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

    Pros

    decent starting out first time job

    Cons

    low pay business dress code no set schedules poor life balance bad training

    Advice to Management

    Update the training to the new century, a training guide written in 1986 is not at all helpful in today's world. Ditch the 1950's dress code, your motto is "selling sporting goods is fun". It's not fun when you're in a dress shirt and tie. Try treating your store managers with respect. Saving a buck at the expense of you employees is bad business.
