A productive store with good earnings
Grocery Stock Clerk (Former Employee), Calexico, CAMay 22, 2015
Pros: day off
Cons: no cons
A typical day working at 99 cent store was that always was something to do, its a store that sale a lot. The store in the mornings when opening get full. I learned there to be more patience than normal. my co-workers were very nice people. The hardes part of the job where when a customer got it mad for some reason, it was a little tuft to handle.

Help Desk Technician (Former Employee), Commerce, CAMay 22, 2015
The biggest draw back about working for 99 Cent Only stores is they are not very competitive when it comes to pay rate. The cultural was great and so was management.

Fun, Fast pace environment with friendly staff.
Stocker/Receiver (Former Employee), Rancho Cucamonga, CAMay 21, 2015
Pros: Good deals on food, employee discount, and friendly co-workers.
Cons: No pay for breaks and low amount of hours.
Start the day by breaking pallets or straight to stocking shelves. Organizing shelves to make room for more boxes and keep the area neat, clean, and displayed correctly. Friendly co-workers. Some managers were helpful while others were lazy and rude. Hardest part of job was getting everything stocked with the amount of time we had. Most enjoyable part of the job was definitely communicating and helping the customers. Got to know a few of the regulars and they were very friendly.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAMay 19, 2015
Pros: NA
Cons: hours were not very flexible
It goes from fast-paced to slow.
Lots of homeless people come.
Hardest part was dealing with rude customers on the daily basis with ridiculous request. like a refund on open hamster food.

fair
Produce assistant (Former Employee), Chico, CAMay 14, 2015
Pros: got in shape
Cons: managment and pay sucks...no room for growth
I liked the fast paced aspect of being in the produce department but the company as a whole is lacking. the management was poor and misguided. hours are slim to none while continually being cut due to sales being low. co workers were great but we all felt that we were treated poorly. hardest part was dealing with upper management but hey that's retail. and the heavy lifting in the produce deli section. but it gave me a great work out haha. most enjoyable part was getting in good shape due to all the fast paced work and heavy lifting....also quitting my job was pretty cool too hahaha

Pros: good hours
Cons: customers are rude, co-workers hostile, management barely there for you

Not the best place to work.
Head Cashier (Former Employee), Venice, CAApril 25, 2015
I would say that different parts of the job had both positive and negative aspects. Some of the good parts that I experienced were being flexible to accommodate school. Some of the negative aspects would be being taken for granted and the lack of positive reinforcement in the work place.

There's so much I could say about this company but I rather not.

I would recommend this company for people looking for a part time, temporary job.

Produce Associate (Current Employee), Paramount, CAApril 18, 2015
Pros: Gave me a lot of work experience
Cons: Too much favoritism within the work area.
A typical day would be me doing more the one job task. I managed produce/deli/fozen section while also helping out the rest of the store. Such as cleaning the restrooms, sweep the store, provide customer service, maintain the ware house, and also unload or load the truck.
I learned how to do some manager inventory and other responsibilities, provide excellent customer service, cashier, and manaveuring pallet jacks.
