    Friendly, helpful

    Deli Clerk (Former Employee)
    Saint Charles, IL

    ProsEveryone was welcoming, like a family. Training was easy and helpful. The customers were also very nice.

    ConsAt times under staffed. Sort of took advantage of me being new, but I didn't mind doing to cleaning most of the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring great people to represent the store. I enjoyed it while I was there.

    Still a bagger...

    Bagger (Current Employee)
    DeKalb, IL

    ProsWork around schedules nicely, Weekly pay is a bonus, the staff is a full of college students who are friendly and easy going. Management for the most are easy going and reasonable. The work is pretty easy besides getting carts. 12 hour guarantee, decent part time job for college and high school students.

    ConsLimited to 12 hours that's about all you get unless it's a holiday you might get a few more. Favorites are played and pay us horrible. Part time employees are drilled with huge Union fees for the first 3 to 4 months of working there. No real benefits for part time workers besides 15 min breaks every 4 hours. They make you get carts in hot weather, a foot of snow, doesn't matter. And you better go pen your working with someone willing to go outside because your going to get stuck with getting all of the carts outside. Managers don't do a great job of distributing work and jobs evenly. I've been working hard my tush off for almost a year and still have not offered me a cashier job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit changing your employee policies every week on how to customer service better

    Great first job

    Department Head (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsHad a great time working here as a teenager. Moved up quickly and gave me confidence for the future. The pay was minimum wage and of course no very many raises to speak of.

    ConsTake advantage of younger workers. They will give you more and more responsibilities but will only give you a minimum raise. They make up for it by being super flexible in hours.

    Good First job

    Grocery Clerk (Current Employee)
    Aurora, IL

    ProsGuaranteed hours very nice people, opportunities to advance to full time, good benefits

    ConsUnion lets bad employees skate by by just showing up, bad employees hardly get punished, no accountability, have to pay union dues which is like $9 a week and may not be a lot to a full time employee but it is to part time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what your doing I know the union hardly lets you discipline bad employees but giving favor to the good ones is always nice.
