Overall Reviews at Big Lots

It’s okay stay 6 months to a 1 year or you’ll really start to hate it.
Don’t get stuck there it’s really the other employees that make it worth it. 20% off the store isn’t that much. Mangers nice one day then rude the other

Good part time job with decent benefits
Training is taking testings on computer and being thrown right into action. You learn from mistakes. My assistant manager started a week after I. We learned together. In furniture department especially, the monthly secret shopper review can drive someone crazy. So stressful until it's happened. Great employee discount of 20% - 30% off and good P/T first job.

Unless you’re in the “circle”, it’s difficult to be recognized and appreciated. corporate Office atmosphere lacks authenticity. They say the right things but fail to live up to those words.

Good work experience
Nice store. Manager was good. Asst. Manager left a lot to be desired. Always gathered employees together at end of day just to speak bad of him. Which I did not care for. Ok fill in job.

Great coworkers. But not the best pay and we would have to have a lot of patience working there. So many rude customers. But overall the staff was very friendly.

Fun and friendly workplace
I enjoy my current employment with Big Lots. It is a friendly and casual place to work. It can be stressful when situations happen but if everyone on the Big Lots team work together it goes smothly.
ProsFriendly manager, normally requested days off approved
ConsUnder management doesn't do their job, Get in trouble for under managements jobs when they are not done by employees

Productive and cross diciplinary
Prior to frelanceing and contractual work, I was in several department stores and performed above average tasks. I'm very computer and tech savvy. I grew up playing the piano and I know how to handdraft. Everything falls into place in due time and i would love to have a desk job with some on the floor in the house duties as well.
ConsNo health care
