Current Employee - Manager In Training in Tracy, CA

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

Pros

Work is easy. There is always something to do or some customer to help. Training is there you just got to keep reminding them about it. Most of the time they are worried with getting the ad set up or some other project

Cons

Training is slow. They won't train you unless you are scheduled for it. Current manager's may see you as a threat so they slow your training down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You will get promoted faster if you get your employee's promoted or at least turn them in to rock stars.
