Anonymous Interview Candidate
Mc Kees Rocks, PA

I applied in-person and the process took 12 months - interviewed at Big Lots in August 2011.

Interview Details – It was really awkward and a really quiet interview. The manager who interviewed me barely asked me anything.

Store Associate Interview

Store Associate
Sonora, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Big Lots in September 2011.

Interview Details – I was hired as a Temp/Part Time to set a new store up, I was converted to Regular/Part Time after the store opened. The interview was less than 5 minutes and I was asked very simple job related and experience related questions and was hired on the spot!

Interview Question – School related question: I dont remember the exact phrasing but it was about a school project, if I had ever done one and what it was/how did I play a part/bla blah, I never took part in school projects as a group, It was always individuallly!   View Answer

Negotiation Details – When it comes to having limited experience, being only 21, you take what is offered. If I'd had more experience Id have felt more confident in negotiating, In fact I probably would have asked for Management!
