Storyline

Slacker Zack Bradley works as a box boy at Super Club, a warehouse club store. It is the lowest in the job hierarchy at the store. He doesn't work very hard at his job, and along with some of his fellow employee friends treats the store like his playground. Regardless, he is well liked by most of the other employees. He used to be hard working, when he was developing a dot com, but he lost all his and his grandmother's money in the process. As such, he decided not to take any risks in life while he now lives with her so as to provide her with what he considers at least a more reliable life. On the other extreme is Vince Downey, who lords an air of superiority over his fellow employees as the store's head cashier. He lives to be the store's best employee solely so that he can be named Employee of the Month, which he has been named seventeen months in a row.

Ended up enjoying it
6 October 2020 | by Ryan_9See all my reviews

I enjoyed "Employee of The Month." I thought it was entertaining and had a fun plot. It made me want to work at Costco with all of them. Dane Cook (Zack) did a good job as Zack was a likable character and someone you could get behind. Dax Shepherd (Vince) was the show stealer as he was the funniest and played the rival employee great. I understand Jessica Simpson (Amy) was important to the plot, but she didn't act well and was a little annoying. Andy Dick (Lon), Brian George (Iqbal), and Efren Ramirez (Jorge) had nice supporting roles.

There were funny moments and great one-liners. Dax Shepherd and Efren Ramirez were hilarious together, and I enjoyed their constant bickering. Scenes that revolved around the competition between Zack and Vince only led to entertainment. Zack's friends had comical scenes too

Overall, I'll give "Employee of the Month" an 8/10. I didn't know what to expect, but I ended up enjoying it.
