    I have been working at Bashas' full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company strives to be a family oriented company. The deli was like a second family. Even friendships with other departments made working there easy, because everyone knew each other.

    Cons

    Sick time policy was horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to really understand how different departments really operate, from the bottom to the top and give praise to those employees that keep the store running every day.

    I worked at Bashas' part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job was easy, coworkers were really fun, and most of the management were kind and understanding.

    Cons

    Not much room for personal growth. The job was a little dull, didn't pay very well, and was hard work being on your feet.

    management is firing older higher paid workers in order to hire entry level employees at lower pay. employees hours were cut so that we do not qualify for health insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you take care of your people, they will take care of you. Remember the boss is only as good as his crew allows him to appear.

    Pros

    The camaraderie you develop between your fellow slaves. Thats about it.

    Cons

    I am a meat clerk in the "Butcher's Corner". I have been there just about a year now. I could write a book about what an awful position this is. First, the pay. $8.58 an hour with zero benefits in a dying industry where the crusty lifers that have "achieved" full time status literally do not want to teach you anything, as they feel threatened by a guy who will come in and work for peanuts at twice their pace. Second, the "lifers" in general. By this I mean the employees that have been there 15+ years because they can still reap the grandfathered benefits that used to be in place within the company, from pay ceiling to benefits. They do not like any new hires and get their rocks off by running off closers with their constant nitpicking and whining when the fact that they cannot be bothered to teach new employees anything actually bites them in the ass. Next is the expectations laid upon you. I generally work 1-9pm shifts, where I see my manager for maybe an hour before he takes off for the day and I am left with the train wreck of a department that the AM crew left for me. My manager purposely under-schedules the night crew to stack his fellow lifer's hours in the mornings. This leaves me, a guy who barely knows anything about the industry to basically run the department during the dinner rush. Food prep, case presentation and filling, major janitorial duties, customer service-- literally everything is placed on the shoulders of the part time pee-on after 2 in the afternoon. Leave late because you were swamped with zero backup all day, or forget something as petty as leaving a dirty towel under a table? Expect a write-up. The management is a joke and the scheduling borders is by all means best described as 'abusive'. They set you up to fail with ridiculously unrealistic expectations for the sake of seeing what they can get away with not having to do. STAY AWAY!

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working for Bashas and have been given the opportunity for a successful career. They encourage community service and are strong in the communities they serve.

    Cons

    Some financial struggles with the bankruptcy were difficult to handle. Also hard to keep morale high with uncertainties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep full time options open in skilled positions. It is hard to be the leader without deep knowledge in this industry.
