    I worked at Dominick's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Made some friends, learned new skills, learned how to interact with customers and combat problems. The other employees were really nice.

    Cons

    The store was super dirty, the manager just sat the whole time. The customer service lady also did not help the cashiers when they were in need of help

    Advice to Management

    They should really work around your schedule. When I was pregnant, they wouldn't let me have days off when I needed them.

    Pros

    Good starting job. Helps get you life's skills and career off the ground. Not great for a career though. Yep.

    Cons

    They care more about the customer than the actual workers. I wanted out of there as fast as possible to move onto real jobs in the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what workers have to say. With management, I was always wrong and the customer right. This became increasingly frustrating.

    Pros

    It was an OK place to work but nice for a first job. The hours weren't bad and you never went hungry with the nature of the job.

    The hours were always changing every week which led to confusion and a lot of times frustration. The pay was pretty terrible too.

    Advice to Management

    Git gud.
