    The only advice I have for you is too keep up the good job. You truly care about your employees. Thank you for everything!

    Pros

    Pleasant management and easy to talk to, discount card received after three month trial period is complete.

    Cons

    erratic hours scheduled, low pay no sick time or personal days off.

    Advice to Management

    Afford more training to newcomers to this field, don't assume more than we know

  6. Three years later, with a raise to 2015's minimum wage. "Best" Market isn't the best at anything.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Embrace the suck with coworkers, and maybe make a few new friends
    - Work somewhere else, there are better entry jobs, even grocery stores to work at

    Cons

    - Profits over everything
    - Low compensation versus expectation
    - Underappreciated/dispebdable as a worker
    - Work holidays

    Advice to Management

    Save for a few department managers, the majority of you are clowns. The CEO is as greedy as they come. If you boast the idea of a "work family", learn how to treat it as such, not like a family you don't care about.

    I have been working at Best Yet Market

    Pros

    There are not that many pros to best market other than it is a paycheck each week. In fact there are more cons to best market.

    Cons

    Anything that any of the employees do to make best market a better place for customers and employees is shoot down. It is a disgusting, dirty, and dangerous place to work. There have been issues of physical and sexual harassment, and assault. When reported to management it is not remedied. I do not recommend working for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to talk with the customers and employees because they are the backbone of your business. Take a good look at who is running things for you. Try more advertising and take a very good and long look at the stores.

    Cons

    For front line employees: bad raises
    Management gives in WAY too easily
    Communication barriers
    Need to worry about the older stores before they open more

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Vacation/personal day accrues regardless of full time or part time.
    Free turkey during Thanksgiving.
    Christmas gifts.

    Cons

    The average increase in salary is $ .25 once a year and you have to keep on top of your manager for the yearly raise or you won't get it.

    I was hired part time and worked full time hours most of the month, then the last week of the month they would cut me down under 30 to keep me part time.

    Twice I was pressured into choosing days off for vacation, only to find out I was working anyway the chosen days and the management knew nothing about me having a day off.

    None of the managers know what the others are doing.

    I and others I work with were abused verbally by customers for things we had no control over.

    They didn't care about your day off, if they called you to come in and you couldn't the manager demanded to know what was so important.

    Advice to Management

    Making sure your employees working there is just as important as making sure the customers come back. I, as a former employee, refuse to shop there if only because I know how they treat the staff.
