    I worked at Big 5 part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is very low stress since all you do is sell sporting goods. They usually promote from within and the employee discounts are amazing! As long as you are a friendly and outgoing person then you will fit right in with this company.

    Cons

    The pay is very little. Too many projects and the trucks are usually filled with inventory that must be stocked that day. Must be willing to stand on your feet the entire shift other than breaks.
