Get your feet wet, but have a towel ready
Sales Manager - Lodge Department (Former Employee), Madison, WIJuly 6, 2014
Pros: employee discounts
Cons: unrealistic expectations by senior management, difficult advancement paths, poor support by senior management, top-heavy organization
As an hourly associate, they typically leave you stranded with little support from management or other departments.

As a manager, you are asked to make miracles happen with such a tight payroll that you are often working unbelievably long work weeks to meet deadlines for resets within the store.

Discount is nice, and, usually, there is a healthy camaraderie – more... amongst peers owing to shared misery.

If you have a guardian angel that has a higher paygrade than you, your chances for advancement are reasonable, but usually take a while to materialize. – less

Lodge Sales Associate (Current Employee), Lakewood, COJuly 3, 2014
I really enjoy my job at Dick's Sporting Goods because it directly relates to my passion outside of work which is sports and the outdoors. Because of my passion I thoroughly enjoy working with customers and assisting them with the knowledge I have pertaining to my areas of interest. The pay here is terrible though for the amount of work you will put – more... in for a shift. I have interviewed three separate times for management positions to always be beat out by someone who is a bit older and has more experience in the work field in total. I like being in charge of my department and following planograms to make decisions in changing up the flow of the department. I always have enjoyed my co-workers and have made some connections through these fellow co-workers. However it is time for me to move on to a career that will pay the bills a little more and gives me more opportunities to move up in the ranks! – less

Job security was not as expected
Footwear Sales Associate (Former Employee), Arlington Heights, ILJuly 3, 2014
Pros: flexibility
Co-workers were amazing to work with and the managers were understanding and willing to teach.
I was told that I was hired as part time for when I was available, since I would be away at school and unable to work. They hired a new manager in another department and asked him if he would like me back, but failed to ask the person who was above me.
I find – more... it odd and discomforting that they would fail to speak to my manager about it. When they did take me back when I was able to work over winter break. – less

Good Job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Peoria, ILJuly 3, 2014
Pros: operation hours, employees, job efficiency
Cons: scorecard program
This job was a decent one, to say the least. The company is good and the products were even better. The overall experience was definitely a learning one. The people working there were awesome and the clientele was mostly nice. Retail work is "different." I say that because everyday brought something new and unique; I would never know if it was going – more... to be a good customer day or a disgruntled customer day. The job itself was not that difficult, and the hours were good. – less

Fun place to work
Store Manager (Former Employee), Chicagoland AreaJune 26, 2014
Pros: fun enviroment
Cons: discount could better, always talking about merchanding and not enough about people development.
Typical day is running the floor to ensure your customers are getting serviced while merchandising and completing tasks. Dicks have not learned how to stop being such a task driven company so the associates can focus on the customers. Or another way to say it, is that they will not pony up additional payroll to get tasks completed and drive customer – more... service. – less

What you expect from a retail job
Footwear Specialist (Current Employee), Okemos, MIJune 24, 2014
Pros: employee discounts and coupons
Mostly communicating with customers all day, trying to up-sell products.

Managers didn't communicate with each other very well, one would give you a task and another would give you another task that they felt was more important. Then the first manager would be upset for not completing first task.

If you like sports this is good place to work, helping – more... customers find what they are looking for by using your own experiences is actually quite rewarding. – less

Good benefits, friendly co-workers, advancement opportunities.
Freight Flow Lead (Current Employee), Bee Cave, TXJune 24, 2014
My workday consists of daily cleaning and organizing, assisting customers, packaging products to be shipped, helping co-workers with tasks and processing defectives and claims. I supervise a small team that unloads trucks once or twice a week and occasionally perform MOD tasks. I have learned essential leadership and problem solving skills. Management, – more... for the most part, is helpful and appreciative while keeping a friendly and professional relationship with their employees. Co-workers are generally friendly and hardworking and go out of their way to help make each others day a little brighter. The hardest part of the job is balancing multiple tasks throughout the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is the feeling of accomplishment that comes with a job well done. – less
