    I have been working at Big 5 part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Never got denied a requested day off, coworkers / managers were good people (varies by store). Decent hours and were able to work around my college classes.

    Cons

    Dress Code - It's the 21'st century, button-up, ties and slacks in a sporting goods environment is ridiculous. No facial hair except for mustaches. This kind of dress code really has no place in any retail store, especially a sporting goods one.
    Pay is a bit underwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the dress code, this isn't 1975.
