    A lot of great people.

    Always short on capital and more focused on expense control than long term goals and results to improve margin dollars and overal profitability.

    I worked at Pamida

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management 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.
