    I have been working at Big Lots part-time

    Pros

    The people are incredible, I love working mostly because I'm ADHD, so I like a lot of movement!! And when I start something I try my hardest to get it done otherwise it drives me completely crazy.

    Cons

    There are definitely challenges but your team helps you through it, but if I had to choose one, it would be the rude customers, but everything else is great!!

    Advice to Management

    Yall are doing a great job!!

    I worked at Big Lots full-time

    Pros

    Hired talented people and trusted them to do their Jobs. Allowed for new ideas and innovations

    Cons

    Company grew to fast and scared upper Manager and they lost their focus. Company's growth stalled. New people were brought and it lost it's continuity. Just recently the seem to be work back to their root. I expect good growth in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on course of getting back to the roots of the company and get back to the innovations and ideas from everyone in the organization.
