    Pros

    It was an easy job to have while attending college.

    There were far to many employees and not enough hours to go around. Some weeks I was only getting 5 hours.

    Pros

    The people made this a great place to work. They were helpful when it came to teaching new tasks and made everyone feel important.

    Cons

    It is difficult to be hired seasonally if you do not have a completely open schedule during the holidays.

    Pros

    Working here can be exciting, fast paced, your coworkers get to know you well and usually have a positive team attitude.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are that managers are not afraid to tell you when you've made mistakes and some lower level managers come off as rude

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should look at the way they are treating other managers and their employees

    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods

    Pros

    managers are cool
    you get a discount
    most employees get along

    Cons

    Very corporate
    not many hours
    way too pushy about the scorecard sales
    Working the holiday season especially having to work on Thanksgiving Day and not given time and a half or an option to volunteer to work that day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more hours if you want your employees to care about selling scorecards and want them to know the products in the store. We can't pay our bills on 4 hours a week. Don't forget we are humans, not robots. Allow us to have drinks up front as long as we don't drink right in a customer's face.
