    I worked at 99 Cents Only full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely lenient / relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    CMO unaware of the unfair departmental favoritism amongst other graphic designers who do little to no work and contribute nothing to daily operations or company growth.

    Advice to Management

    It is extremely unfair and belittling of employees who actually want to work for your organization to have to witness other graphic designers arrive to work in the middle of the day EVERYDAY, and leave early EVERYDAY. How is it possible that management allows this? How is it fair that a salaried employee works all of 4-5 hours a day and get paid as a full time employee does? Management is LACKING and needs to be revamped. This was one of the very things that sent me over the edge and ultimately left the organization to free lance.

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

    Pros

    A stable, successful company with a revived, start-up feel. Opportunities to grow are relevant throughout the organization (VP of Ops started as a store clerk). It's an exciting time to join the business; there is a buzz of creativity and process improvement in the works.

    Cons

    The company had a slump for a few years and the morale is still low for some groups of long tenured associates. You can see the positive change slowly but surely.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to remember the roots of the organization but don't let that hinder innovation or forward thinking.
