    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only (Sacramento, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. No experience is needed. Pay not good. You first have a phone interview, then a in person interview. If the manager likes you you'll get the job.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only (Santa Ana, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty laid-back, interviewers were District Manager and HR Manager. Asked pretty basic questions like why do I want to work here, if I've had experience as a cashier previously, and an example of a difficult situation during my previous job that I successfully dealt with.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only (Cypress, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy yet stressful, I expected the process to be more but it was strangely vague and open, few if barely any questions for the interview, as the store I was applying to was still being built and anything really went. Hired on the spot.
