Pros

The pay was great compared to my previous employment
Great relationship with the other General Managers in our District, sharing people and trading product or advice when needed

Cons

Upper Management treatment was horrible, there was always aa fear factor when they were coming and they would nit pick everything. I never heard a positive thing from any of them
Long Hours
No days off
Catering to

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to treat your people, We have lives and families but perhaps you do not care about that. If you aren't a "YES MAN" then you will go nowhere with this company

  1. Not a real job, you have to pay for all your materials so you don't make any real money...

    Pros

    Weekly pay if you get your timecard in on time. They offer serious employees opportunities to train for management.

    Cons

    You have to pay for everything job related; internet, phone, use your own printer, paper, ink. They only pay for your time and gas. You don't really make any money. You have to buy groceries as well for which they do not reimburse you.

    No opinion of CEO
  2. Struggling

    Pros

    Lots of interesting drama to keep you occupied some nice people

    Cons

    Long lines most stores have terrible assistant managers not enough hours to take care of customers they way they want to be taken care and pass audits that corporate pushes on on employees that failing could risk there job so they pass the audits but give terrible service to consumers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics take care of your customers at check out managers need to work on motivating there employees more than they work on stupid checklist don't waste so much money on tags make everything a decent all round good price always in stead of having blow out sales like 5 dollar ten pound bags of sugar and then having other prices jacked up to compensate consumers will come buy your ridiculous sale stuff leave and go to Walmart for the rest of there groceries make the deli worth going to get a sandwich quality isn't good for the price
