    I worked at 99 Cents Only full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities. Flexible scheduling available. Yearly salary reviews.

    Cons

    Corporate headquarters is located in a sketchy area of Commerce. Lots of semi-trucks to weave through just to get into the parking lot. Being "Cat-Called" was a "norm" while walking into the building.

    Advice to Management

    Move locations.
