    Pros

    Get to experience a lot of new things it's a whole me and I really do h hope I'm doing a good job I'd like to think I am.

    Cons

    Trying to learn new jobs in the department I'm in, not enough time spent on training someone before you are just thrown into it very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to listen to all complaints no matter how big or small you think it is, it means something to the person who is bringing it to your attention.

    Pros

    Flexibility and hours are usually good. Gave me great work experience. Helps build resume. Good if your a student.

    Cons

    The pay isn't fair if you begin in the store, its probably best to come outside into an office position. I began as a cashier at about 7.50 and after about 3 years I moved up to bookkeeper and my ending pay is only 8.50, where as if I came in it would have been way more. Also the bookkeepers should be making about what Customer Service managers make ( since we handle all the money and they just deal with customers and do western unions) I believe it is only fair.

    Advice to Management

    They should help get raises that are fair to everyone and not only to their favorites.

    Have to prove yourself if you want a chance to move up the ladder.

    Pros

    room for advancement, employees benfits

    Cons

    some selective employees seem to be able to slack on their work, and nothing is said. the ones that do there work seem to get discouraged because of it.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time there, everyone is very helpful and nice. Teamwork is pushed and it's nice to feel like you're part of a team.

    Cons

    The pay is low but compared to other supermarkets it's actually not that bad. Raises are hard to come by though but that is pretty standard I think.
