Pros

They will work around your school schedule as a part timer. Great people really make the job enjoyable. I understand the benefits are really good if your in management or full-time position. Some of the managers are afraid to test the market because the insurance is so good.

Cons

You have to work holidays unless your a trainee or unless you request it off. The part-timers do not receive direct deposit and a few times checks were late getting to the store. The district manager mostly from what I seen makes all the decisions on where stuff goes in the store but I've heard it depends on your district manager.

Advice to Management

I think the management are very closed off of the ideas that other employees suggest. I thinks communication could be implemented more to help the store rather than no store meetings.

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

    Pros

    Employee discounts are good. Advancement is there if you work hard. They like to promote from within.

    Cons

    It's retail so you work weekends, nights, and holidays. Salary based on mandatory overtime every week. Retirement benefits are a joke. No raises in more than a year. Medical benefits(which used to be free) are now costing employees money.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of modernization needed and get rid of the white shirts and ties. The women don't have to wear them.
