    I have been working at Big Lots

    Pros

    The health benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Managers have so much on their plate that managing the staff takes a back seat to keeping up with the merchandise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company just spent one more percentage point of profit on payroll the image of the company and sales would increase to more than compensate for this expenditure.

    I have been working at Big Lots

    Pros

    district managers and rvps more worried about"visits" than customers.....managers on power trip...company not sure of direction ...should it follow closeout path or try to be target....

    Cons

    no concern about employees lives...pay or safty...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you are making money now because of the economy....but your overall future is bleak if you dont stop foolish programs and look at emplyee relations
