    I loved it there as a cashier

    Cashier (Former Employee) Nacogdoches, TX

    ProsI loved that they worked with my schedule frequently, especially since I have children. The pay was good and they were very willing to negotiate with my set wage. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I could always ask anyone for help. The customers were also very pleasant a majority of the time. If I needed to work again, then I would definitely return to this company!

    ConsI don't really have any, but perhaps just when there are rude customers that you have to deal with. Also having to stand the entire shift, but just make sure to get some very comfortable shoes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work. I really enjoyed working for the company and the ability to help your customers whenever I could.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Brookshire brothers has been a great teacher of many life long lessons that will never be forgotten.

    Assistant Store Director (Current Employee) DeRidder, LA

    ProsBrookshire Brothers has taught many life long lessons. Some are to be applied to life in general. Others to the world of business. Regardless, all experiences can be applied to situations one will face for the rest of one's life.

    ConsCons are learning to deal with the public and be a team player with all coworkers. This includes the ones you don't get along with. It can be quite difficult leaning to set aside differences and work together as well as the acceptance of "the customer is always right."

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be more managers with the understanding that anyone can change, anyone can do better, and everyone has weaknesses they just need help learning how to work through them and improve no matter the odds.

    No chance for advancement
    Old school management style, low paid laborers and high paid managers
