    I worked at Big 5 full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Training is okay. Staff is pretty young for the most part. People shopping are usually open to suggestions, because they are shopping at Big 5.

    Cons

    Company only hires management from within. Working as a manager trainee is very near slave labor. Unloading a truck with little - or lazy - help is ridiculous. Expecting one person to shelve all those shoes and assist customers on their shift is silly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring people with management experience is done in other companies every day. If you have hired someone with management experience, try treating them with respect. Try hiring people just for unloading those trucks. One person to place the shoes on the shelf on truck day and one person to assist customers would work much more efficiently.
