Horrible place to work at

Deli Clerk (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsSome co-workers are nice, such as store managers and assistant managers, others, not so much.

ConsThe employees and the management are horrible, when I first started, nothing was taught to me, I was expected to know everything before even came in. Co-workers were very mean to me, whenever I wanted to ask them questions or needed their help, they gave me cold shoulders as if I was wasting their precious time. If you didn't ask them and did something wrong, they would yell at you, but the thing is, if you didn't tell me in advance, how am I supposed to know? I guess the root of the problem is that because of the high turnover rate, they knew that you are going to quit at some point of the future, so they have no intension of making friends with you or teaching you anything, any effort they spend on you now is going to be a waste.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide better training programs.

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