Sometimes fun, not given tools to succeed.

First Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

ProsLove most of my employees
Some store managers are awesome and are great resources.

ConsNot enough hours in the day to do everything
Unrealistic goals
Changing bonus goals/ structure right before the year is over
New contract employees recieve minimum wage until they reach a million hours and then they get a 25 cent raise.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop with all the programs and audits and concentrate on giving employees more money. Most are great employees that will go elsewhere to make a living. Stop with all these audits, we're in the business to sell groceries, aren't we???

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
