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

    Pros

    I just started at Ollies corporate office a little over one month ago. It's been a really great experience so far. Upper management is very helpful and they want to see you succeed. Everyone is willing to answer your questions. There is no disconnect between executives and regular employees which is really awesome. Executives are really easy to have conversation with. Very ethical work environment, great benefits, and...

    Pros

    Good employee discount. Easy to move up in the company as long as you put the work in.

    Cons

    Their is no care put into loading the trucks. They give you too much work and not enough payroll to complete the tasks needed. The pay is not competitive at all.

  3. "DON'T DO IT TO YOURSELF!!!!!!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Sales Associate in Hixon, TN

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

      Pros

      Plenty of hours because everyone was quitting left and right. 20% Employee Discount

      Cons

      Way too much freight and apparently no one could mandate how much was received

      Advice to Management

      Work on listening to your lower colleagues. They are associates but they are people as well. What management fails to realize is that their attitudes effect those below them as well, too man bad vibes coming from this company.

      I have been working at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet part-time for 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!

      Pros

      20% employee discount -insurance not bad for full time

      Cons

      RUN AWAY unless you are completely desperate! Terrible company to work for- no work life balance, freight driven with little to no payroll, regional director's expectations unrealistic,micro-management, terrible "raises" -expect next to nothing on annual reviews so ask for more $$ up front. Many, many TL's looking for other opportunities. Turnover is Horrible. Corporate may say they listen to concerns but does nothing...

      Advice to Management

      You're losing great people because you truly don't care about anything but the bottom line. Take care of your people and they will take care of you. Love Mark Butler(he's passionate about the company) but unfortunately so much has changed since he has stepped back and the company became public.
