    I have been working at Golden Pantry part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    friendly atmosphere, great learning experience, excellent management

    Cons

    schedule starts on monday and ends on sunday and you only know one week of your schedule, the pay woundnt be as bad if you could work full time but only the assistant manager and the manager works that so your stuck with crappy hours which arent even set in stone so if its a slow night your not gonna get the hours you thought, your accountable for your own register so if someone is using it wich they do to help you if they make a mistake you have to pay for said mistake, last but not least you get 1 employee drink (discounted drink) then you have to pay full price or refill price not to mention that if you just want a cup of ice you have to pay for a ice cup. also when training its a joint apperation so in other words it gets very confusing because one person could tell you you dont this part out every day but once a week so you dont but then you get in trouble for not cleaning them every day like apperently your suposed to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when you do that oreintation/training for new hires u need to get a lotto machine and have them practice before you send them off to the stores because the manual doesnt compete with hands on experience, also i sugest mabe having a chart of dutties assigned for the store clerks so we can check them off and what time so like when we make the routine coffee have a chart made and have us fill out what time and when we made it and sign it other wise we are wasting our time trying to figure out what has and hasnt been done and throwing out a perfectly good pot of coffee plus that way we are able to get more stuff done. there also needs to be like memo that goes out to the store clerks not just management when upermanagement comes in and decides to redecerate becuase sometimes managment forget to tell us this and were looking everywhere for something cause its not in its place wasting time and isnt time money? You also might want to either assign a person to each store to be the afficial traing person for the trainies because it get extremaly confusing for us trainies to be shown how to do something one day and told the next that thats not how it done the next by another person

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Golden Pantry in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    i got an application at the store filled it out at home then turned it in. a few weeks later i had forgotten all about the application when i got a call from the store manager to come in for an interview where i was asked about my work experience and general other questions then she told me that she would pass it along to her boss and then call me again to schedule an interview with her. i think a week later i called to check and see how my application status was coming along and she told me to come in for the interview with her boss i went in and her boss asked me basically the same questions she asked me and then said she would have my boss call me if i got the job and tell me the orientation info. i couple days later i called in to check on my status and she told me i got the job and the orientaion info.

    Interview Questions
    • the most difficult question wasnt really a question at all it was the second interview with the store managers boss she was a lot more intimidating but luckly for me my store manager really fought for me because she could tell i was a little intimidated.   Answer Question
