“I could not have imagined a more positive, insightful, challenging, phenomenal experience than my internship with Big Lots. I was constantly pushed outside of my comfort zone, which enabled me to grow in ways I didn’t realize were possible. My experience this summer helped me develop into a stronger leader, team member, citizen, and volunteer.” – Communications & Events Intern

“I was really pushed to learn and grow throughout the entire summer and on top of that, the work I did will actually be used and implemented. Also, the company culture here is second to none and really helped me find out what kind of people and company I want to work with in the future.” - Industrial Engineering Intern
