Get Experience and Move On

Stocker (Current Employee)
Rancho Cucamonga, CA

I have been working at 99 Cents Only part-time for less than a year

ProsA good starter job for high school kids and those who are not looking to advance.

ConsLow pay & alot of work - I work the graveyard shift stocking and get the same pay as the cashiers who do mostly nothing all day! I lift heavy boxes, bending constantly, my knees are calloused and ache and my hands are completely cut up and feel like sandpaper and the air conditioning is off per corporate's instruction... we beg the supervisor to turn it on for us. I got the same 25 cent raise that cashiers got... is that fair? It is not mandatory but it is customary in other industries to pay people who work the graveyard shift more per hour simply because the hours are grueling and the work is very physical.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote all employees... not just the bi-lingual or minority employees and, stop playing favorites!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
