    I worked at 99 Cents Only full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get motivated to find a better job asap.
    You learn a lot about California Labor Code (special attention to breaks/meal periods, mileage reimbursement, overtime and such).
    You become quite handy when you fix the company's property.
    You get paid like you've never been paid before.
    Minimal (if any) raises help you to live a humble life in today's consumer-driven world.
    Your achievements and leadership are nothing comparing to your friendship with boss (friends matter kinda thing).

    Cons

    I have been working at 99 Cents Only part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Easy job.
    Other employees are helpful.

    Cons

    THe employees here aren't treated. that nice. There's no incentive to preform your very best. No "great job today," from the managers not even a "hi." I'm used to management/employee friendly relationships; not being ignored when I don't need help. I've got 2 new job interviews with different companies this week. Am ready to quit this place after only working for two weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way you train your managers. Treat floor staff and cashiers with the respect they deserve.
