    Pros

    The company looks out for you, and wants you to be happy with your work. They also provide opportunities for you to work your way up.

    Cons

    The managers, though very friendly and helpful, tend to be incredibly lazy. They can also get on a bit of a power trip.

    Advice to Management

    Less standing around when things get busy, more actual hands on helping.

    Pros

    Employee discounts were nice, especially during the holidays. I heard good things about other employee benefits from the full time employees.

    Cons

    A few of the customers at my location were not very kind, but it was not an impossible situation to deal with.

    Cons

    -You get covered in the sludge and juice from raw meat and other oozy things
    -Everything is filthy
    -You are always hungry
    -You end up paying too much money for good food you don't need to buy
    -Customers can be a hassle if you are not completely and utterly attentive to their each and every need
    -Customers overshare their personal ongoings
    -Customers are fragile. They get upset quite easily.
    -The majority of your coworkers are teenagers (esp. teenage boys), elderly men and women, and handicapped individuals, making work slow and inefficient at times.
    -The beeping of the cash register will ring in your ears and haunt your dreams.
    -Frequent scrapes, scratches, cuts, bruises, broken nails, chapped elbows, and the occasional finger caught in machinery.
    -Parking lot duty (pushing 6-10 shopping carts through the parking lot and back into their designated area in)
    -No call/No show for a shift = immediate termination
    -Nine call ins or late days past the 15 minute "grace period" are allowed per year before termination

    Advice to Management

    Be more lenient with your call in policy. Sometimes bad stuff happens, and you need to understand that.
