Project Manager, Visual Presentation (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 16, 2018
The company has gone through a lot of change within the last 10 years and has become very different from the company I started working for in 2005. Economic climate drives a culture of desperation, lots of "shoot from the hip" decisions that end up creating a lot of headache a few months later. Depending on where you are in the company and what level it can seem like management is floundering to keep their head above water. That being said, there are many pros about working here - job security (in comparison to other retail companies) and a "fun" culture at times.

Supply Chain Integration Project Leader (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 12, 2018
Amenities and benefits make it worth it, but corporate hierarchy and politics make advancing difficult based on pure job performance alone. The culture is similar to a college campus with many different cliques.
Golf Sales Lead (Former Employee) – Greensburg, PA – July 12, 2018
Certain rules only apply to certain employees. Lousy place to work. No development for employees looking to move up. Pay raises are awful and are predetermined by a points system. No consistency to scheduling even for full time employees.
Casual dress code.
pay, environment, treatment by management, hours, no consistency to scheduling.
Distribution Supervisor (Former Employee) – Smithton, PA – July 12, 2018
Very little conscientious regarding quality. No desire to improve processes. Top down dictatorship. A supervisor fell asleep at his station regularly, without corrective action being taken. Overall, a dismal experience.
Golf Club Technician (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 11, 2018
Love the golf part of the job. Golf is very important to Dick's Sporting Goods. The golf facilities are top notch. And every golf employee at Dick's Sporting Goods is very knowledgeable of golf and golf equipment.
Sales Leader (Former Employee) – Saint George, UT – July 10, 2018
Downside to this job is they let go of peole on a weekly basis. meaning if you didnt come close to youre numbers consistantly they were letting you go. also some of the higher end managers did not treat customers or the employees well. i already wrote a letter to HR.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 10, 2018
Managers chosen at one particular location did not follow company policies and allowed employees to squeak by without following rules or abiding by common ethical practices. When confronted, issues were not handled or changed.
A day in the life of working at Dick's involves short bursts of customers flooding the department to a steady flow to a ghost town. Depends on the day of the week and time of day. When it's busy it's very fun to be able to engage with customers.
Cashier/Front End (Current Employee) – Yorba Linda, CA – July 9, 2018
Coworkers become good friends very quickly. Managers are so friendly and great people to talk to. Most stores seem strict but my store is relaxed and laid back. You get constant customers coming in and become friendly to them as well.
I learned how to stalk shelf’s , use the scanner and pdt I would walk around my department ( team sports ) and ask people what kind of sports equipment they needed I also learned how to steam a baseball glove I did several steamings a day. Management was very unorganized with they’re scheduling but they didn’t ever get mad if I didn’t know what I was doing. Most enjoyable part would have to be helping the customer get what they’re son or daughter needs for they’re season
