    I have been working at Big 5 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Full benefits, they treat you like family. It's an awesome place to work for and work with. Great corporation to be a part of.

    Cons

    It's retail so the schedule is not fun. That would be the biggest issue for me. Also wouldn't mind being paid a little more

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice for more money.
