Best co-workers I have ever had, we are all friends.....without the drama and backstabbing BS

Store Associate (Current Employee) Morrisville, VT

ProsMy co-workers are all awesome. The first place I have worked where the employees don't talk behind the backs of others and be sweet face to face.

ConsNo training at all..........For example.......the new seasonal employees don't even know how to clean a bathroom, myself and another associate showed them.Our assistant managers (we have two of them) make it obvious that they hate their job, to employees AND customers. The hours are nuts, one week I have 30 and the next I get maybe 12 to 18. I am not up for a review until May 2013 but have been told there are few raises and I will probably not get more than a dime.

Advice to Senior ManagementAt the store I work at I have been told by all my co-workers that if I hurt my back I will get written up for not asking for a team lift. This is BS, when most of the time I am told to just do it, or compared to others who are able to do it alone! Raises should be based upon performance and quality of work and these things should be rewarded with more money!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No respect or value for work - life balance.

    Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) Matthews, NC

    I worked at Big Lots full-time for less than a year

You will find that your… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
