    Pros

    They give you some freedom to do your own thing, but creativity is really taken away most of the time.

    Cons

    There isnt enough freedom given to the employees for them to really sell. They have such a strict environment.

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    They hire employees at SHAMEFUL rates. They are always understaffed, being their turn over rate is so high.. They use and abuse employees and management is horrible. I was so excited to work this this company and have never been so disappointed in a job in my entire life. Shame on you. You have people giving you all they have while you're CEO's live a great life and the rest of your staff who is the reason you make money struggles day to day. I will never bring my business back to this store and will make sure no one I know will ever either.

    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Ability to work with sports equipment, ability to put previous knowledge about sports to good use, and very flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Poor training practices, minimal quarterly raises, their idea of "promotions" is to give you more work and responsibility, but little-to-no extra pay!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More personal training so employees don't have to learn everything through trial and error!
