    Pros

    Great pay. Supervisors were always nice (probably because my dad was their boss...). Good benefits and I was able to do different jobs everyday so it wasn't too monotonous. When I wasn't a cashier, I loved my job. Able to work every other weekend so I was able to attend school and keep up with sports.

    Cons

    Not able to connect with customers because you have to treat them like a number because of the strict numbers that you have to make while cashiering.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a more personal experience for the customers and more will come.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Woodman's Food Market (Sun Prairie, WI) in May 2014.

    Interview

    You hand in your application, the manager glazes over it, and then they set you up for an interview. This brings into question the reliability of potential employees. After that point, you have an interview with the manager who basically tells you about the job and the policies of the company. In my case, they interviewed me and then proceeded to tell me that there was no position available but that they would call when there is an opening. Once you get "hired" you are put on a 45 day probation where very minor things can result in your termination.

    Interview Questions

    • Having to do a basic math quiz before the interview was very strange. This quiz is essentially meaningless since they'll pretty much hire anybody. I "passed" the quiz, yet some other guy who failed it was still hired an training alongside me, therefore supporting its uselessness.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. They tell you everyone starts as a Utility Clerk, the pay is non-negotiable, and in my case they lie about the amount of hours you receive.
