    Pros

    There is a lot of room to move within the company. Pay is about average for this kind of company.

    Cons

    There is more work to do than hours allowed. Always feel behind. The hours they say you will be working(first shift) does not happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay non manager people more.

    Pros

    Good job, especially if you're a college student. Good hours, work tends to go by fast on busy days. The co-workers are the best, really will meet some good people working out. Room for growth as office positions tends to open.

    Cons

    The customers can sometimes get aggravating. WIC can be a pain as well, with people getting the wrong things and thinking you can get green beans on a regular WIC!
