    I worked at 99 Cents Only full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to make friends

    Cons

    H.R. is a MAFIA there. If they do not like you, they will fire you. Especially if you tell them when something is wrong. You must be related to someone in H.R. if you want to make it.

    Advice to Management

    FIRE everyone in H.R. and start fresh. Just like they did with CEO and upper management.

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

    Pros

    Make good friends.
    Its a job, I guess.

    Cons

    Too hectic and disorganized.
    Still considered part-time even though part time workers and full timer workers, work the same hours and do the same job--so no benefits for "part-time".
    Some of the management is lazy.
    Terrible pay for all the extra work cashiers do.
    Only get an opportunity for a "raise" once a year, but even then it's literally just pennies.

    Advice to Management

    Get your butts in gear and get the stores cleaned up and don't favor some workers over others.
