Started off fine plenty of hours, opened new store. Then hours kept dwindling. A lot of times, not enough people in the store to support it. Kept getting menial jobs, Cleaning bathroom, meeting rooms, but nothing productive.

the management was great and very helpful. It was a medium paced job with comfortable work scheduals. Unloadind trucks was easy and stocking shelves was easy. The staff was overall friendly and kept the store in great shape.

Your job duties at Big Lots are to run the cash register, stock shelves, recover the shelves, and assist the customers. The lead manager at Big Lots is flexible and worked with me between having college and working around my LPN job but his attitude is negative. He has said some very inappropriate and mean things to his employees which make working there less appealing.
Productive and awesome work place, great team member and management.

The staff is nice. You only get christmas off.You won't get 40 hours per work. The training could be better. Be prepared to learn most of it on your own. Also you will end up working in every area of the store. And women do help with the heavy furniture .

It was a fun place to work with about half the managers being awesome and the other half just being misrable. The problume lyes with the fact the dm will let a manager get away with anything they will always side with the manager never the lowly employee.

Store Manager (Current Employee) – Sedalia, MO – April 19, 2018
not enough time allocated to do tasks in time allowed, no support from HR department. Micromanagement, underpaid employees, raises are not adequate. I loved working with my customers and employees, but no support from upper management.
