    Overnight Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hayward, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Big Lots (Hayward, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Applied to the store. One week late got a phone call and scheduled interview by the manager in the store. Interview took only less than 20 minutes. Experience in retail store, can lift 50 lbs etc. Background check thru online. They got a third party doing the background check. One and half week later, Got phone call to start. But as of now, scheduling is not clear. You have to call if you have a schedule to work.
