    I have been working at Busch's part-time

    Pros

    When I worked there, the process for switching shifts was really flexible and that made it easier to get important days off of work without trouble. The offer incentives for working evening and weekend shifts. They reward consistent attendance. The work atmosphere at my store was very friendly. The majority of our customers were really great people.

    Cons

    Most cashier positions are strictly part-time. It can be a little difficult to make sure you got scheduled for the right number of hours you were supposed to be. Regular pay raises were not easy to come by (many people hadn't been given a raise in multiple years). Particular co-workers sometimes had attitude or teamwork problems. There's too few opportunities to move around and away from the register for a moment to stretch and keep your circulation going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees matter. They really matter. Make sure you keep paying them like they matter. Make sure that you listen to them like they matter.

    Cashier/Service Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Busch's in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an online application. I didn't hear from them for about a week, so I called in to inquire about my application. They invited me in for an interview set for a few days later. Once I got there, I was interviewed first by the Front End manager, the woman who oversees the cashiers and service clerks (service clerks are the baggers, cleaners, etc.) She asked me several "what would you do in this situation" questions, reviewed my resume and spent time explaining the job. I was then interviewed by the Store manager. He spent an hour asking me more "what would you do" questions and went in depth about the history of the store and its mission. I was hired on the spot and scheduled for an employee orientation held a week later. The orientation was about two hours, maybe more. There were about thirty new employees, separated by the store location they were hired to work for. We got our uniforms, filled out a lot of paperwork, signed the contract, and spent an hour discussing Busch's mission. Very long. Very boring.

These Buschs have built a slightly lesser-known family empire than that built by the Georges (Sr. and "W") and Jeb. Family-owned and operated, the company operates about 15 Busch's food stores in and around Ann Arbor and Detroit, Michigan. Nearly 10 locations house pharmacies. To save time, customers can shop for groceries and refill their prescriptions online. Busch's also offers cooking classes and catering. The company was founded in 1975 by Joe Busch and Charlie Mattis as J&C Family Foods. Today the regional supermarket chain is run by company president John Busch... More
