I have been working at ShopKo Stores full-time for more than 10 years

Great for an independent worker, self-starter. Very little micro management of your time.

Lack of consistent raises and performance reviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Thank your employees once in awhile. Tell them good job, well done, etc.

    Pros

    If you grew up in the area and are local you will receive favortism, especially if management attended high school 40 years ago, with your father.

    Cons

    Blatant favortism. Leaving a shift at 10PM to return at 5AM. Not being paid for time spent sitting in your car, up to 10 to 15 minutes while closing manager calls alarm company to confirm Shopk buliding is fully/properly armed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delavan store needs store manager to take off blinders to see how poorly upper management staff treats employees. Customer service/apparel manager treats employees like they are cattle/pack mules especially when unloading weekly truck. Supervisors are not encouraged to be innovative and are basically puppets of store manager. No yearly hourly or salary increase for employees in 2014, yet told to expect to work even harder than 2013.

    I worked at ShopKo Stores part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free food sometimes if you're lucky? Some nice people.

    Cons

    The management at the store I worked at was bad. They weren't friendly to me and cared more about what I got done versus treating me like a person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek a different field of work where you're not dealing with people.
