    I have been working at Shopko Stores part-time

    Pros

    Shopko is full of friendly teammates with outstanding superiors and kind customers and in my personal experience my manager is so kind and easy to talk to which makes this a great environment to work in. My manager most definitely puts his customer service above all else which is a really great change of pace.

    Cons

    Personally, the only con that I have come across is that during the holidays we hire so many people that people start getting their hours cut significantly.

    I worked at Shopko Stores part-time

    Pros

    Really great employees especially those that are full-time. All changes are well communicated with the staff.

    Cons

    Training could be better for new employees. Would be nice to see all employees spend a week in each department just so they would be more versatile if other departments need help.

    I have been working at Shopko Stores full-time

    Pros

    Work life is flexible in the department I work in.

    Cons

    Systems and culture are very old, not likely to adapt new ideas or systems.

    Advice to Management

    Systems need to be updated. Marketing strategies need to be updated, the company is too traditional and will not succeed if they do not adapt soon.

    There is a lot of flexibility with scheduling. It is a fun environment to work in, even though there is a lot of work to do we can make it fun work as a team.

    Cons

    We do have a hard time finding teammates. There is always a lot to do and not enough hours to do it in.
