I worked at Big 5 part-time (More than a year)
I wanted a local summer job. The process of actually starting to work took forever, but once I started working and they got to know my work ethic, I got more hours.
Some managers were nice other were so/so. There are some interesting people who worked there, but it was always entertaining.
Advice to Management
just keep on keeping on
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Big 5 (Glendale, CA).
I was called in and asked the typical interview questions alongside my knowledge of sports. Overall it was a very normal process although I noticed some hesitancy when asked my previous wage, after that the interview was uncomfortable. The manager never made eye contact which from the start made the interview awkward but also did not distill any confidence in actually wanting the job.
