Horrible Company to work for! You are not an Employee you are there SLAVE

Cashier (Current Employee) London, KY

ProsMeeting and Greeting new people daily, & offering lower prices to low income family's

ConsExpect way to much out of employees, Daily tasks are daunting! District Managers are Power Hungry & have no respect for there amazing store managers & Cashiers

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of 3rd party companies such as Drive-line to setup new items or reset stores & teach store employees to do this themselves to free up budget's & allow extra payroll for busy times, Allow Cashier's to have drinks readily available to them behind the check-out, Im sure any customer wouldn't complain about an employee having something to drink! Abolish the cover Tattoo policy, I personally think it's discrimination unless the tattoo's are offensive, Allow cashier's to Void more than just the last item scanned, this would free up alot more of mgmt's time running back and fourth for scanning errors that a cashier could easily correct, Install Anti-Theft alarms which could eliminate shrink & be a very wise long term investment, have CCTV behind the check-out so cashiers could watch suspicious activity again helping reduce shrink.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
