Great work environment

Cashier (Former Employee)
Palmdale, CA (US)

I worked at Big 5 part-time for more than 5 years

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

ConsRetail 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
