    I worked at The Pantry full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most people are cordial; Some of the IT projects are interesting; Health insurance costs are modest for mediocre coverage

    Cons

    HR cannot be trusted; Legal dept exists only to make sure managers are protected from their abuses (like forcing employees to work off the clock); Most ineffective IT group I have ever worked for; Took 8 years to upgrade their ERP system and still can't track costs to the item level; Installed multimillion dollar fuel pricing system that resulted in the worst fuel sales in company history; Installed multimillion dollar time clock system that doesn't work; Took several years to install POS that works in only half the stores; Also they only pay lip service to SARBOX controls (audit nightmare); Management doesn't listen to nor do they care about the employees; Bad employees and managers are often protected by legal team- Innovation is discouraged

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT management needs to be completely removed; Senior HR management needs to be completely turned over - Biggest need is to listen to the employees!!!!!!
