    Good first time job - Fresh Market (Store #151)

    Current Employee - Stock and Cashier in Midwest City, OK

    I have been working at Braum's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Decent amount of hours if you're not in school and make yourself available for just about any shift
    - 15% discount on anything in both the restaurant and fresh market, mostly useful on Thrift baked goods and stacking on top of Store Deals (I.E. 2 for $6 ice cream 3-pints)
    - Payrate is above minimum wage -- goes from $8 to $8.75 over time
    - (Personal) Closeby to home, just a 3 minute drive or 25-30 minute walk
    - (Personal) friendly coworkers who generally like and dislike the same managers as you, interchangeability with those in a similar position to you (I.E. I have 2 coworkers who perform the same duties as me about as well as I do and thus I can give them some of my hours or a whole shift)

    Cons

    - Customers can get overwhelming on holidays and truck-days, where 6+ people all slam in line on one register at the same time
    - Upper management will pin problems on you if you happen to be around at the time
    - No free breakfasts or lunches, no free coffee
    - Expect to not get a lunch break every so often if you work Fresh Market, whether due to being the only cashier there or due to working from morning to 1:30 (no one can take a break from 11 to 1:30, and more often than not the manager(s) take care of the restaurant employees first)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace one of the registers with a self-checkout enabled system to help on busy days or when only 1 cashier is available. Allow employees to at least eat at the register if they cannot be given a break. Consider replacing rusted or broken equipment rather than waiting for it to fall apart entirely at the seams; several metal bunkers have literal rips in them and should be considered a health hazard putting even packaged food on them, shelving for ice cream squares are lopsided and don't provide adequate spacing for how many ice cream squares we receive.
