    I worked at ShopKo Stores


    There are nice people around you. The customers are pleasant to be around if u truly like your job.


    The work gets repetitive. So you have to really like what you are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not a lot of room for job advancement as in most retail or service jobs.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview on a Thursday morning. The recruiter asked questions about my previous work experience; nothing personal was asked. He seemed very disinterested with what I was saying. Toward the end of the interview I asked if there was anything on my resume that he questioned or that made me unqualified for the job and he said no everything looks great and I was qualified for the position. I sent a thank you email a week later since I hadn't heard from them and I got a template reply that stated I was not chosen for the position because I was not qualified(?). Very strange process and outcome.

Rather than a national jack-of-all-retail trades, Shopko Stores concentrates on a select product range in small and rural areas of the US. The company operates about 135 Shopko discount stores, five Shopko Express Rx drugstores, and a few Shopko Hometown outlets in about a dozen states across the Midwest, Mountain, and Pacific Northwest regions. It also sells goods online. Instead of offering a watered-down selection of many retail categories, it pushes popular, higher-margin categories such as casual apparel, health and beauty items, and housewares.
