Understandable Service

Clerk (Current Employee)
Battle Creek, MI

I have been working at Family Fare full-time for less than a year

ProsWhere I work the boss is understanding and professional, I fully believe their company would never fire anyone without trying to work their issues out first. If the employee is not negotiable and hard to work with, then they'd be discharged but not without an attempt on fixing the issue. The employees are kind and helpful and the store is neat and clean, very easy to navigate.

ConsPrices on some fruits or vegetables are often noted first as they're the first things you see, however what you see is what you get, they're vibrant and come from a nice farm and workers in the area so it is quite well worth the price.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep reading the comments on your surveys and working at it and you'll be fine.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
