
Lodge Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Short Pump, VAJanuary 3, 2018
Retail with little caring, customers are fleeced as much as possible while being on hold for long periods of time. Sadly the credit card sales are more important than the actual customer!
Pros
Nice customers
Cons
pay, management, advanctment, duties

Footwear Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Ontario, OHJanuary 3, 2018
Good place to work. If no customers are in your area you work on organizing the area. Everything is very relaxed, but can get very busy depending on the time of year.

Bad Leadership
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJanuary 3, 2018
Bad leadership and employees were not given the alloted break times. Also poor use of supplies and utilities at the location. Company standards are held to a very liberal view and is a joke for a sporting goods store.

not productive
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Hoover, ALJanuary 2, 2018
The company forces you to sign up people for a rewards card. Your performance on selling cards is based on whether you get hours or not. Very misogynistic, not willing to listen to employees about change.
Pros
discount on clothes
Cons
short breaks, low pay

Cashier (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJanuary 2, 2018
While I was there, and it has been some time, there was a great team culture between all the staff. Communication was fun and the job itself simple. It's a great part time job for a student, especially for athletes. The discount wasn't all that great though.
