    Pros

    They will hire anybody just pass a drug test and you'll be good and it's basically impossible to get fired.

    Cons

    Management is severely undertrained many managers really don't know what they're are doing and/or don't care about how they treat employees. Store managers are very corrupt and treat employees unfairly and will take advantage of an employee if they see the opportunity. If they could delegate breathing they would.

    Advice to Management

    They need to stop promoting people based on seniority and promoting those that have the experience and that are trained to be able to succeed at their position.

    Pros

    There's always opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Favoritism.

    The Store director at my store is a pushover.
    Certain managers in this location treat employees with zero respect.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking you are above everyone else & understand that work is not life.

    Pros

    Friendly environment. Friendly customers. Flexible work hours. Weekly payments. Easy job as a bagger or when pushing carts. Did not require experience.

    Cons

    Give only few hours of work, the management average and the manager is busy all the time. Some customers think they own me, Need for smile all the time even if you are internally sad.

    Pros

    Work around school whether you're in high school or taking a few college classes. Friendly co workers. Required to give at least 16 hours a week.

    Cons

    Doing a million things at once for $9 an hour, plus cashiering without any pay bump. Union fees take a huge chunk out of that small paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Bump that pay! Move people around to departments quicker

    Pros

    They work with your schedule, offer excellent benefits, and you also have the opportunity to work in several different departments where you gain skills and experience.

    Cons

    You have to work holidays, it's impossible to get full time, and as a bookkeeper, you don't get paid nearly enough considering the amount of work you do and trust they instill in you. Also, with regards to working in the departments, (bakery, service deli, etc.) it is almost impossible to finish all of your work with the amount of time they give you.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees more. They work so hard for such little pay, especially those on the new contract. Also, don't give your employees extra tasks and still expect them to get out on time.
