I worked at 99 Cents Only full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great co-workes and decent employee discount.

Cons

Poor pay rates, under industry standard as well as rats, mice, cockroaches and feral cats. They often hire people with obvious gang ties. Parking lot vandalism, aspestos, propane exhaust dust, theft, bugs, leaking ceilings, and improper working enviroments. Once came to work and there was mutilated dead kittens in the parking lot next to the employee entrance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put some money in the business.

    I have been working at 99 Cents Only full-time

    Pros

    The people In the stores are great might not have the strongest skill set however loyal, dedicated and striving tondo the right thing and drive the business.

    Cons

    There are so many cons!!! It begins with leadership or lack of. While some senior level mgmt is professional and looking to do the right things and make difficult decisions for the betterment of the company and the associates, many others are not professional and not focused on the good of the company or people but looking out for themselves and their own favorites! Operations is noting more than mafia, go against leadership and your done. It is not about ability or attitude it is about favorites and who is connected to operations leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need solid leadership in key levels, operations and human resources field level.
