    Pros

    Well paying, busy fast paced environment. With lot of responsibilities. It's good to be a part of a growing company that's healthy and looking to expand. Always room for career advancement for those that work hard enough.

    Cons

    Sometimes the stress is overwhelming. Too much to do not enough time. With very high expectations from management.
    If you don't perform your out, simple as that. No union at management level.
    Lots of pressure. But when you over come it it is very satisfying

    Pros

    Fellow co-workers were nice.

    Cons

    -There was no employee lounge.
    - Quiet environment you stick to yourself.
    -You didn't get discounts on groceries.
    -The only way you would see an increase in wage is through how many hours you work. If you reach a certain amount of hours each time it increases by a few cents each time.

    Advice to Management

    Better wages for your employees.


  9. A great store to work at if you're a student looking for part time work.

    Pros

    Fortino's has a strong and stable culture. They taught me about integrity, responsibility, accountability and ownership. They allow their managers to manage and be creative without micro managing. I enjoyed the honesty, trust and directness. Its a professional company with a strong culture. It was one of the best companies I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    More communication is necessary to find out about employee growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Review your managers and find out what their goals are. Keep the communication open. With more communication there is more dedication and much more loyalty. .
