I have been working at Big 5 full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Work is easy. There is always something to do or some customer to help. Training is there you just got to keep reminding them about it. Most of the time they are worried with getting the ad set up or some other project

Cons

Training is slow. They won't train you unless you are scheduled for it. Current manager's may see you as a threat so they slow your training down.

Advice to Management

You will get promoted faster if you get your employee's promoted or at least turn them in to rock stars.

    I worked at Big 5 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great if in your 20's fresh out of college and looking for management training.

    Cons

    Pay is not very good for senior management. 5+ years in any other retail management would be above 50,000 a year.

    Advice to Management

    Become a store manager, get the title, stay for another year or two, then move on.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount. Easy work. Doesn't require much effort or intelligence to work there.

    Cons

    Lazy coworkers. Average less than 6 scheduled work hours a week. Minimum wage. Males must be clean shaven and have short hair. Required to where a shirt and tie when doing manual labor. It's hard to pay for nice work cloths when your making $50 a week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new people when you cant give your current employees enough hours. Please don't keep the lazy workers around, let them go.
