Very productive, and strict place
Floor Associate (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, CAJune 19, 2018
Customers complaining, I learned not to trust anyone in the workplace like that. The management is alright but a lot of rules there, there are not many enjoyable parts of the job.
Pros
Some co-workers are nice
Cons
breaks are too short, only 10 minutes

Cashier/Warehouse (Former Employee) –  Riverside, CAJune 19, 2018
Store was fast paced, but management was constantly changing from good to worse, making working in store a chore. Customers got to know me and expect me to be there and help then when needed.

Cashier (Current Employee) –  Garland, TX 75041June 18, 2018
They work with your schedule however any last minute emergencies such as family emergencies or personal emergencies will get you a write up if you don’t call them and if you don’t show up after the emergency is handled.They play favorites. They make you work more than you’re getting paid. Management is horrible.I would not recommend this job.
Pros
Get breaks, flexible hours
Cons
Lunch breaks are taken out of your checks

Inventory Associate (Former Employee) –  Rialto, CAJune 13, 2018
if you are looking for a job to start and try to move up you can work for the 99 cent store, not bad as a starter, you make good money to start and still go to school.

Just do what your suppose to type job
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Mesquite, TXJune 12, 2018
You clock into work and then go to the register you're assigned to. You simply just attend your register and make sure your area is tidy. Coworkers and management were fun to work with. The hardest part was probably rush hr times and just sometimes the customers.

Working here was stressful to say the least. I was overworked and most days was expected to perform the duties of 2-3 positions alone and without issue.

I would never do it again
Front End Lead (Former Employee) –  Rowland Heights, CAJune 8, 2018
They ask too much of their employees without enough reciprocation. Pay is not up to what it should be and benefits aren't great either. Shipments are killer and it can be backbreaking work.

not the best but still is a job
CASHIER/STALKER/FLOATER (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAJune 5, 2018
Being a cashier or floater can be hard when there's not much communication throughout all employees in the store. It can be fun when you get along with everyone but for all our job duties we do not get paid enough.
Pros
we get a 10% discount
Cons
we never get out at scheduled time
