    I worked at Bottom Dollar Food (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    fun work environment, awesome co-workers and manager, flexible schedule, surprisingly polite customers for the most part

    Cons

    sometimes understaffed especially during busy times, annoying rules such as being fired for scanning a store card or entering your own phone number to help a customer out

    Advice to Management

    the company closed down at the beginning of 2015, sadly corporate greed affected a lot of people's lives

    Advice to Management

    Management should hire smarter people because the people I worked with did not carry their own and relied on me for most of the time

    Pros

    The store's were busy, clean, low-priced with fresh produce and baked goods daily. Management were friendly, understanding, and treated all employees with respect. Great team to be a part of.

    Cons

    The store and all stores in NJ opened, consumer's loved the stores, and then they sold company to Aldi three years later. Many people lost their incomes. Sad.

    Pros

    I met some nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Management has little interest in issues, schedules your shift so you can't get a lunch, makes you buy your uniform, work in your department alone and expected to do work of 2-3 people, no employee discount.

    I worked at Bottom Dollar Food part-time

    Pros

    -Customers were really nice, and funny. Best part of the work day

    Cons

    -Most managers were pretentious jerks, and never actually worked
    -Pay was a joke, and the hours were barely there (10hrs a week) but they expected you to be available for 30.
    -Non manager input meant nothing

    Advice to Management

    Next time, you open up a business like this-try hiring managers that treat their employees like human beings.

    Fast paced work environment, love working with all the people and the customers, great team work..

    Cons

    Senior management was constantly stressed and he would take it out on the team.

    Advice to Management

    It would have been nice if the senior managers were able to help front end when we didn't have enough hired staff. They were receiving our deliveries aND stocking. Needed more front end staff.
