    I worked at Buy For Less

    Pros

    Great schedule flexibility, the managers and coworkers are great people. The work environment is great and very welcoming to both employees and customers.

    Cons

    You must be good with money in order to work here if you decide to be cashier. When it comes to going home things are not always great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great work from store manager considerate, comprehensive, willing to work with you.

    I worked at Buy For Less part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice co workers and asst. managers, awesome scheduling I could ask for any day off and i would get it, good pay for a grocery store. I worked at Uptown Grocery Co a substore of BFL, this is the place to work. It is the nicest grocery store in Edmond and I still shop there to this day. Interact with customers.

    Cons

    Cleaning the bathrooms sometimes, if your a cashier it gets mundane to have to stand there all day. You have to make it positive with your outlook or else it is going to be a boring job for you. Cant receive tips when carrying out groceries for people.

    I have been working at Buy For Less full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Accepting a position at Buy For Le$$ has been an amazing and life changing experience for myself and my career. In a short time, this company has invested more in me through leadership training, faith based encouragement, and constant motivation than any other company I have worked for. Career progression is not only supported company wide, employees are continually provided with tools to help achieve continued success. Starting pay for positions is usually higher than national average, benefits are affordable, and employees cultivate a real "family" environment. However, along with the perks, employees are held accountable and expected to perform as necessary in their positions. Constructive feedback is requested. Employees who show up on time, work when scheduled, and care about their jobs and the company are rewarded.

    Cons

    None-All of my experiences have been positive. I think the leadership of the company is heading in a very positive direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to seek feedback and input from ground floor employees. Never stop holding employees accountable for their actions or performance.

    Pros

    The owner is very caring and takes time to go into the stores and meet his employees...He has known me by name since my first month at Buy for Less. Not everyday you find an owner like that.
    Also I am a single mom and they try their best to help me out with my schedule.

    Cons

    We are in the grocery business so, of course, except for Christmas we are open every day of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep talking to employees and getting their input.
