    Pros

    Does not pay well. Benefits are not all that great either. Did make some good friendships and reconnected with some old friends while working there.

    Cons

    Good learning experience. Hope to take what I learned and be able to get back into the work force soon!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To do unto other as they would want done to them.Produce better attitudes and be fair personal feelings about an employee should never play a part in the actions needed to do the job assigned to do.

    Pros

    Easy job to get. They literally will hire anyone with no drug test or criminal background (Well I don't know if that's a good thing). There's a union so you can't get fired just because the manager doesn't like you. Best thing to do is get your foot in the door and get experience (stay for about 6 months to a year) so that you can move on and get a better paying job.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, one would think that a place that charges so much for their groceries and demands so much from their employees would pay more but no that is not the case. Raises are every 6 months from between 15 and 25 cents so you can be there for many years and not even touch $10 an hour. (I been there for 3 years and was only making 8.50)
    There is barely any room for growth so be prepared to stay in the same position for a very long time.
    Management is horrible all the managers are super scared of the head bosses of the company and the pressure that they get shows because they take it out on the employees. They demand a lot from you and don't even appreciate or acknowledge any of your accomplishments. There are no bonuses or any incentives for the things that you do it's one of those just be happy you have a job jobs.
    Scheduling isn't great, it is a retail job so a flexible schedule is expected but you almost never get two consecutive days off. So you may get 28 hours to work in a week which will be stretched out in a 5 day period (about 5 or 6 hours in a day) and be off on Tuesday and then again on Friday. There is no set schedule. Asking for days off and calling out is a big deal. Some supervisors get very annoyed when you ask for a day off in advance. If you call out even if you never called out since you have started working there the management gets very upset with you and there has been instances where they would take it out on your schedule for the next week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please if anything just treat your employees with a little more appreciation and respect. Employees are a very important part of your business just as the customers are. I think the overall experience will be better for everyone involved if this is done.

    Pros

    Good place to start if you have no work experience and need a paying job but would not recommend outside that context.

    Cons

    Pay is not incredible; it's minimum wage. That said, the interview process is not very difficult and you can get working quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more variation in the song tracks played in supermarkets

    Great First Job

    Former Employee - Cashier

    Pros

    Get experience in customer service. You learn to problem solve and handle minor customer issues, how to help and assist customers who needed help, meet new people and work with new people, meet new friends. You also can learn about work ethics for those who never had a job before.

    Cons

    Stayed glued in your position most of the time. If you were assigned to be a cashier that day, you were a cashier that day. You could not be a bagger or work in the deli. If you were assigned to be a delivery person that day, you couldn't do anything else except deliveries for your whole shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross Train your employees
