bad company to work for, they do not stand behind their associates

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Columbia, SC

I worked at Big Lots full-time for more than 10 years

Prosi was with the co for a long time and it steadily got worse, between loss prevention micro managing every little thing and hr, not standing behind their store managers, its not worth it, some stores get away with doing whatever they want and others dont. it depends on who they like

Consthey will work you to death, no appreciation, hr does not stand behind there people unless it suits them, this co is rough and i would advise against working for them as i did,and they will just beat you down.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
