    Okay place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's better then nothing if you need it, more flexibility with after a few months.

    ConsThe pay rate it too low, the competition pay 2-4 more dollars.that is because most of the employees hardly speak English. Discrimination is bad.
    If your not Latino don't expect much. No room for advancement because this store work on a who know basis for that.. My advice is if you have to then do it but find something better

    It's Pretty Good

    Cashier (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Decent job for high school and college student but not a career.

    Cashier (Current Employee) Plainview, NY

    Pros• Discounts on groceries
    • Friendly cashiers (for the most part)
    • Potential future business connections (if you speak to customers and build friendships)

    Cons• Tinge of racism amongst employees (towards "white" coworkers)
    • If you do not understand Spanish get use to employees talking behind your back.
    • Hours get cut all the time (less-flexibility)
    • You agree to work holidays and such when you take the job
    • No room for raise other than the union's $0.25 raise every 6 months.

    Advice to Senior Management• Be a lot nicer to your employees (we get you are under stress but seriously cheer up)
    • Give more opportunity for promotion or switching departments
    • Standardize your stores to have the same layouts as one another and carry similar products

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