    Pros

    They hire anyone. As long as you are able to get in contact with one of the managers, and your application received a "smiley face" online and get an interview, they can't not hire you. It's especially easy if you know someone in the company and out their name down. Everyone in the company seems to be nice for the most part. Depending on your union contract, you eventually get dental, vision, medical and Rx benefits, vacation pay and sick/personal pay (even part-timers).

    Cons

    Minimum wage with raises according to union contract. They are ALWAYS cutting hours and expect everyone to work extra hard to make up for the lost work. They are such a cheap company owned by Ahold, a company from somewhere in Europe and they do everything they can to cut down costs. Especially store managers, so can receive their bonus at the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to corporate so much, try to think outside the box a little and form your own opinions for once. You all just agree to everything they say without even questioning it, even if it doesn't make any sense at all. Grow a pair.

    Pros

    Paid fairly, worked a decent number of hours.
    Some great people worked in the store.
    Employee points for money off purchases.

    Cons

    Cashiers were not given enough trust. Issues that I could have easily resolved myself took far longer than necessary because the system only allowed supervisors to input certain commands, which only made customers extra frustrated.

    Customers weren't always easy to deal with, especially when you had to seem happy for all of them.

    Little room for advancement. As a cashier, your best bet was moving up to a Self scan or eventually a CDH position. These were effectively picked fairly arbitrarily, and once you hit CDH you essentially hit the ceiling.

    Towards the end of my time working there, hours were being cut left and right.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving everyone hours.
    Continue to hire nice people.

    Promote people on their merits.
    Give cashiers a higher level of trust. The more they can do, the more satisfied employees will be.

  10. I really like this company all of the people there are so nice and it's a great place to work
