    Pros

    A very strong corporation with values for both great customer service and rewards for employee loyalty.

    Cons

    The customers are not always the nicest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! Have been very successful in turning this company from failing to another great company with the ability to buy others. Fantastic job!

    Pros

    The head floor supervisor is wonderful, they really worked with my schedule and wanted me to be happy with work.

    Cons

    The upper management was not the nicest to anyone. Current changes aren't the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit going the wrong way with your changes. The customers/"guests" and employees/"team members" hate it.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Clerk in Wiscasset, ME

    Pros

    flexible schedules, opportunities to work in different departments, employee discount, easy to take time off. I have worked here through high school and college and it has been easy to keep this job and leave and come back as I needed to with no hassle. employee appreciation days/rewards.

    Cons

    Low pay, store really depends on who is running it and that decides the happiness of the employees, some managers do nothing and don't get involved and others will work you to the bone. New company implementing ways to save money but backfires (limiting number of bags we can use when they can barely hold 5 items anyway).

    Pros

    As a high schooler I made a decent wage a couple dollars above minimum wage. After proving to management my strong work ethic I was able to get more hours.

    Cons

    In order to advance you do not need a strong work ethic you simply need to be friends with upper management. My boss offered me a position in the warehouse about five different times, I accepted every offer yet he never moved me to the warehouse he always hired someone a week or so later from another store he was friends with. My hours in the front end as a courtesy clerk averaged over 30 hours a week which is great but the schedule was not. A typical week for me would include getting scheduled 10-20 hours and then getting called in every day I was available. Very frustrating!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect all employees!

    Pros

    Fast-paced
    Fun coworkers
    Get to talk to a lot of people
    Opportunities to move up

    Cons

    Not a set schedule
    Not very flexible with school (even for a high schooler, which I was back then)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be kinder to employees - as a junior in high school, I was asked to choose between work and school. Obviously, I chose school.

    it was good to get experience and your job is protected by a union so you can't get fired for any thing.

    Pros

    basically you can take off as much time a you want and you only really have to give a week notice.

    Cons

    closing at midnight, opening at 5:30, customers are rude, they always ask you to stay later, pretty hard to move up in the company.

    Lots of work, customer service a priority, yet somehow expected to bake thousands of goods per shift.

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is gaining customer service experience. You get discounts from the store, and Alberstons is a union company - there will be progressive every 6 months or so. About 40 cents each time.

    Cons

    It's a workhorse job. If you work in the bakery, French Bread pays your check. And people simply don't come to the grocery store excited about bread.
