How are the working hours at Big Lots?

  • Long long and long especially as a manager. Running furniture you basically work by yourself, doing 3 jobs or more. Selling, keeping showroom neat, tidy & dusted as well as making sure inventory is in. Customer calls, demands and wants. leases, credit cards, REWARDS card and Big Coverage to push (metrics) as well as helping DTS crew at many times. Definitely need more than a full timer and a part timer over there!

  • Sometimes 5 hours sometimes 12 hours a week . I use to get more hours before t since we moved to the new store they've dropped drastically . Normally this time of year hours were plentiful. Not so much anymore with DTS .

  • I've worked here for a year and a half. I'm on the third week of 10 hours for the entire week and applying everywhere in town.

  • At this time of the year your very over worked with little pay as well as hours, it's impossible to stock with the customers in the store at this time of the year so i think over night stocking would be helpful but no one wants to listen, and if u can make it on 20 or less hours a week this is the job for you.

  • No full timers are hired unless you’re a DTS or have worked up to a type of supervisor position, or key-holding manager. Instead way too many part timers. Managers are told to always be hiring (at least in my area) so everyone has a huge stretch for hours I’m averaging 12-18 hours. Also if you look up salary for all positions involved in big lot you’ll see every store position is 6-25% below national average but all the corporate positions are 15-25% above the national average.

  • Not good 17 a week.

  • Its typicaly 20 hours a week sometimes 17 and never the same its like some one put youre schedulle in a cup and shook it up the schedule has gone crazy.

  • Not good. Never know. 17 one week. 20 next. Not for a single person

  • Boring you get 4-6 hours a day.

  • I get 40 hours per week
