    I have been working at 99 Cents Only full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get 10% discount aside from getting good stuff

    Cons

    Company is desperate to hire Managers. Recently we had a Manager who had a so called 20 years of experience on retail that mismanaged the store so bad. He didn't know how to run the store. He has no respect to employees, his way or no way. Everybody was happy when he left.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not hire a Manager that has a so called 20+ experience but no personality and disrespectful.

    Interview

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only
    They made me wait in line with other people that were called. It was in an abandoned warehouse looking place behind one of their locations not at the store I was applying for.
