Pros

I like the job security and flexibility toward schedules. My experience with them thus far has been a decent one and I feel appreciated as an employee by coworkers in management and customers.

Cons

If you're on your own, you will need a second job to make ends meet. Due to being Union, pay starts off at $7.25 an hour at part time.

Advice to Management

Listen to the customers when certain products are not available that once were. Also, make advancing in the ranks more accessible for those that work hard and wish to advance.

    Pros

    -the friendliness and helpfulness of co-workers
    -Easy when need to switch shifts

    Cons

    -Passive aggressiveness of management
    -Lack of communication between management (all levels)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with middle management and don't be afraid to tell someone they are doing something wrong. It's the only way they can fix and improve their work habits. Vague notes written by the clock in station probably won't reach the intended recipient.

  2. Stable Company to Work For.

    Pros

    Very generous company who donates millions to charities and other important community events and local and national food banks.
    Great career advancement opportunities to all employees.
    Great atmosphere for outgoing people who enjoy working with public.
    Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Pay rates for lower level positions are generally lower than competition.
    High employee turnover rates.
    Mediocre communication from top management to bottom level employees.
    Variety of hours employees must work.

    Advice to Management

    Managers and executives in this company need to work on a communication method that allows all managers at store level to be on same page whether they are off for a day or on vacation. Try to develop a daily minutes sheet to allow communication to flow from one manager to the next.
