    Pros

    people are great and you gain a lot of experience with help if you need it.

    Cons

    management could be better if they treated their employees like their an essential part of the "team". and the only scanning gun we have is at u-scan so if you have a bad back good luck lifting water bottle cases.

    Advice to Management

    being less harsh and providing the correct equipment to employers can help avoid a lawsuit.

  3. Petty work environment to put up with high pay. Racial politics abound

    Pros

    Pros are that I have been able to tell the manager when I can work and when I can't. But this is not standard across the company, I have a good manager at my store and I have connections with family working there.

    Cons

    Customers are rude. You are not given any benefits from the store like a reduced lunch. You can't drink water at your register. You have to ask to go to the bathroom. You can't text unless a cool manager is on duty. Pretty strict dress code relative to other grocery stores. Basically you're treated like scum of the earth because this is a minimum wage job. Customers are valued like kings by the uppity uppities and are more important than the workers who are bringing in money to the store. Also the company is very cheap, as in you get yelled at if you don't conserve bags or put a lot of items in the (very thin, breakable, overrecycled) bags.

    Advice to Management

    Pay workers more and actually treat them like they're valued. Provide more benefits and incentives for doing well rather than just getting yelled at if you don't.

    Pros

    From my experience, the managers were extremely laid back and easy to get along with. The job itself was quite easy to understand and soon I was able to complete it with such ease that I didn't even have to look down. Also, if you had something come up and needed time off (even if it was that same day), the managers were always willing to work with you. For the most, everyone was able to get along well together and more than willing to assist if you needed help with something (bagging groceries, looking up a produce number, running an errand, etc.).

    Cons

    The managers were sometimes so laid back that they did not enforce the rules entirely (I worked at two of these markets and only ran across one manager, out of about 8, that did this).
