    I worked at Big Lots part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone works together. Shifts were easy going. Weekly pay. Management was great. Training was efficient. The employee discount was a great plus.

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours are given for shifts and sometimes we were short staffed. That would honestly be the only two things in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    More hours would be really beneficial.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Big Lots (San Francisco, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online Friday afternoon, I received a call Saturday afternoon asking if I was still seeking employment (of course); so she told me to come in the following day at 2. I came, checked in, waited for about 3 minutes & was greeted by the assistant manager. Once we reached the back room, she asked me to tell her about myself. One minute later, “Ok so, you got the job!” Next thing I know, I’m filling out paperwork & watching 2 hours of a training video.
