    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and management. Customers are usually pleasant. Discount on their brand of groceries, breaks every 2 hours, 401 and health benefits even for PT. Willing to cross train you in other departments to get your hours in.

    Cons

    Not for you if cannot handle being bored. If you have to be busy to be happy, try deli or cashiering.

    Advice to Management

    Only suggestion is to realize you are hiring people for minimum wage jobs so handing them a brochure for work shoes where the prices start at 8 hours of pay to purchase a pair is ridiculous.

    Pros

    Nice people, easy, flexible schedule. Most people are generally easy going. Usually get the time off you want or need.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, skeleton crew always, not enough people to make a department run correctly, lot of politics. It's not a bad company.. it is just that we could use more people but the company claims they can not afford it.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to either give people more hours or hire more people in. Don't make all of us struggle just to line pockets. More people means more product and more product mean more sales.

    Pros

    Ample opportunities to move up in the company. The benefits are great and the good managers will take care of you. Part time hours are not consistent at all. Very hard to get a full time position.

    Cons

    Refuses to invest in new technology and spend any form of money. Not a very efficient company, there are a lot of things they do that can be done faster. Very repetitive and really boring. The management is very hit and miss. The good managers always get transfered too.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money on technology. The self checkouts are from 2004 and always keep breaking. Nothing works forever. Keep the good managers and move the bad ones.

  10. I really enjoy getting to work here.

    Pros

    Schedules are flexible for part time employees. There are an abundance of opportunities if one is looking to move up within the company. Employees in most stores are part of a union contract so wages are set with increases at specific intervals and rates. The healthcare program is one of the best I've seen. Also, store contributes towards the purchase of specialty shoes, i.e. slip resistant shoes, which can significantly reduce or completely eliminate that cost.

    Cons

    Full-time employment isn't always readily available. If you're part time, the fluctuation in the hours you get weekly can make it hard to make ends meet. Also, for part time employees, benefits such as health care and 401k and vacation may not be available prior to working with the company a year.

  11. Ok High School job
