Cashier/Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee), Clarksville, INOctober 15, 2014
A typical day working at Dick's Sporting Goods would consist of many different job tasks, a very upbeat work pace, and something new learned every day. Whether that be from management, co-workers, or customers. There are many days, more frequently during holiday season, that the work day can include many stressful obstacles such as consistent long lines, – more... rude customers, an overwhelming environment, but I believe that can be any job at times, especially retail. The hardest part of working at Dick's Sporting Good's would be that the employee's, including management, are never consistent, meaning they are always rehiring new staff very frequently. The most enjoyable part of working at Dick's Sporting Good's is every day there is something new to learn whether it is for the benefit of yourself, your co-workers, or your company. – less

Lodge Associate (Current Employee), Deptford, NJOctober 14, 2014
Help customers and educate customers on products. Learned a lot about different products. worked well with co workers and got along. Management was friendly and helpful. Hardest part of the job was trying to help any and all customers while trying to put out product. most enjoyable part of the job was working around products and customers that shared – more... the same passion as I do for hunting and fishing. – less

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.

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

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
