    I have been working at Acosta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job fits my skill sets and allows for critical thinking and problem solving within a bakery setting. I get to teach and train the bakery associates in all the Sam's clubs in my state.

    Cons

    Management often seems disorganized and often feel like we're doing their jobs on top of ours. Sometimes we are expected to work long hours and there is a lot of miscommunication between our multiple bosses as to where we're supposed to be working daily/weekly, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Please communicate better with one another so we can continue to do our jobs to the best of our ability. Allow for raises and bonuses based off performance.
