    I have been working at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff truly is a team, and management really does look after employees. Twenty percent employee discount helps out a lot! They also hire above minimum wage, which is really helpful.

    Cons

    It's tough to make full time, as it seems to be based solely on seniority, not a combination of seniority and who works hardest. I plan to stick around awhile, though!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet (Columbus, OH) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Normal two interview process. If the first interviewer likes you, you go on to a second. Basic background check needs passed before being hired. Try to use real life experience when answering questions and make sure the answers make sense.
