In the next step, you will have the opportunity apply to the position(s) that you've chosen. This application process consists of multiple steps designed to collect data about your experience, skills and interests, which will then be matched against current job requirements. If a match is found in the online preliminary screening, a Big Lots representative may contact you.  Please note that if you do not complete the application process and click "submit" at the end, your personal data will not be visible in our system.
