I have been working at Food City part-time (More than a year)
Work experience for those needing their first job, especially for high school students who need gas money and maybe pay for insurance if they budget well enough. I wouldn't give anything for the bond I have with most of my coworkers. When someone experiences a loss or something tragic happens in their lives, we're there for them. It's an unbelievable support system that I never thought I would have in my coworkers. When I leave, it'll be the thing I miss the most.
Not a good place to work to pay bills or keep a family afloat. Working at Food City has taught me not to have very much faith in "promises" that upper management makes to you. They promise opportunity in moving up, but you have to wait on their terms to do it. However, when you have bills to pay and you really reeeaaallllyyyy need that full time position, it becomes quite inconvenient. When you have a manager who does nothing but harass his employees, and some customers, it's hard to have respect for your boss when all the manager gets is a slap on the wrist. Employees shouldn't have to look at their schedule and groan because they know they're going to have to work with this person for nearly their entire shift. I'm pretty sure that's a hostile work environment, which is to be dealt with appropriately.
Advice to Management
Keep your word, or keep your mouth shut. Don't use an employee's eagerness to advance and better themselves to string them along like a puppet. Stop asking your customers for so much money for donations, because the cashiers are tired of asking and being yelled at because your customers are tired of being asked. Don't just give someone a slap on the wrist because they're a yesman to you and you need them around to boost your ego. Think about the work environment you're giving your employees, because they're the ones who face your customers, and can and have told them how horrible of a place it is to work because it is.
