I have been working at Big 5 part-time for less than a year

Pros

Employee discount. Easy work. Doesn't require much effort or intelligence to work there.

Cons

Lazy coworkers. Average less than 6 scheduled work hours a week. Minimum wage. Males must be clean shaven and have short hair. Required to where a shirt and tie when doing manual labor. It's hard to pay for nice work cloths when your making $50 a week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring new people when you cant give your current employees enough hours. Please don't keep the lazy workers around, let them go.

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

    Pros

    They'll hire anyone who seems to have their stuff together. You can get a job there if your really hurting to find a job.

    Cons

    ...They'll hire anyone who seems to have their stuff together. They pay so little that no one stays there for a long time, their employees are a revolving glass door. They expect you to do all this work even though they start you off at a low pay and give little to no raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees a littler more and you might have to hire every person who applies.
