A great experience for first time employees
Floor Associate/Cashier/CSS (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 27, 2017
When I first started at Big Lots, I didn't have that much experience in retail, but as I started working my way up from a floor associate to css (customer service specialist), it felt like a great accomplishment. On the flip side, you really have to work efficiently to receive recognition. Most of the managers and co workers were very nice and helpful. When I was a CSS, I did get a pay upgrade but unfortunately I wasn't able to receive the proper benefits because I was part time. Later on before I left, the css job title no longer existed, letting cashiers be able to do returns. Thankfully they did not down grade my pay because of the change.
