They did it again 2/17/23

75 more corporate employees laid off today. Here’s an idea .. lay off all the VP’s and extra upper management who do nothing but sit in meeting. They are so ridiculously over staffed in upper management. They are the ones who really have no value... —  read more

Are holiday layoffs to be expected from a company pushing managers to hire 16-year-olds to replace older workers?

I can't believe holiday layoffs arent around the corner as budgets and hours are cut, and the latest trend is to hire the youngest part-timers possible (the memo specifies a target age of 16!) to avoid offering even the most meagre, basic health... —  read more 

Fewer customers, fewer sales

I'm starting to worry that we might be headed towards closing for good. Our numbers haven't been good for a while and they're certainly not improving. To make matter worse, two managers have left in the past couple of weeks, which makes me think they... —  read more

Thanksgiving "Thorn" Style

The SILENCE from the CEO office in Columbus is deafening. No response to the announcements from Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowes, and many others, that they will be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. Bruce's 1400+ Big Lots stores will... —  read more

Stock falling

Wondering how the recent drop in stock is going to affect more layoffs? They have already cut hours to nothing. I'm concerned what is next in operation north star now.

Wave two has begun

I received the call on my day off, at home. A conference call letting me know that today is my last day of employment with the company. They sent some documents to my email after the call and it included a chart of severed employees, no names given... —  read more 

tossed aside

After years with the company I was called into an office and told over the phone that they had restructured the stores and that my job no longer existed. I was to turn in my keys and talk to no one in the store about it. No Thank you for my years of... —  read more

What was the reason you were given!

For anyone that was lay-off from Big Lots on Monday 7/29/2019 what was the reason given? Kinda a childish move to talk over the phone instead of talking face to face about being let go. Thanks for all you do for Jennifer but you didn’t do enough

Junk Lots

As someone that was wrongfully let go a few years back, I sympathize with everyone. I’m sure if I was still there that I’d be one the ones getting a phone call. I gave years to company, blood, sweat and tears. I wasn’t until I was forced to find work... —  read more 

wrong people let go

My assumption is that the company let all the assistants go and then re-invented their jobs at lower salaries to save money. If money is the object then how is it that we ran on strict hours, got threatened with a write up if we went over, but when... —  read more 

More to come

Don't get complacent people, everything points to this being just the beginning... If you have a chance to leave on your own, now's the time to grab it. I already started looking, and I'll sure be leaving this place the first chance I get. The... —  read more 

Laid off Today

Worked at BL for 7 years was called on the phone and "let go" following a conference call today. Told the ATLS (worked at BL for less than a yr) is now going to be furniture manager and STL is over furniture. What a joke?!?!

C-ap lots

They let hardworking assistants go so they can reinvent the same role in some of the stores with a much lower salary. Ironic that they let go people who had done nothing wrong but kept a district manager in a major southern city market even though... —  read more
