Have you started holiday shopping yet? It may seem a little early but a good chunk of people have already begun and plan on shopping earlier as opposed to waiting until last minute this year. Plus, with the pandemic, retailers are trying to avoid the usual crowds by moving up their deals and spreading them out. What does all of this mean? Workers are needed!

DICK'S Sporting Goods is kicking off the holidays with "National Signing Day" on Wednesday, October 14. This begins their recruitment efforts of hiring 9,000 people across their stores and distribution centers nationwide. This includes tons of positions in Michigan.

DICK'S says they are looking for "...applicants with a passion for sports" to join their team.

Teammates will benefit from competitive pay, a 15 percent pay premium through the end of the year, an up-to 25%-off store discount and the opportunity to work with the leading sports and outdoor brands.

If interested, you can search for an open position here, fill out an application, and stop at any DICK'S or Golf Galaxy store near you for National Signing Day and to interview in person. If you can't make it to the event on Wednesday, you are still encouraged to apply online.

DICK'S Sporting Goods has the following West Michigan locations:

  • 5118 28th St. SE, Grand Rapids
  • 3660 Rivertown Parkway, Grandville (Rivertown Crossings)

DICK'S Sporting Goods was one of the first stores to announce that they would be closed on Thanksgiving this year so that employees can spend the day with their families. Black Friday deals begin that day on the company's websites across their brand.
