SPEAKER: We are a special breed driven by something altogether different, the belief that one day every last second of work will have been worth it. Because we all know one thing, inside every golfer, is a better one.
SEE WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK IN OUR DISTRIBUTION CENTERS
[MUSIC PLAYING] JAMAL: Our job is, we’re going to be gathering the freight and sending it to our stores.
KYLEN: We got all these boxes coming in from multiple areas.
TYSON: Heavy boxes, light boxes.
JASON: Some of the boxes that we deal with, I mean, they’re not light.
BLAIR: We’ll take cartons off the conveyor belt, and then we’ll put them on the skids, make sure they’re stacked to a T.
JAMAL: We just take those boxes and stack them up to the best of our ability and get ’em on out.
JASON: I kind of have a brain for like, Tetris, and I like doing that with the boxes in the trailers.
DESIREE: You start to pull boxes off the lane and you scan them and start putting the amount that needs to go to that certain store. And once you have a full box, you push it off and it goes off to shipping.
JITENDER: This process keeps repeating all day.
DESIREE: Your day will go by fast when you’re busy.
JITENDER: We work as a team, so that we can provide the best service to the customers and to the stores.
DAVID: My role here at Dick’s is basically to pull the heavy stuff off, like treadmills, ellipticals, weight sets, stuff like that.
PABLO: I’ll go into the storage racks that we have, and using different equipment, such as a reach truck or an order picker, I will pick them to be sent to each individual store.
DAVID: It’s actually pretty fun, because you’re never really dealing with the same product every day.
JIMMY: To drive equipment, you gotta be certified by one of our trainers.
PABLO: Here at the DC we actually provide training. You would learn how to drive the equipment.
JOE: They have great benefits, the insurance is great. Vacation time. The pay is actually a lot better than most places start out.
DESIREE: There are a lot of opportunities for overtime, so if you ever need the extra cash.
TYSON: They treat you really well here, to be honest.
AARON: It says they care about their teammates and they care about the morale here.
[UPBEAT MUSIC] JAMAL: So the thing I like most about the material handler role, specifically, is I get paid to work out. It’s awesome.
TYSON: There’s a lot of hard work that goes into the job– the heavy boxes, light boxes.
JAMAL: This is not an easy job. You will work. You will sweat.
KYLEN: We get all these boxes coming in from multiple areas. We just take those boxes and stack them up to the best of our ability and get them on out.
JASON: I kind of have a brain for Tetris. And I like doing that with the boxes and the trailers.
BLAIR: You need to be on your feet for a long period of time. I do 10-hour shifts, and that’s a long time to be on your feet.
COLE: The thing I like best about the job is that it’s a fast-paced environment, and that helps with getting through 10-hour shifts, and it doesn’t really feel like 10 hours whenever you’ve always got something to do.
TYSON: I do like working the 4/10s. The 4/10s are pretty nice when you do get the Friday off.
JAMAL: I will never turn down a three-day weekend. It makes your day great.
KYLEN: I work weekend shift. And it is 12 hours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. So while you do miss out on some weekend stuff, you do get four days off. And it’s a pretty good trade-off.
BLAIR: So I work second shift, which is 4:45 to 3:30 in the morning. So I have to get my body used to that 10-hour shift at night. So now I’m a little night owl. [LAUGHING]
COLE: The overtime opportunities are amazing here, so if you need extra money, you can always come and get it.
TYSON: You do get a day off. They make you take a day off. You don’t work seven days a week.
AARON: It says they care about their teammates. And they care about the morale here.
TYSON: There’s always opportunities to try different departments out of this warehouse if you want to try something out.
BLAIR: They’ll ask us if we want to learn something new.
JAMAL: It’s not a situation where you feel like you’re kind of stuck where you are.
TYSON: They treat you real well here, to be honest.
JASON: I really like working here a lot. It’s unlike any other warehouse experience I’ve been to.
[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: The stores, the athletes can go in and buy the product that they need. But in order for them to do that, the DC has to make sure they get that product out to the stores. So that’s why it is very important for us to put the right product in the boxes.
SPEAKER 2: To be the best processor, you have to focus so that the right product and item shipped goes to the right store and customers.
SPEAKER 1: You start to pull boxes off the lane. And you scan them. And start putting the amount that needs to go to that certain store. And once you have a full box, you push it off. And it goes off to shipping.

SPEAKER 1: Your day will go by fast when you’re busy.
SPEAKER 2: All the employees are very friendly and we work as a team so that we can provide a best service to the customers and to the stores.

SPEAKER 2: I am an accounting student. So I like a weekend shift days. Because in a week, I get that time to finish my assignment, take my classes.
SPEAKER 1: There are a lot of opportunities for overtime. So if you ever need the extra cash.
