It's been eight months since this company decided to show me the f—ing door after fifteen years of exemplary performance. And for what? Not because there was no need for my position but because they wanted to replace me with somebody cheaper. They... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Dick's Sporting Goods Inc.
This is a generic discussion thread to capture comments about potential D–k's Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Makes no sense to me, but I've heard from somebody that we might be looking at some closings soon. Is there a chance this is not utter b—s—?
Surprised me when it stated they are looking for 9000 employees. How many DSG stores are there?
No doubt about it. All the signs of circling the drain are here.
Technology just reorged, and it’s a disaster. Some roles eliminated, some leaders are actually being asked to apply for non-leadership roles. Design tossed around like it doesn’t matter And given to product management. New roles (scrum master?!?)... — read more
THE ANSWER HERE IS a SAD but obvious ploy to eliminate long term older people and / or higher paid people... and in my department primarily men over 40. The sad part is to get it under the cover of Covid 19 as well as under cover of age... — read more
I've heard we're looking at more cuts in July, is this true?
What's the point of laying somebody off and immediately posting their position as available for hire? I'd understand if I was a top earner, but I'm in the middle of the pack. There are so many people who earn more than I did and they are still... — read more
When there were layoffs a few years ago, Ed said it was the saddest day in his career, and he’d never do it again. The company never fully recovered. And then they choose a pandemic, with massive job losses and a terrible financial market, to... — read more
Right as the pandemic started and DSG furloughed almost everyone, Lauren Hobart wrote an impassioned piece on LinkedIn about how sad she was and how DSG would come back stronger than ever, blah, blah, blah. There were 1600 reactions to her post, and... — read more
Don't get too comfortable, this is far from over. Now that the layoffs floodgates are open, don't expect them to stop any time soon. If you are smart, you'll start looking for a new job right now. Nobody is safe here anymore...
I worked in the Corporate office for over 14 years, furloughed in April. We were told the goal is to bring EVERYONE back- total c-ap. I don't know how many across the board were let go yesterday, but they did a great job ruining many of our lives... — read more
More layoffs at corporate happening today
For those wondering - yes, D–k's Sporting Goods is laying off people. More then half of the corporate employees were shown the door yesterday. More will probably follow.
I'm guessing furloughs at the best for most store + some corporate positions starting next week. They were only prepared for stuff to be closed thru the 7th. After that "difficult decisions would need to be made" They already cut almost all... — read more
Is D–k's doing furloughs like other companies. If yes, how many of you are afraid you'll not be able to be back to your jobs.
Will there be layoffs when we go back?
I worked at D–k's from early 1996 - late 2002 full time and part time until early 2005. Got a new full time job when they were "improving the financials" to go public. Left completely when they cut me to just a few hours a week. Before that, I... — read more
Post any information you have about the total headcount (I know it changes all the time). How about the main office at Coraopolis?
Share any updates you may have about D–k's Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Wondering how Under Armour and Yeti has been selling in your stores?
I was looking around and found that even more D--k's Sporting Goods stores are closing - West Mifflin and Springfield ones being among the latest. What's going on here? Why are we seeing such an uptick in closing stores? I'd lie if I said I wasn't... — read more
D--k’s Sporting Goods in Springfield, Ohio will be no more as of March 16. https://www.springfieldnewssun.com/news/local/d--k-sporting-goods-springfield-closing/lN3XxBvdzfk1vjQzdOmF3J/
Here is a suggestion for reconceptulization... Close down the largely underperforming F&S, keep the moderate performing F&S and combo stores. Reduce skus and change all d---s lodges to F&S mini stores comparible to a cabalas or mom/pop shop look and... — read more
One more D--k's Sporting Goods store is shuttering, this one is in Yorkville. Looks like we learn about one new closing once a month. I guess that's not too bad considering we have a total of over 800 stores... — read more
Post any information about potential or actual D--k's Layoffs in 2019?
Anybody knows if employees were offered jobs in nearby stores? The D--k's Sporting Goods store at Route 30 and Kenneth Road in York is closing Sunday, according to a sign in the store's lobby... — read more
Are all the stores closing lodge?
I just found out D--k's Sporting Goods store at Stony Point Shopping Center in Richmond is closing. I'm trying to figure out if this is an isolated incident or if there were more closings in past weeks or months we haven't been hearing about. Anybody... — read more
A sh--ton of politics in the corporate office - watch your back - you will be stabbed. I will jet ASAP - cannot stand this any more.
If someone asks you about layoffs do not discuss it - just ignore the question - the HR is tracking email traffic and website you surf, at least here in corporate in Coraopolis.
The lay offs this past May in NM almost all were high performers. They gutted a whole department regardless of how good the employees were. I wondered why didnt they go through various departments and lay off the non performers and integrate the hard... — read more
I'm surprised they don't cut the fat in all their budgets before cutting the people. This company drops funds on the most useless things, money down the drain without a thought. Yet thinks the only way to solve the issue is by cutting high... — read more
It's all about money, the only reason that they did this was to cut cost. They fired some really awesome people who do great work. Why? Because they make too much money. That's their whole intention. And the stores still get screwed in the end by not... — read more
The VP of Construction as well as some facilities and store planning folks were let go including the Director of Store planning.
He wants young people. He got rid of people that have been there for a long time that were talent and has families. Not right
Is the reasoning in the email yesterday legit or just fluff so others don't begin to panic? Seems the layoffs were not all centralized to just marketing and store support.
I just want to spend a moment and say how sorry I am because some really awesome folks were let go today, some of the best that I've ever worked with. I get the business side of this deal, and I am not going to spill anything negative here - I do... — read more
