    Pros

    There are some nice people, they pretty much are always hiring (high employee turnover), it's good as a temporary job until you find a better one.

    Cons

    Low wages, you will be overlooked, managers are hard to find at times, little respect is shown, it feels like they don't have a clue what they are doing, no one likes it there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One manager is good but young, the rest are slow, ignorant, incapable of being a good manager.

    I worked at Piggly Wiggly

    Pros

    They are very friendly...easy going. It's located in a nice small town. The stores are all owned by different owners not by a large chain.

    Cons

    The owner of two stores does not appreicate his employes. He does not give deserved bonuses and he does not do things to make the stores better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch out.... Make sure you ask for your bonuses in writing... Don't just take their word.

    I worked at Piggly Wiggly part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Minimum training to becoming a cashier clerk but a rewarding and fulfilling career that I can apply the skills learned to any department or grocery store in shopping or working as an employee. The perks were great.

    Cons

    There were not many challenges except for standing in one place or position for long periods of time. I was compensated for working there and given time off, however there was room for promotion but I had to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor your business activity more closely to insure proper improper allocations.
