I have been working at Country Fair

Pros

You learn about teamwork, along with an array of information. How ordering is done and vendors arrive. Skills you can take with you for the future.

Cons

It is very hard to move up and grow in this environment. The pay is low and raises take awhile to kick in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership is average but the shared information is terrible. In order to learn anything new you have to ask management about it.

    I worked at Country Fair part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, paid training, and easy to move up the ladder from cashier to shift manager to assistant manager

    Cons

    Minimum wave job; the standard belittling customers give to a cashier working at a gas station; staff members that don't smoke don't really get the breaks to take that smokers do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more reputable staff members; don't let employees walk all over you and don't play favorites

    Former Employee - Shift Manager in Erie, PA

    I worked at Country Fair full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Always hiring. Makes a good job while in school, in between jobs, etc. just not a career option. Teaches valuable professional skills (IF you do the job right with emphasis on customer service). Provides extensive management office training. Offers a health care program that is one of the best I have seen. Good food.

    Cons

    Minimum wage environment for a high-stress job. Store policies and procedures vary according to store sizes, so responsibilities are distributed unevenly at the discretion of store and assistant managers. Politics dictate all promotions, scheduling, awards and sharing of information. Frequently overlooks violations of labor laws such as "call off" policy, breaks, etc. and sexual harassment charges. Worst work atmosphere. Has no whistleblower hotline so all personal complaints have to be publicized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would recommend encouraging better communication and appreciation. If you are an entry level manager who wants to move up, move to the largest store you can find. They usually only promote from those!
