    Pros

    -only that is was local

    Cons

    -pay is awful and you won't get a raise unless you've known the manager before being hired
    -customers are some of the worst in the business
    -schedule is semi-flexible, they'll put you on for days and hours you have class
    -no employee discount
    -in fact, employees are prohibited from shopping there, which was awful for me seeing as its the only super market within walking distance
    -no respect
    -management is very aggressive
    -given fewer hours daily to avoid giving employees 30 minute breaks
    -outdated technology

    Pros

    Pretty easy job, not too much stress involved, nice co-workers. Quiet and clean store.

    Cons

    The managers never spoke to each other, so one would state a rule and another would have no idea and say something completely different.
