Workers Comp Claim

I stayed with Shopko until 6/23. I am curious if anyone knows who I can call to get a previous workers comp case closed from 2009. This was due to an injury on site. I am having issues with Medicare due to it still being open.

Where's my severance?

It looks like the court actually approved the corporate severance package, where's mine? I was assured from my DM, HR and signed a contract. How is it not fraudulent/criminal to take $179 million from an insolvent company? They caused 15,000 to lose... —  read more

Our store is a ghost town

So many people have already left, that it's getting much harder to actually do anything. I'm not sure how they plan to keep going for another week, not to mention until June, if it continues like this. But it's not as if anybody cares, or so it... —  read more

Severance Agreements

I worked at the West Bend, WI store and closed on April 22nd. That very day, we got an email saying that Phase 1-3 stores (that got and signed off on the severance agreement paperwork) will for sure be getting them. Phases 4-7 won't. Strangely, our... —  read more

Still in shock

Am I the only one who is still in shock over this? The only one who really didn't expect this will be the end for the entire ShopKo? It's not even about losing my job, I'm not worried about being able to find a replacement soon enough, I just didn't... —  read more

Severance eaten by taxes?

I worked at Shopko for about 8 years in Provo Utah. Don't take the severance deal if they offer it you will regret it. After taxes it amounts to almost nothing you would be better off just collecting unemployment. Is this true? Don't you get most of... —  read more 

As we get ready to move on...

When will this end?

Will we ever be able to relax again and actually do our work, or will we have to continue worrying about our stores and whether they will be closing this or the following month for good from now on? We used to have job security at ShopKo. We used to... —  read more

Here we go

Shopko filed Chapter 11. Not that this comes as any surprise to any of us, we saw this coming miles away. What I'm worried about now is how this will affect severances for both stores that were already been announced to be closing and those that will... —  read more
