Real Estate Manager/Real Estate Project Manager (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – February 21, 2019
Hibbett was a great work environment with great people. I was able to come on board in one position and be promoted to a new position and was able to add a new skill set to my resume. I was able to work a flex schedule which allowed me to avoid rush hour traffic.
Customer Relations Specialist (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – February 19, 2019
Hibbett has BY far been one of THE best jobs I’ve ever had. They are extremely flexible, management is extremely understanding. Peak season(Christmas, Tax season & back to school) can be pretty rough expect to take 100-200 calls per day. Other than that the office is generally slow. There are often free food & events that bond you & coworkers together. The only con is the hours. You can be scheduled to work anywhere from 9-9 with weekends included. Whereas, certain employees can work better schedules for whatever reasons. The work environment is always great, coworkers are always willing and ready to assist you. Hibbett overall treats employees fair & well. The paid could be a little better but it’s equalivant to the work load.
Perfect job for a teenager with no responsibilities
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Opelousas, LA – February 17, 2019
This is not the job for a person with major bills. This is the perfect job for a teen in high school or looking for money to do activities with friends. You only receive 20 plus hours a week if you are in a position of management. Regular sales associates may receive a max of 15 hours a week if that’s possible. Its a real laid back job, not really much to do on a normal day.
Productive workplace because there is always something to do, something to learn, and someone to help. Fun workplace because its a sporting goods store. Rewarding because of the great people to work with in a great company.
The People I worked with were great! lowest pay ever for retail!! beware!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Indian Land, SC – February 4, 2019
I Wanted to work for Hibbett based on it being extremely close to my house. I didn't realize Hibbett cuts cost in any way possible. Store managers make around 30k ouch! I had the mindset going in that I would be able to work early mornings to set up the store and unload the truck and set the signage...nope they only get a truck one day a week and EVERYTHING gets put out on the floor some racks were so full you couldn't even shop..I've been in retail for close to 10 years and the way they operated was so old school. I was told that I couldn't leave product with customers which is understandable but when it's a 80 year old women trying on a pair of brooks walkers I think were fine nobody is stealing. You could never tell management they're wrong or bring up new ideas such as product placement or what the customer ask for. It's best to use Hibbetts as a last resort job or a first time job. I highly recommend Dicks sporting goods as a better choice.
Coach in Training (Former Employee) – Columbia, MS – January 31, 2019
The work was very physical, hours long management was not helpful. Hours long and gruesome. No support. Managers and employees stealing. You couldn't talk an issue out without corrective actions against you. Some staff publicly humiliated employees in front of customers and other employees.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Oak Ridge, TN – January 30, 2019
Store management had alternate motives than what district management would standardize. Particularly the rule of not being able to leave the facility for smoke and/or lunch breaks was not communicated with me at any time during my employment.

Every day at Hibbett provides a new challenge, but the people that you are surrounded by are easy to work with and all have the same goal in mind. Whether you are selling products or re-arranging the store, there is never a shortage of things to do.
a typical work day involved stocking the shoe room, hanging up clothes, straightening shelves, opening the cash register, cashing out customers, talking to people. I learned how to manage my time effectively because i always had someone watching my every move. Management was poor no one really cared what they were doing they were never welling to work together it was their way or the highway and i fell as a company you should want feed back from your employees and your customers to continuous better themselves as a company. The hardest part was dealing with management because i felt like i had some great ideas to promote business and they always shut it down and never gave me the time of day. I like to help, and i like to make a difference. Dealing with my fellow co workers like the people under me we all got along and made the day go by smoothly and effectively. I also really enjoyed working with the customers.
