Most of the people are great, but it’s not a job you would want if you are trying to start a life/family.
Team Coordinator (Current Employee) – Somerset, KY – August 15, 2018
It’s an easy job, very relaxed. Most workers there are great, management needs some work. I don’t think I get paid enough. I’m a hard worker, and I’ve been there for two years and I’ve only went from $7.25 to $7.65.

learned about different sports as well as rules and regulations on guns and DNR systems management was rough a little disorganized with little trust with employees hardest part was inventory at your store best part was stocking and organizing the shoe department
Slow Paced, Head manager Doesn't know whats going on half the time.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Sanford, NC – August 7, 2018
Head manager is clueless and sits in her office all day. She forgets to schedule people and has to cover the register weekly. They only will schedule you less then 20hrs a week. They are understaffed and do not prosecute for theft so anyone can steal anything they want in front of you and cant say anything to them. They can steal YETI'S or walk out with anything they would like.

Management is amazing they are will to work around your day to day life. They understand they you have a responsibilities outside of work. It's a great job to get your started , to give the experience you need.
Coming into work often became boring and repetitive. I think in order to have a successful day at work, employees have to be interested in being there
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Madison Heights, MI – July 28, 2018
Moments at work were fun, some were dull. I thinking this location could use more employees. For the time I was the their were not enough employees for the company to have successful teamwork. Customers would get angry because of that from time to time and this was a big problem.

I like the place to work but the management kind of just skrews you over. They promote those who don't work and give hours to those who just stand around or walk around the store. Outside hires are paid more than inside promotions. I am repeatedly shorted on my hours while people who just stand around and refuse to do anything are given over 20 hours every week.
discount, some coworkers, easy environment
hours, corporate, district manager, terrible advancement opportunities
Department Coordinator of Apparel (Former Employee) – Bloomsburg, PA – July 26, 2018
i loved my job. i knew alot of customers. I though i did a good job at what i did. I was friendly, caring, helpful, understanding and people came back to see me. I felt sometimes I was robbed of my duties. I wasn't appreciated for my well done jobs. I caught people stealing. not one corporate thank you. it was like nothing. I protected my store. it was like my baby. Disappointed in the care of the employees.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lake Orion, MI – July 22, 2018
Dunham's Sports was my first job when I was a senior in high school! I learned plenty, such as how to count money at a decent speed, customer service, how to work with others...mostly those who are very tough to work with. Stressful at moments when upset customers blame a mistake or an issue on yourself.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Fenton, MI – July 16, 2018
The store I worked in was flexible with hours. Our managers were friendly once you got to know them, and they never asked too much of you. Like anywhere you were assigned projects to complete, but as long as they were completed in a timely manner they wouldn't bother you too much.
Retail Associate, Cashier, and Dept. Coordinator (Former Employee) – Angola, IN – June 6, 2018
I learned how to get emails and I was able to help the company benefit from that. The hardest part of the job was always being stuck as cashier. I wanted the opportunity to advance and do more but was never given it to me because I was so good on getting emails. I understand but I deserve to grow and advance. Especially when I can do a great job for the company and do more!
Key Team Leader/Apparel Coordinator (Current Employee) – Hannibal, MO – June 4, 2018
I really enjoy working at Dunham's Sports. A typical day is filled with fairly easy tasks such as rearranging and performing manager overrides. I learned how to market items in different ways so they will sell better and how to lay out merchandise to draw customers in. The work force is composed of many friendly co-workers who are there to get there job done. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unhappy customers and coming up with the correct solution to make them happy, but it helps me learn how to deal with difficult situations. The best part of the job is helping people find what they are looking for at the best price possible.
good break times, fun environment, great co-workers
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Franklin, WI – May 20, 2018
Overall a okay place to work. The sales floor is always understaffed. Managers are sometimes hard to find when they are needed. The raises for the individuals working there are mediocre. I have learned how to interact with customers on a day to day basis.
