    I worked at Acme Markets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    5% discount on everything but the beer, another 5% on store brands. Also your 15 minute break is paid for. Fellow employees are nice too. Paychecks come on a weekly basis instead of the usual biweekly.

    Cons

    Management is cutthroat and will find a reason to get rid of you. Pay is small and the union dues cut into your pay, yet won't help you when you need it. Management will treat you like a failure and will act like a bully.

    Advice to Management

    The way you treat you workers doesn't work. It makes the workers demoralized and makes lackluster service. Maybe if you treat the workers like they matter and not demeaning to them, they would start to care about their job.
