    Excellent place to work, but you can find yourself not becoming challenged very quickly.

    I worked at Dorothy Lane Market part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay really well in comparison to other grocery stores. Things you learn there will benefit you for the rest of your life. I am still saying "my pleasure" instead of "no problem" which has made me sound more professional in my current career.

    Cons

    People in management roles such as HR and high up positions have no background in the field and promotions can be very political. Someone who has only been working at the company for a year, yet puts in 110% everyday is still not as good in their eyes as someone who has half-assed their job for 8 years. Good workers are treated poorly some times just because someone in upper management doesn't like them personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join the 21st century. Hire HR people with backgrounds in HR. Or at least teach your HR manager to not make comments that could get you sued for sexual harassment. Don't promote solely based on seniority, even if someone newer/younger is clearly better for the position.

    I worked at Dorothy Lane Market part-time

    Pros

    Great management who truly care about the employees but mostly the customers. DLM strives to go above and beyond for their customers. They are always seeking ways to improve their stores and make DLM the best place to shop and work.

    Cons

    The customer is always right! When the customers complain, DLM wants to solve the problem on the spot. This is great and bad at the same time.

    Pros

    Excellent company orientation and job training, complete support from upper management, as an employee you feel like a member of a family network, good opportunities for cross-training in other departments, ample growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Must start as a part-time employee, but ultimately if you work hard and are diligent in paying attention to job postings, full-time employment is easily and quickly achieved.
