    Nothing special

    Cashier (Former Employee)
    Whitehall, MI

    ProsPamida is an okay company to work for. It paid just above minimum wage and what I did wasn't too bad.

    ConsWhen I worked there, I didn't get the hours I was hoping for, neither quanitity or times that I preferred.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to take their feelings out of the job. They often picked who they wanted to work with and stuck others with those they didn't want to work with.
