Productive and fun work place
Cashier (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 10, 2016
A typical day at Big 5 would just be me greeting entering and departing customers, cleaning the work place, ringing customers up, suggesting add on sales, and working on side projects.
I learned a lot of about how to multi-task and take care of the needs of multiple customers.
Management was like the employees' parents. They had to be strict and enforce rules, but they were also understanding whenever personal problems would arise.
Coworkers were all friends. We were like a big family. We knew how to have fun together, but when it came down to work, we would get right back to it.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with customers who weren't satisfied with our service. I wanted every customer to leave knowing they we tried everything we could to help them get what they wanted.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting all kinds of different people everyday and making new friends occasionally. I am a very social person, so I love meeting new people.
Friendly coworkers, understanding management
Little to no raises, rare promotions
