    I worked at BI-LO part-time

    Pros

    It is nice to connect with customers and most people are nice.

    Cons

    Some people are very impatient and rude. Also my management team wasn't very nice to the other employees. They seemed distant from everyone else.

    I worked at BI-LO part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of hours. Cash office experience was very helpful in obtaining a new job. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    I worked here for years and this job took a toll mentally. DO NOT go for customer service/bookkeeping unless you want to be stressed out, overworked, and under paid. You will be responsible for running the entire front end with no help from management. Often had to watch self checkout, run a register, run the service desk AND handle cashiers' tills all at once. No help at all and severely understaffed. Minimal training. Only made cashier salary while doing opening and closing bookkeeping. Denied full time. Managers sit in the office all day and refuse to help. Could not take lunches often despite working 8,10 and 12 hour shifts because they refused to cover breaks. Management is petty and drama filled. They talked about me behind my back and spread countless lies about everyone. I even had one manager who would make me cry every night when I first started and would bully me because I was new and not trained properly. The only reason I stayed was because I loved the cash office work and I made great friends there.
