    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a job that's about it

    Cons

    Pushing so much merchandise that there is no room for. Truck come in 2-4 times a week after unloading there is little to no time to get product out onto the floor especially with only one person in each department. And if your stuff isn't on the floor quick enough then you get in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Give you people time to get things done.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers, 20% discount, holidays off

    Cons

    Disorganized, no communication, unrealistic expectations, underscheduled, overworked, underpaid, untrained! Lazy management.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to upper management would be to communicate more between each other AND your employees. Lack of communication between management and just zero organization or planning ahead. Also would like to mention the lack of training.

    I have been working at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    20% discount that I never use cause they only sell trash.

    Cons

    Unskilled managers, a lot of stuff gets said, but nothing gets done.

    Advice to Management

    Better training program for employees. Corporate should check in on stores more often and implement rules. Basiclly Ollie's just tosses you in the back and briefly explains that everything needs a sticker on it. After a few days your boss will be mad about stuff your not doing because you either didn't know how, or didnt know you should do it. Managers like to wait until you finish something to tell you, you did it wrong,...

    I have been working at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good co-workers, management who genuinely wanted to see you advance, slightly better pay than normal retail jobs, don't need further education to get into management.

    Cons

    The customers were horrible. No one respected the store because it's so cheap, so there was a ton of theft and messes to clean up.

    Advice to Management

    Pick better people to put into management. The management I had that were good were really good, but the bad was really bad.
