    I have been working at Smith's Food & Drug full-time (More than 10 years)


    Pay is great, benefits are awesome, great discounts with Smith's and other companies too. Any type of job you want you can find it at smiths. I worked my way up by hard work, NOT by kisding up. Pay gets even better as you move up.


    Weekends, long hours, hard physical work, very demanding. You have to be a people person who loves to talk to people because customer service is expected or else. So if your not a people person, don't apply.

    Advice to Management

    Say thank you. It goes a long way. Coach and teach us how to do what you want us to by doing it yourself. (You want us to say hi-but you don't) Executives should say thank you when they visit us. We like that. Some don't even say hi.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smith's Food & Drug.


    They didn't ask especial questions rather than check the availability and review all your personal information and signing bunch of papers. Did drug test at store so no need to do it at other place and wait for the result.
