    I have been working at Big 5 full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    reasonable salary, great time and benefits for your whole family in management level. Mostly a professional environment.

    Cons

    long hours, extremely busy all year round, time off is almost impossible, very tiring and only management gets good benefits. Part time is horrid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better with better benefits !

    Current Employee - Part Time Sales in Grants Pass, OR

    I have been working at Big 5 part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you find someone who will teach you sales techniques, the laid back sales requirement can help you learn with no pressure.

    Cons

    No hours given to part time sales, no incentive to promote people after many years, no commission if performance is above par, no benefits to part timers, even meager ones for people who have been there for years, no direct deposit for part timers. Other cooworkers and management can be a joke at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How hard is it to get direct deposit for part timers who have clearly shown that they are not leaving their job for years to come.
