Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 29, 2017
When i started at Dick's it was an awesome place to work at and i made many friends there. However, management sucked and over worked anyone they could. When i started there, they promised advancement but while working there i didn't not see one person get promoted higher than Lead. Being a lead myself and also going to school was very stressful all along with them calling me every time someone called in for a shift. Because our store was the "training" store, my two years working there, we went through four different store managers and countless supervisors. The best part of working there was the cool people you got to work with, customers not so much.

systems that they use are very simple and some times a bit complicated to the efficiency of customers needs, however every system has its draw backs. as an overall experience i would give them four stars and would recommend others to work there

Dicks campus is very nice and comes with great ammentities. You are able to take advantage of an on site Starbucks, Dry Cleaner, full service restaurant to entertain customers, and a great work out facility.
Starbucks on site
Campus is isolated so not much near to walk to for lunch options
Team Lead (Former Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – December 27, 2017
Dicks Sporting Goods has been my second home for nearly the last three years. Although I do enjoy my coworkers, I am tired of working in retail. My job is fun but having to deal with a lot of ungrateful people over the last couple of months has been exhausting. I joined the company to talk about my passion for sports as well as selling the best product I could for any type of sport. In the past couple of months, I've noticed that people are really grateful around this time of the year, so that is a great perk of working in retail. However, in a couple of different situations I have occasionally received a bit of grief from a couple of customers where I had to get a manager on duty to help understand. Being in retail made me realize that it's a great job for kids in college who need to make some "pocket money".
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – December 27, 2017
I really enjoy working at my Dicks Sporting Goods location. We have a great staff along with a great management team. Everyone works together on projects, it doesn't depend on their position. It's a great work environment.
I worked at the Dicks in Midtown which was ok for the most part until we kept getting robbed. So they went to cut our hours to compensate for the loss. So instead of receiving 20 to 30 hours, we were barely reaching 20. Which could have been avoided if we had the security that the other stores had. But it was never put in place the store was robbed every day.

Worked here part time while I was in community college, they are usually flexible with what hours you ask for. Like most places the people who are higher up in charge aren't quite fond of the requests and flexibility you tend to seek.
I was the type to always try and find a come up and hustle hard all on my own. When i started at Dicks Sporting Goods ive learned that a team can help you in many ways. Ive learned and developed my potential because of the people
Apparel Associate (Current Employee) – Folsom, CA – December 22, 2017
Its a fun environment to work in. I have great regular customers. A majority of colleagues that I love and adore, however favoritism reeks its ugly head from time to time. The young employees can whine their way into making drama happen the workplace. Makes it hard for me who is in her 30's not to rip them to pieces. Sometimes my experience can overpower their egos.
Associates were fun, I made a lot of friends there. But the management as a whole was nothing special. Don't pay deserving associates well. New associates make more than old and old associates have to train the higher paid new associates. Just not a very fair work place

When working at Dick's I worked during the holiday season, so it stayed fairly busy. We always had something to work on, which was great for me. I met some fantastic people while working there and they made it hard to leave.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Oxnard, CA – December 21, 2017
I worked at Dicks Sporting goods as a seasonal worker. It was a pretty slow paced job. It would be a good first step into retail for anyone looking. The management team is pretty laid back, easier to work for.
