Use to be great

Hibbett use to be great, but time, change in leadership, and economic factors have destroyed the culture of the company and the values it help for decades.

A productive and effective work environment

It was a good starting retail job I learnt a lot more about businesses and how they’re run. The management was good and fair most of the time. The location is the only downside


Small breaks


Short hours

Great entry level job. Used the discount!

Great entry level job. Used the discount! Started working there in high school and stayed with the company for a few years. Great management and solid staff.

Very mentally draining.

I usually get reamed for missing a simple thing while closing, every little mistake results in an uproar, also people talking smack behind eachothers back

Can be a good job

Pay is not what you think it would be for running a whole store with little help, and nothing you do is good enough for corporate. The job is a whole lot better when corporate doesn’t butt in. They keep incorporating things to make money that doesn’t have anything to do with the store. Getting rid of sports and only focusing on clothes and shoes.

Good place to work. It will be better if the pay was better. The managers are great everyone gets along. You have to multitask in this jobs you will multiple customers.

The boss was cool so the job was cool

We all just kept the store in order. Organized shoes & clothing, open/close store, count register. Had to sell a few side items but nvr really did. Not a busy store so not many problem customers.

Alright for Teens

I mean it was an alright job but nothing too permanent not even for assistant manager position to be honest, but you want something to do and get experience, it’s pretty good

Fun Workplace

My job at Hibbett was one of my FAVORITE jobs I’ve ever had. The Manager is super nice and pretty relaxed. As long as all of our goals were met, it was a great work environment!

Terrible Pay, poor upper management

Pretty easy job overall, but they give no support, almost no training, and upper management is clueless. The pay is also ridiculous. It helps that you have to work 45-55 hours a week so you get overtime pay, but still the pay is horrible.

Decent job

Most locations in my area are relatively slow apart from holiday/bts season. Pay was decent considering how slow the store can be. Not much room for growth in the company.

Nice job

It was a pretty good first job. Management is okay and communicates well. Pay is a bit low but not bad. The raises are fair and the best I had at a first time job

Go to a different location

Terrible location to work for. The company in itself is great but this location is terrible. One Employee is expected to do everything in this store while the rest do nothing. Apply to Marion, better management and work experience.

Not great

Very gimmicky place to work. They make you market for them on social media with no extra pay. They always want you to jump through hoops for them but never vice versa. Wouldn't recommend unless you're in high-school and can get out.
