fun place to work. But scheduling was a big problem
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Saint Peter, MN – July 4, 2014
It was a friendly and warm place. But management was the biggest issue I had with working there. I enjoyed working with my co-workers. But the store itself seems to not be up and running as much as it should be
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Rockford, IL – June 27, 2014
Providing excellent customer service on a continuous basis. Ensuring all floor planagrams are prepared successfully. Hardest part was being a younger manager at the time so resistence from some of the tenured employees
fast paced working atmosphere that is very enjoyable
Sales floor Associate (Former Employee), Petersburg, IN – June 24, 2014
Pros: close to home
Cons: short breaks, lunches, company took advantage of a lot of employees
There was many different jobs I obtained while at Shopko. At one point I worked in the cash office. That included counting all the money that was in the safe and in all the tills. Then I would make the deposit and print off all paper work needed from the day before. I also worked as a key carrier, which also did the jobs of the cash office, but also – more... included opening and closing the store. Then I was the receiving specialist. That involved me checking all the vendors and products in and also out of the store. It involved a lot of paperwork that was needed too. Last, I was a sales floor associate. Responsibilities of that were running the register, always having great customer service, and cleaning as needed. – less

GENERAL MERCHANDISE SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Council Bluffs, ia – June 15, 2014
Learned how to use a forklift, most co-workers are fun to work with. Management is not the easiest a lot of them left and changed jobs themselves. Overall ok company to work for too many flaws and not much team work with some co-workers
Sales associate (Former Employee), Kennewick, WA – June 5, 2014
Pros: meet a lot of amazing people and gained customer service skills.
