Sales Associate (Current Employee), Fort Madison, IA – March 9, 2014
Pros: good breaks, discounts, good people
Cons: healthcare, feels like little help when needed
I loved working at Shopko but it comes down to it I need a full time job to help pay for the bills that I have. I do love the people I work with and how it works around my schedule. I love the fact that this job lasted as long as it did. I love the fact the take my feeling into account and listen to what I have to say. For those that need another job – more... it will work as well as for those people looking for a first job and hope to grow. – less
Sales Associates (Current Employee), Park Falls, WI – March 2, 2014
Pros: great employees
Cons: less hours in winter months
Downfall is the late winter season is extremely slow and hours are drastically cut, which makes it virtually impossible to raise two children. Co workers are great and supportive and they schedule me according to my children's schedule.
Customer Service (Former Employee), Sidney, MT – February 25, 2014
Pros: free lunches, learn more about my job.
Cons: the manager always seemed to dissapear..
I loved working at Shopko it was a great experience. I worked with some great people and learned a lot about customer service. My co-workers were as nice as can be when I started there. The hardest part of my job was having yelling customers at me but, I was happy to solve there problem. I enjoyed giving the customers what they needed and letting them – more... leave with a smile on their faces. – less

Cons: the companies lack of respect
Loved my Job at Shopko... Love all that I worked with.. we were a family.. and all the customers were great.. I was always learning something new.. enjoyed working with my co-workers and seeing them everyday .. the hardest thing about the job was when Corp... told us we no longer had a job.. for a company to take the lively hood of 4 people away in – more... a heartbeat was wrong.. – less
Presentation Supervisor (Current Employee), West Bend, WI – January 31, 2014
A typical day at work went pretty fast, and enjoyable. I learned a lot with Shopko and how to handle situations better. I loved my co-workers, I felt like we had a Shopko family instead of it just being coworkers.
They treat the employees well. And they really show appreciation for you work.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Janesville, WI – January 15, 2014
Pros: good company to work for.
Cons: not always being familiar with registers, becuase you are not up there long enough to know everything.
I like working there, because the management really shows appreciation for your work. I really like that they keep you busy with something. You can really work as a team there, with the people in your area. Probably the hardest part of the job is when they call you off the floor to help at the registers. The reason I say this, is because you are not – more... always at the registers, and so when you do go up there, you are not always familiar with all the in's an out's of it. – less
Good work atmosphere with an amazing team. Difficult work/life balance
GM Manager (Current Employee), Hutchinson, MN – January 9, 2014
A decent place to work. I feel less engaged than I did at Target, but developed a great relationship with my team and my peers. There is no consistency with the schedule and I find it difficult to manage a good work/life balance. The company is well managed and I feel that I made an immediate impact. There are many opportunities for advancement and – more... I feel I have the capability to move up quickly within the company. – less
Not a bad place to work at but not the best either
GM Sales Floor (Former Employee), Boise, ID – January 9, 2014
I care not to review this company other to say that the store I worked at was horrendous with a few exceptions when it was good. A lot of bad things happened to me while I was there because of store politics.
