    Not a bad place to work...if it's the only place you work.

    Front End Cashier (Former Employee)
    Oil City, PA

    ProsSatisfactory, training, time off policies were great, as well as the scheduled raised. I never was out of the loop, because everyone here was very helpful.

    ConsWorking around a second job. It was very difficult to get my schedule when it was needed, causing a lot of problems with my second job,

    Advice to Senior Managementit's very hard to get supervisors to work with another job schedule.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Perfect college job

    Deli Clerk (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsExtremely flexible hours, open door policy is very evident and encouraged, many team member perks, lenient attendance policy, many opportunities are given to move up if desired

    ConsHigh turnover in some departments causes frustration with long-time employees, as there is not one specific person to do training in most departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage department managers to chip in more work on a day-to-day basis, focus more on listening to team members rather than just focusing on how to reach weekly sales numbers.

    Definitely Intern there.

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsI learned so much from working there. The company and department were really hands on in my teaching. They also had a great internship program set up that allowed you to hang out with all the other interns from various departments. We also got to do a company wide project.

    ConsIt was a really far drive from where I lived, so it made commuting a pain. Other than that no complaints. They pretty much shoved you out the door when you hit 8 hours, so I was never over worked! :D

    It is an easy going job and fun to be around everybody that works there.

    Stock Clerk (Current Employee)
    Chardon, OH

    ProsExperiences may vary, but as you continue to work more and more, everybody becomes almost a second family.

    ConsThere is a lot of gossip that goes around and drama begins to start. Employees can be the down side of it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be more communication when handling with employee's schedules.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
