**Special note from blog author: Dicks [Sporting Goods], which is relatively new to Florida, is a horrible company to work for. They don't give a fuck about their employees. They hire people as full-time, but give them part-time hours so that they work just enough NOT to qualify for unemployment when they continuously cut their hours. Write corporate/headquarters all you want, no one will respond to your complaints. Local stores run their employees like slaves. No growth within as they work you until you quit, then, they just hire someone else. Racial discrimination applies.**
