    I worked at Big 5 Sporting Goods part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very much a team environment and everyone gets along really well. Upper management is fantastic and always willing to help out their employees.

    Cons

    Retail in itself is a hard job. Customers, for the most part, aren't that great.
    Sometimes management takes a while to give reviews and raises.
