Trying to be Whole Foods, Wal-Mart, and Harmons.

Barista (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

ProsThe pay is great if you know the right people and strings to pull. Discounts on Ford, Apple, HP, Dell, and Lenovo products as well as some phone plans. Involved in community and donates to Primary Children's Hospital.

ConsStarting pay isn't pleasant. Management gets worse the hirer you go. Greedy and sells out to any third party to save a buck. Gotten really conservative in the past 5 years(e.g. Hiring limitations on tattoos, gauged ears, and hair style/color). Employee discount is only 10% off Kroger brands and nonfoods at Marketplace locations.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart caring about your employees and customers again instead of aiming for 'Highly Satisfied' scores. Secret shoppers and telephone surveys provided more accurate and positive feedback than your online survey built for complaints.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
