Store Associate (Current Employee) – Manassas, VA – February 26, 2018
The day starts obtaining a cashier drawer , setting up my drawer. Cleaning the cashiers areas and front door of trash and or products. Greeting customers when we open and restocking as necessary and to cash out customers. We are short staffed due to budgets, so I work 1 day a week, at 4.hrs. Most of the associates are on an average of 1 day 4-5 hrs. within a 9am to 9pm store hours,
But I enjoy my coworkers we set-up, stocked and opened this store together and we all worked diligently. This store is a bargain outlet that obtains some products from major store warehouses and overflow stock. Purchase low, sale price sale lower.
I enjoy helping customers find what they need and are looking for no matter the item, unless the store does not carry the item.
They lie and tell you anything to get the store built then once a store built they let everybody go or they cut your hours down to nothing so you're f

Wouldn't recommend anyone to work here. Managers all say something different.I smelled alcohol on 1 of their breathe.Poor work hours. Can't make a living. It's really a job for first-time person getting a job for somebody retired who doesn't really need to work. Very hard work setting the store from bottom to top for only $9 an hour very poor pay.

constant promises with no action, the only company i see where being good at your job is a fail!! if you cant do your job you get advanced. if you are good at something... you get stuck there and never move up

No matter how bad you need a job DO NOT work for this company unrealistic demands of managers ( all managers not just team lead ) should you be so lucky to open new store the company asks you to work open to close 6 days a week ( 9 to 9 ) for 5 weeks CRAZY . ask just about any store manager that works there if they like it . the work load vs payroll not even close and very low pay for associates ,

Department Supervisor (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY 40219 – September 10, 2018
Management was terrible, short on help but would cut work hours, stock was behind but could not catch up because they would not hire help, worked overtime and did not get paid for it and they refused to do anything about it
my position involved setting up the new store with planograms, shelving, and stocking. After opening I worked in the book department and as a cashier

Overall I enjoyed my job and experience with Ollies. I helped them prepare the store for the new grand opening in Florence, S.C. I learned about planograms and gained new knowledge of the retail industry.
Constantly trying to stay organized. Very busy getting product to the floor in timely manner.

Cashier (Current Employee) – Leesburg, FL – September 3, 2018
Hours varied and team members not very friendly. They have really nice merchandise with a good selection of rugs and housewares as well. Management was quiet and there was not alit of training or company advancement
Department Supervisor (Current Employee) – Saginaw, MI – August 29, 2018
Lots of room to grow and promote for the hard-working. Very physically demanding job unless you are running register. Pay could be more fair, but is a great entry-level amount considering the speed of promotions. Dental and vision plans are a joke.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Canton, GA – August 27, 2018
Not a terrible job but not a great one either. Found myself dreading work due to standing right next to the clock and staring at it all day. If you want to switch to a new position you pretty much must suck at your current position. No matter how bad I wanted a different position, I was great at what I did so they didn't care.
Store Team Leader (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – August 26, 2018
I do not recommend. Poor and stressful. No support whatsoever from the upper management. Company Carrie's product that is out dated or will not last. If you dont believe me try it. Hopefully you will not regret it.
Lots of frustrated customers due to lack of staff whether people kept quitting or calling in for certain reasons. Lots of frustrated employees having to work on day off to pick up slack from others who clearly don't want a job.
