Fast Paced Environment with no SOP'S
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 19, 2015
Pros: Not many
Cons: Long hours and super hands on
As a manager you will work long hours and be short handed of associates, so you will have to pick up the slack. Also forget about having family time. You belong to the 99.

Floor Team Member (Current Employee), Glendora, CAAugust 18, 2015
Pros: They work with your school schedule
Cons: short breaks, no room for pay raise, inconsistent hours, some managers are really difficult to work with
The 99 Cents Only Stores is a good place to learn about retail because the managers give you a lot of work that needs to be in done in a short amount of time. On top of that, you have to provide good customer – more... service to all customers that need your help. I learned how to recover, stock, provide customer service, and front merchandise the right way. I have good and supportive co-workers here. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with customers. The hardest part of the job is when the store is a complete mess and we are short-staffed the amount of work is extremely high. – less

Customer Service/Cashier (Former Employee), Mesa, AZAugust 17, 2015
Pros: It paid
Cons: everything
Hated this job. Employees were rude. Customers were ghetto. The shop smelled bad. It was one of my first jobs and I wouldn't be caught dead even shopping there. Everything is shipped from Mexico, way to support the U.S.

Fast pace envirnmont
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Brea, CAJuly 19, 2015
Pros: overtime, and double time adds up really quick with the hours we work.
Cons: No work/life balance, Not much recognition for the good that is being done but the bad is recognized constantly.
A typical day is well, very hectic. If your not running around because you might have a regional/dm visit, then you are running around because you do not have sufficient help in store to complete all the – more... tasks that need to be completed. Working 12/16 hr shifts well there is no real work/life balance which can be really hard at times. I have learned a lot from this company, both good and bad but do not plan on staying since they basically want you to live there. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Tucson, AZJuly 17, 2015
99 cents only stores is a good place to gain work experience. Very friendly people. You can learn customer service skills if are not use to work with people. If you have a lot of customer service experience you might find a higher pay job somewhere else.

Cashier (Current Employee), Stockton, CAJuly 14, 2015
ON any typical day you start by walking the floor, this consists making sure the bathrooms are clean. Walking every isle and picking up merchandise and putting it on shelves. If there is a spill then you – more... call it in to cashiers who send someone to clean it up. Then you head to the registers, are assigned a register for that day and begin helping customers checkout. Answer any customer questions, if i didn't have an answer then i asked someone who i knew would know the answer. The hardest part of the job for me was matching speed and efficiency. – less

Was a great experience being an Assistant Manager
Asst. Manager (Former Employee), Palmdale CA & Norwalk CAJuly 13, 2015
Pros: Great benefits and pay
Cons: Upper management's outdated and biased mentality of promoting
The best part of my day was not telling employees what to do, or delegating tasks to them, but the interaction with customers. My sole job was to provide them with the best shopping experience and I did that and more. I established a first name basis and a kinship with a lot of different customers and in turn they became loyal and regular customers.
