  1. Mind numbingly boring and repetitive job while having worthless people as managers.

    Pros

    The people who work there are very nice and fun to hang out with. Also, the scheduling is very flexible and you can get any time off when needed. This is a good place to work while in college because of the flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    If you have any amount of a strong work ethic you will not like it at Big 5. There is practically no product training, the pay is crap, and the managers and other part timers are almost all morons. The district managers are very political and view part timers as piles dispensable fecal matter.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent people, pay at least $1.50 more per hour, and develop product training so your sales associates can answer customer questions.

  2. Laid back job, dis functional management, no room for growth

    I have been working at Big 5

    Pros

    Super laid back, very simple tasks

    Cons

    Horrible communication among managers, managers play favorites, don't show much respect for part time employees, very old ways of doing things

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better, give more respect to part timers, stop using current ad system. Change the dress code
