Pros

Shopko is perfect for high schoolers, college students and retired people as the schedules are flexible and asking for time off is almost always granted and are always allowed to switch shifts. Our store was great about adjusting availablities and accomidating. Training for teammates is very good and detailed. "Star service" promotions are nice and used to give teammates rewards like gift cards for good work. There is a great system in place for freight, backstocking and filling. Employee discount is very nice to have.

Cons

Employees were praised but it was usually the supervisors that would praise teammates- not management meaning it wouldn't be remembered when yearly review time was up. Middle managers and supervisors get all the blame when things "go wrong" on the store level and the store manager hardly takes responsibity. Department specialists need more credit as they do a ton of work and develop relationships with customers.

Advice to Management

Give supervisors more credit because they're usually the ones doing the work and encouraging teammates. Let all teammates give imput on how the store does things and let teammates survey their managers.
