Great pay for the industry

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Rocky Mount, NC

ProsThe company starts its cashiers off at around $10.80 per hour - which is unheard of for the grocery industry!
The store managers never ask the cashiers or assistant managers to do anything THEY wouldn't do. The workload is pretty evenly distributed.
If you don't get a raise, you at least get a bonus check that is based on the number of hours you've worked that year.
A weeks worth of vacation after only 90 days of employment
Outstanding health insurance

ConsStressful because of the lack of manpower.
Very few chances for advancement due to the lack of expansion.
Don't allow managers to have ANY restrictions in their schedule (cannot attend school)
High turn-over of district managers, therefore you never really get to show your enthusiasm or skill to the same person for more than 8 months.
Lots of pressure to meet productivity
Only 2-3 people working in the store at the same time, so lots of things need to be done with little help
Refuse to fire people who need to be fired
My supervisor has a MASTERS degree, yet he cannot obtain a DM position because they refuse to promote from within. He works 50-70 hours per week.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow your full-time employees to attend school. Having an employee who wants to further their education is an ASSET, not a nuisance.
Your district managers should have a contract with their stores that is at LEAST 3 years. It is disheartening to the employees who want to advance to see a DM leave and have to start fresh with a new one in such a short amount of time. This KILLS the morale at many locations.
Give the people who work in the store an opportunity to advance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
