    I have been working at County Market part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and pleasant customers, pretty laid back work environment. Management is very helpful and available when assistance is needed.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best, especially working part-time. Also do not get enough hours per week, even though my availability is completely open.

    I worked at County Market full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent opportunities for advancement. As long as you don't do anything blatantly unprofessional or dishonest, it's very hard to get fired there. They are pretty hands-off.

    Cons

    A lot of their stores are excessively bright, and have music playing too loudly. Even worse, the music at the store I worked at was literally ten or twelve songs on a continuous loop. The same exact songs, every single day, all of them very bad. If you are sensitive to stuff like that, you may have issues working there.

    A lot of the managers and supervisors would appear to be intoxicated on alcohol and/or meth during their shifts.

    You will deal with a lot of the headaches typical of grocery stores, such as old ladies arguing for 10 minutes because they thought their coupon was worth 7 cents more than it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use better discretion when hiring people. Make the store atmosphere a little more cozy and less bright. Their stores kind of have a box-store, Wal-Mart feel to them.

    I worked at County Market part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro was that there are other miserable workers you can communicate your stresses with.

    Cons

    The bosses are very anal. I remember one time when the store was empty she didn't want me to read a book because I was "abusing company hours". I was a cashier wtf!!??

    Pros

    Co workers were outstanding! Really bonded together in trying to get things done and complete tasks

    Cons

    Management and head of dept. Very racist and close minded and always seem to find something wrong. Never satisfied and sometimes never willing to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek leaders with diverse back grounds, open minds and experiences with handling irate, racist customers
