About the Company

Dick Stack was just eighteen years old when he had the first bright ideas for what would become Dick’s Sporting Goods. In 1948, Stack was working at an Army surplus store in Binghamton, New York, and suggested to his boss to include fishing tackle in their product offerings. The owner was hardly receptive, and Stack decided to quit and pursue his vision of a sports and outdoors store that offered a wider array of products, a one-stop shop for all things sport. In search of comfort and advice,...

Intern Reviews

  • "Dick's Sporting Goods' team focused culture creates a great working environment. Being new in a new location is always challenging; however, I was able to adjust quickly and I enjoyed my time at the store overall."
  • "My experience with DICK’s Sporting Goods was amazing. I felt like I was valued and was given the opportunity to strengthen my skill set while also learning every day. The Community this company has created is incredibly welcoming and exciting."
  • "The environment is very welcoming, coworkers are attentive to my progress and schedule, I can work as many hours as I'd like unless it exceeds 40 hours a week, and the company promotes teammates (employees) to take a break and get active, so it's been a healthy balance."
  • "I love the culture at DSG. They genuinely want to do the right thing for their employees. Members of my team did not have to ask for days off. They simply had to let the team know in advance when they were going to take a vacation. Additionally, if something unexpected came up, they were able to attend to family emergencies without question. Still, my team worked hard. They pushed code out every day, worked on cool projects, and planned for future growth at the company. Great environment!"

Getting Hired Here

  • "The interviews were fine the first time around. I didn't like the screener videos we had to make because it felt weird filming myself, but the interviews with actual designers were good. They talked about my portfolio in the first one and had me do a design exercise in the second. For my return internship, I was just given an offer."
  • "During my interview process, I talked to many really kind and knowledgable people. It was clear to me that this is a selective program, but I never felt like it was overly-rigorous or that they were making me jump through unnecessary hoops."
  • "I had two back-to-back interviews with two individuals in merchandising, one buyer and one inventory planner. The questions were mostly related to company culture and teamwork more than technical skills. It was pretty obvious they prefer to find someone who fits their mold and then give them the technical skills they require. Interviews were done online through teams."
  • "My hiring process consisted of one, initial meeting w/ the university recruiter, and a hour-long interview w/ the team I was (and am) to work with. The interview consisted of about 50% technical and 50% personal questions. I also found out that I was accepted in 2 days, so I couldn't have asked for a better hiring process."
