    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Good pay and benefits. Full time gets 40hrs a year sick pay and 48 hrs a year personal paid time.

    Cons

    Can sometimes have poor fellow associates. Not allowed to have food or drink unless on your breaks. Very strict with tardiness and absences.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with attendance issues. If someone comes in twice on their day off, and they have a call out on record they should take the call out off.

    Pros

    The customers, it's a typical grocery store, you can move up fairly quickly if you do your job, more than your job, and kiss some butt

    Cons

    The staff was unruly, the front end office assistants treated cashiers like slaves, the managers (except for one) were always talking, eating, smoking, nowhere in site, or on the phone.
