    I have been working at Big Lots part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing good about this job is really the discount and the friends I've made while working here.

    Cons

    They expect so much but don't want to give enough hours to complete the tasks. They also don't want to pay enough and in my experience men tend to make more. Unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and offer full time. The quality of work will be so much better so will the rate of turnover.

    Assistant Store Manager-Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Myrtle Beach, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Big Lots (Myrtle Beach, SC).

    Interview

    Applied on website was contacted by the recruiter. The Recruiter asked a few questions and then said he'd get back to me. After 7 days I got a phone call from the store manager asking to set up an interview with him and the dm. Normal questions asked during interview, it was more like a conversation than an interview. They were both nice and professional. Filled out the background check and left. Got a call back in a week with an offer.
