Front End Lead (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 16, 2017
Managers seems to only care for them self and the ones that work hard are the ones that fail. Some of the managers feel because they get salary pay they don't have do any thing they only stay two hours of day and stay in office on there cell phones and talk to there friends about the next dinner dates.
Their are manager that lost there keys three times and never report it and never got in trouble for it but let a person call in and say they are sick or going to be late you will be in trouble the next day you come or might even suspended.

The 99 is an ok place to work for those who are in school. Part time will totally help out to those in school. But as in other wise i think it sucks for those who are not in school so they dont have to deal with such low pay and short hours in the week.
I loved working for 99 cents only store because of the very balance i needed for school. If i had any after school programs during my senior of high school they would work with me. I loved the culture mixing of the store and company. Made great friends
Good if you are just looking for experience and dont have a family or life
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – October 1, 2017
This job is not for everyone. Very hard hours. Very stressful. Upper management has unrealistic expectations given the hours they give. The turnover is crazy high so they are constantly hiring. Sick calls are out of control. Recruiting people for this job is extremely hard and ok one is given enough hours to live. Stealing is contant and there is no way to stop it. In short, not worth the headache and stress.
Long work day, turnover, low quality employees, stress
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Ventura, CA – September 25, 2017
Work environment was horrible, stressful, poor pay, managers taking advantage of employees, no fair pay, no vacation paid off, or sick days. If sick or running late automatically hours where cut. Just Horrible !

It is very busy you have to learn how to deal under pressure and be a quick learner and problem solver. Management wouldn't always come when called and didn't give breaks and lunches on time some managers would but others wouldn't. Overall the work experience is good you just have to learn how to adapt.
