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

    I worked at ShopKo Stores part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Store discount. Good hours. Training was excellent.

    Cons

    Compensation's not great, and my supervisor had no respect for the employees under her. When it came time for a raise, even though she had not been 'supervising' me, and had no idea what my work ethic was like she decided I could work harder and gave me the bare minimum. Management had no respect for a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure your store managers aren't taking advantage of the system and are actually supervising.

    I worked at ShopKo Stores full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

    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.
