Pros

Competitive pay, health insurance for part time employees, paid vacations, somewhat flexible about schedules (unless you want to be a manager), generally interesting co-workers.

Cons

Food comes from all over the world but people still feel like its some hippy all natural good for you co op type of store; no profit sharing; no emphasis on organic or even healthy food- they have some but its all about what sells; incredibly crowded at any reasonable time to shop; wasteful over packaging, especially of produce, only 10% discount.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Easy going coworkers. If there is ever a mate or merchant you don't get along with, be patient, they''ll be transferred soon enough

    Cons

    Lack of a set schedule and inconsistent scheduled hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the required management hours down to forty. It is impossible for a working mom to go full time. We do not have one at our store. It is a shame that only 20 something men
    get promoted. It feel very discriminatory.
