    It can still be a good job, it just takes longer to get paid right.

    Current Employee - Stock Clerk in Fremont, CA

    Pros

    Best reasons are for the benefits and the fact that once you are union you pretty much just have to show up to keep your job. Decent pay for journeyman food clerks, GREAT pay when you consider how much you would make at a retail store performing similar tasks.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Non-serious/dedicated employees (typically age 16-21 crowd). New hires fall under new contract that requires insane amounts of hours to achieve decent pay, yet still are expected to work as hard as the higher payed employees. A lot of flexibility is required, basically if you are not in school you have to be available all the time. It can take a long time to get a set schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Did have fairly good pay and good benefits along with some approachable management in some areas.

    Work weekends and nights, and extreme micro management.

    Less Micromanagement and do need to listen to employee feedback to grow company in a direction where consumers are satisfied.
