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

    Pros

    Great discount , management was awesome they try and accommodate your requested hours. Great place to work

    Cons

    They try to put to much on the floor at one time when there is no room. So they wind up sticking it wherever it will fit then customers cannot see what there is because there is just to much out

    Advice to Management

    If store was not cluttered by employees having to so much inventory out. Customer might respect store more. Other than that my MANAGERS WERE GREAT MATTHEWS NC
