I worked at Grocery Outlet full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great atmosphere, people are friendly and willing to assist you.

Cons

Small company with a mind of a large company trying to compete with the big retail outlets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company is too structured and does not listen to employees suggestions since I tried working there, had to keep my mouth shut.

    I have been working at Grocery Outlet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a manager you can sometimes work a M-F 9 to 5 schedule. $50 bonus for perfect attendance every 3 months.

    Cons

    No benefits. Low wages.Clerks $8.25/hr managers $10/hr No sick time. Management drastically cuts hours of most employees at the end of the month. Individually franchised so there is no structure for internal promotion to the corporate side. Rapid expansion of new stores are cannibalizing it's own sales.

    I have been working at Grocery Outlet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Employees and customers get excited about the great prices. There is a family feeling between employees and the operators. Its usually busy and the day goes by quick. Lots of room to advance if you're willing to learn.

    Cons

    There isn't health insurance or any other benefits.
