Topics regarding layoffs at Dick's Sporting Goods Inc.

More messes

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 

What's the point?

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 

So many lies

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 

From a former employee

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

More to come

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...

Next Phase

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 

Full time still 30 hours?

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

What's going on?

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 

Mr. Stack

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

Another store closing

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

Richmond Stony Point store closing

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

D--k's Layoffs 2018

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.

Its all about money

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
