    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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    10% off most merchandise at Shopko.

    Cons

    I was at Shopko for one year and what I saw was a company flailing. CEOs coming and going, buying organization running amok, no strategy, no planning, no processes.

    Advice to Management

    You've got to start looking beyond the next three months. Get strategic. Define Shopko as a brand. How does it fit in the declining retail sector? Invest in the stores, they are falling apart.

    Pros

    I guess it's easy to get hired.

    Cons

    So many company practices don't make sense. Every other retailer emphasizes customer experience and service while Shopko emphasizes cutting corners. From their in-store practices, eCommerce, and corporate culture, this company will do anything to save money as a short-term win and doesn't appear to have a long-term strategy. Impossible to move up in the company as they eliminate any position that opens up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving yourself bonuses if you can't afford to give employees a raise.
