    Pros

    It's a job and you do get paid. There are lots of KeyFood branches in many communities, so it's always located fairly near to your house. The management is usually very fair when you want to have days off, they believe any excuse you have. You could decide to join a union, this way when you're older you could get a little bit more money.

    Cons

    I worked parttime and the hours were insane. You get paid minimum wage. They don't allow you to take friday or Saturday off. You can't wear skirts or dresses if you're a girl and if you're a guy then you have to wear a tie everyday. If you're a cashier then you have to stand on your feet all day and you MIGHT mess up and give someone the wrong amount of change back. If you're a stock boy then you might get hurt in the aisle that you work in. The management really sucks, everyone is always hiding because they don't want to do much. The manager I had was a pervert and couldn't help but to look at the girls. At the end of the day, when you complete you shift and if you're the unfortunate one to close, then you have to sweep, wipe down registers, pack bags, take out garbage from the dustbin and sometimes help the stock boys before you can go home. Women have to wear these ugly overcoats/smocks and they don't have them in a size small. You get suspended for having your phone out, wearing sneakers, and giving the wrong change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know much about this. I am young.

    Former Employee - Upfront Manager  in  Brooklyn, NY
    Former Employee - Upfront Manager in Brooklyn, NY

    Pros

    It was close to home.
    It was a neighborhood place where people are very friendly.
    Customers recognize you outside of the store, and wave and say hi.
    It was a relaitvley easy job with easy taskes to complete.
    It didn't take much effort.

    Cons

    The one thing they were very strick on was being on time, they set the clock 5 minutes foward to make you think you were later that you really were. and they make comments when you punched the time clock 5 minutes late, when the set it 5 minutes fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more flexable in the work schedule. People have a life outside of keyfood
