I have been working at Best Yet Market full-time (More than 5 years)
I've been at Best Market for over 5 years now. They offer many opportunities for promotions. They will always treat you right as long as you put the work in. They offer many team building experiences such as baseball games, fishing trips etc. Also their employee appreciation summer BBQs are a nice touch. Non union which depending on your work style could be to your advantage or disadvantage. Most managers I've had have been very good. This includes both department and store manager. The corporate management tend to be a**holes usually but you don't have to see them too often so that's good. Overall its a good place to work. I've never had any serious issues.
Their compensation isn't great but its a super market job so you shouldn't be expecting miracles. Management sometimes takes forever to fix broken appliances. For example broken slicers and rotisserie machines would sometimes take months to fix. Management can sometimes be sporadic. I've heard completely opposite rules from two separate store level managers. Very uncoordinated. Always understaffed. They provide you with the bare minimum of employees to get the job done. if somebody calls out you are essentially screwed and if you are the one calling out they will make you feel like a terrible person. That shouldn't be your fault that the company refuses to hire new employees. They are also very stingy with over time. They will schedule you for 39.5 hrs to get the most out of you without hitting that 40hr mark and going overtime.
Advice to Management
Fix your appliances faster and schedule more hours per department. This bare minimum hours thing is absolutely horrible. Keep your employees happy and don't take them for granted.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Best Yet Market (Bethpage, NY).
Joke of an interview. They have people that are laughably unqualified for their jobs actually interviewing others. The incompetence at the Office level is honestly astounding. The level of corruption in the job selection process is a certain cause for concern
