It had its ups and downs

Grocery Clerk (Former Employee)
Oviedo, FL

ProsFlexible hours, interesting/unique coworkers, good benefits (for F/T)

ConsThe management really makes or breaks a store and makes his/her employees happy or miserable. In my experience in the Orlando area, it's been more often than not breaking instead of making. Also districts vary widely on pay rates, how liberal they are with raises, and the prevalence of tipping customers (even though it's "not allowed"). So pick your store wisely and ask the workers in as many depts you can how they like it there

Advice to Senior ManagementDo psychological evals on those of whom you're planning on promoting either to management or further up the ladder.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
