I worked at Swarthmore Co-op part-time
Awesome committed staff, fun environment, there are always things to be done and you rarely feel bored, free samples, damaged or expired goods always up for grabs
Constantly changing management structure, very little consistency between departments, high turnover in every department, poorly structured responsibilities and expectations means your job description is always changing
Advice to Management
Restructure hierarchy and management to be consistent, provide support and incentives for upper management so the whole staff feels secure in their leadership, invest in building and layout changes for better organization
I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Swarthmore Co-op (Swarthmore, PA) in May 2015.
Arrived early and told cashier that I was there for an interview and who I was meeting. She called my interviewer and told me I could take a seat at a table or the counter seating. It was very busy and I didn't hear back from the cashier for some time that the manager interviewing me was in a meeting and would be there as soon as it was done. The interview was somewhat relaxed, with the manager reading from a list of questions and taking my answers. She (Kira,) is very personable but focused, and seemed genuinely interested in what I expected from the position. When we were finished I was lead to believe I was likely to get the position but would receive a call in the next few days to confirm.
