assistant manager (Current Employee) – Ventura, CA – September 14, 2016
This place is fun to work at I enjoyed my 3 in a half years working with this company very fast pace and hands on. Always something to do and constantly have to be supervising employees. The thing about this company they lack care for their employees not only with raises but with poor equipment to work safely. Management could be very expecting of you instead of them doing their job and training employees, they assume and leave you to do a task they assigned you. Once finish with the task they yell and scream at you expecting you to just sit their and listen as they mistreat you. As an assistant manager i know it takes a good boss to lead employees, someone who coaches instead of demands. Someone who generates enthusiasm not issues ultimatums. Oh, with minimum wage being 10 an hour do you really thing a assistant manager should be getting payed 11.49? To me that just sounds unfair
Management, poor equipment, short breaks and lunches, poor pay for alot of work

This store was not my favorite place to work. They were rude and lazy and I wouldn't want to go back. My co-workers were also lazy and they wouldn't like to do their job. The hardest part of my job was when I got pregnant because they would forget about me and my breaks and then they would blame me for not reminding them. Management did not do their job when you needed help, they took a long time to respond to you when you called for them, which would result in our lines to get long and angry customers.

Must be a people person as you are greeting customers with a smile and pleasant attitude which I did do.....Must be fast and accurate on cash registers dealing with credit cards, cash, and EDD cards. I liked the job very much.....Very big turnover as people were quitting quite often. Management personnel would act like they didn't want to help cashiers when we had a problem....Co-workers were nice but some were lazy.Hardest part of job was dealing with customers who had attitudes and would take it out on the cashiers....Most enjoyable part of job was dealing with customers who were nice and polite and didn't take their problems out on us......

a typical day was always customer service, dealing with employees and typical closing and opening procedures. i learned how to work with others and time management. generally stores management was always willing to answer questions. all co-workers were very enjoyable and easy to work with. the hardest part of working at the 99 cents store would have to be some people in management. the most enjoable were the customers and other employees.

Working for 99 Cent Only Stores, was an overall stressful job that did not pay well for the amount of work being done. Nevertheless, the management and employees were awfully rude with other employees and customers.

My opinion about a typical day at this store is always being prepared for what the day brings to you, from the rudest customers to the sweetest people you'll ever meet. No matter what, you always got to stay positive and be professional. What i've learned was always work your hardest and in return you will success in life. The management at this store was pretty stressing, some were understanding and others were really hard on you. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the management team having their favorites and treating the rest of the employees less. Other then that, i really enjoyed working at this store and learning new things.
