    I worked at Big 5 Sporting Goods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Managers were understanding and easy to talk to. They were more than willing to give you time off if you asked in advance. The job itself was pretty easy and not super stressful.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't great and there's no opportunity for raises unless you work there for more than three months. Some co-workers were unreliable and would quit without giving their two weeks', which made it more difficult for the people who were reliable. There were also people who would just decide not to show up to work, which again, puts more pressure on everyone else.

    I worked at Big 5 Sporting Goods part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible with hours due to school schedule and other activities. Teaches you how to be responsible and prompt.

    Cons

    Doing truck and getting paid just a little more than minimum was a buzz kill.

    Advice to Management

    For those doing truck days, offer a higher base pay for their work to be compensated.
