Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Campbellford, ON – September 15, 2013
Most shifts I would just be a cashier, I would open the store and get the tills ready for the opening time.I really learned how to deal with dissatisfied costumers and how to resolve those situations. My co-workers became friends.They best part of the job was knowing that your fellow co-workers were there if you needed the extra help.
Contract assembler (Former Employee) – London Ontario – July 27, 2015
I was lucky enough to get into a position they considered a contract by the end. I was able to set my own hours and based it on the workload so if I was not working, I was not there. They showed an interest in safety, which was nice and I would likely still be there despite the pay not being great if they had not closed and moved everything under the Big Lots banner, back to the USA.

Customer Service-Store Associate (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – February 9, 2015
I have always being on time for my shift and come in the store I was ready to work hard. At this work I learned how to do display a product, and merchandise from diagram how it was pictured. I was getting along with others very great and smiling towards customers. The hardest part on the job was that I couldn't assemble a furniture together but I asked for help on it . I enjoyed greeting customers and helping them out find items what they were looking for answering to their questions.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – January 13, 2015
The job it self was productive lots of physical labor. We had to pick order for stores. The management wasn't very fair they had friends working there or their family and they were favored. The co-workers where always gossiping or sleeping with everyone. The hardest part of the job was listening to everyone complain about each other. The most enjoyable part of my job was when I did independant jobs alone.
to much favoritism to many family and friends worked there
I enjoyed the people I worked with and it kept my bills paid for 8 years.
Head Cashier (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, Maple Ridge and Mission, BC – October 1, 2014
I did cashiering and merchandising Diplomacy is what I perfected Most of the managers I worked under were great. I enjoyed my co-workers enormously To stay out of confrontations between customer and co-worker, was the hardest part of my job. I hate it when a customer complains about a co-worker that has bent over backwards to accommodate said customer. The most enjoyable part of the job was the customers, the majority if them are great and of course my co-workers. And actually the work could also be fun, just how you looked at it.
Customer Service/Cashier (Former Employee) – Dundas Street East, Trenton Ontario – September 10, 2014
A typical day at Liquidation World was to stock shelves, but mostly be on cash and help customers find what they needed. I learned how to count till, how to stock items properly, etc. The management there was great, they were understanding of my schedule that I had with volunteering at the theatre. The hardest part of the job was probably counting the till, because you can always be off, however it was quite easy to do. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with customers that were willing to receive help to find what they were looking for.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – September 8, 2014
Working here was just something to do to pass time. The job itself was not difficult in anyway. The hardest part was probably the constant rearranging of the store or moving the heavy objects out the doors such as furniture. For the most part my coworkers were a bunch of friendly people who wanted similar things i did, work to pay for school, support the family etc. It was a fun time and I miss them greatly.
Cashier/Merchandizing (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – August 26, 2014
LW was a very slow paced, repetative job. My co-workers were friendly for the most part, as well as the management. The higher management outside of the warehouse were not very friendly. The hardest part of the job was pleasing the management as they were constantly changing what they wanted the our staff to do and never seemed to be pleased with the outcome. I learned how to smile and be nice and pleasant, even to those who were not nice or pleasant to me. Unfortunately, the most enjoyable part of the day was closing at night time.
short hours, unappreciative management, rude customers.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Courtenay, BC – July 21, 2014
usually started work at 9 and would spend the first half hour before the store opened, doing some prep work to make sure the store looked good. Every Day was different and I liked that part. I never knew what I would be doing that day so that kept me ready for anything. Management was fair and treated everyone as they should be treated. Tried to keep the mood and morale up if we were having a rough day. Co-workers were all pretty easy going and fun loving people. They made it very easy to get though the days working.
