Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ballard, UT – March 19, 2018
A typical day is i clock in and go to the manager and see what they need me to do and i do it like i watch the front, stock shelves, pull tags, clean the bathrooms, take out all of the trash, sweep and mop the store, and clean the registers. I learned how to stock shelves, match the number on the item with the number on the shelve, use a box compacter, and unload freight. The boss and the managers were very kind and they did their job very well and when they told me what i had to do i did it with hast. their was no drama and it was an easy and great work experience. The hardest part of the job was having to watch the front, stock the shelves, clean the bathrooms and take out the trash at the same time. The most enjoyable part was being able to go on a 30 min lunch break and a smoke break every 2 hours.
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Orofino, ID – March 16, 2018
Very high stress due to being understaffed and trying to work as a full crew. Not paid equal to my co-workers. I liked working with public but was treated poorly by coworkers, who disrespected each other behind their backs.
i recommend working for Shopko. My management was great and i always had hours to work. i only left due to college and relocating. I never had to worry about needing a day off, they were very flexible and very understanding.

They have cut the giving of raises for all hourly employees for the last 2 years. There is no longer a company match contribution to the companies 401K. Insurance costs are high, over $1200 per month for family heath insurance coverage. Wages are not competitive at all for Sales associates. $9.00 in the Madison, WI market. Not a company I would recommend for any long term career.
Fairly flexible schedule except during the holidays
Freight Supervisor (Current Employee) – oregon – March 11, 2018
Shopko has been in business for 56 years however they sure haven't figured out how to run the company yet. They are wasteful and when you try to give them ideas on how to cut back on waste they tell you that it would cost too much in labor to save money. The managers don't communicate with the teams until they are telling them when they are doing something wrong. Proper training is a thing of the past. The blame game gets played a lot.
Great benefits, good people, comfortable pay.
Untrained workers, they don't drug test so the employee pool is a ring toss.
Various Positions (Current Employee) – Various – March 9, 2018
I did learn a lot working for the company, had many great experiences and met a lot of great people. But the overall environment has degraded quickly in the past year or two. I would highly recommend working for the Shopko of 3-4 years ago. I would no longer recommend it to anyone to work here.
receiving(truck- unloader /GM floor (Current Employee) – Green Bay, WI – March 7, 2018
Not a bad job, but I don't get enough hours. The people are nice and I do like working there. I just need to make more money since I will be graduating from high school and will be available for fulltime hours all summer and hours while going to college
Shopko Storage Team Member (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE 68138 – March 5, 2018
Got along with most everyone and it was a fun job, management and supervisor were a bit lackluster but not terrible. The job itself I really enjoyed if you like operating forklifts and whatnot and doing pretty physical work
Loss Prevention Specialist (Former Employee) – Marshfield, WI – March 4, 2018
Shopko is a good place to start. The atmosphere is good and the staff and managers are nice. The pay is low and the training you are offered is not much. Promotion possibilities are not real good but relocation opportunity is. The atmosphere is much easier going.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – March 2, 2018
Overall, this job wasn't the best experience in the workforce. The pay was low even though they were desperate for workers and there wasn't much proper training on the floor. Not sure if this was a single location issue or company-wide.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Union Gap, WA – March 2, 2018
working here as been fun at time. management some are good and some are bad. making a big deal out of getting credit cards after the holidays is a pain, you will be lucky to get 14 hours in a week, and no matter how hard you work if your not sucking up to GM you will not be promoted even if you know how to do the job.
