Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Issaquah, WA – March 8, 2018
This job is very simple. Customers ask for shoes in a certain size, and the shoes can be found in storage. We measure the customers shoe size, and provide them with the shoe they need. Closing duties are to simply 'face' the store, restock the aisles and to close the tills.
Very good job for people with little or no experience.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee) – Peoria, AZ – March 7, 2018
This job is a good job if you are attempting to get work experience. It is not difficult. You learn to tend to customers as well as follow instructions from a superior. If you want to move up in the system to management positions, they will gladly put you on that track.
Sales Associate / manager in training (Former Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – March 2, 2018
At Big 5 a typical day was spent helping customers find products and answer any questions they might of had. I also had to unload the stores inventory truck every week. I also was responsible for cashier duties as well. The management was great they listened and helped the associates in anyway they needed.

If your good at sales and costumer support then this is a great company to work for. Very stress free and management is very helpful and professional at both training and helping you with any questions you may have.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Turlock, CA – February 23, 2018
management was friendly and caring. they understand workers needs outside of work. the only thing that i did not like about big 5 in general is the dress code. i am not the only one who thinks that big 5 employees should dress more accordingly to what the company is about. having to dress in slacks and dress shirts with dress shoes does not give the best impression that an employee knows much about sporting goods
Cashier & Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – February 19, 2018
With great management and staff the workplace is enjoyable and extremely productive each day. It does require great multitasking skills as you do have to juggle customers and your own projects simultaneously.
case pick (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – February 18, 2018
Good job I went from walking & picking shoes to walking & picking sports equipment. After 2 weeks they moved me to the electric pallet jack and had me picking weights. One of the best jobs I've ever had. I wish I didn't have to leave
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Nevada – February 15, 2018
I liked working with Big 5 until management switched up. Seems like ounce that happened all of my fellow coworkers just kept leaving. I'm not saying your experience will be like mine again I enjoyed working at the beginning. If the manager makes your life miserable than the job is no longer fun and appealing.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 15, 2018
Long days on your feet, no breaks, and poor management. Although the job itself was poor it did teach me skills in sales and communication as well as dealing with management and colleagues that made the job more stressful.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Aberdeen, WA – February 6, 2018
Working at the big 5 location I was at was very stressful. There were a lot of parts of the job that I did that was not included in my job description. And most of my co-workers were lazy and never did their jobs! I would be the only girl on shift and they men that were on management would deliberately wait for me to be free to make 200 lbs carry outs for customers because they were too lazy to do it.
dirty break room, a lot of work and not enough pay, poor management.
