    Former Employee - Bulk Clerk in Fort Worth, TX

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Central Market part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management was flexible with my school schedule. Not much micro-management in the bulk department. People knew their duties and completed them without a nagging manager.

    Cons

    There is a huge gap difference in pay for men and women. As a female, I was carrying 20-50 pound boxes to empty the cooler. I worked much more efficiently than the males with less mess and still gave great customer service. However, I was making around 11 dollars an hour while the males made around 17-18 dollars. The employee reviews were stupid, I was reviewed by a manager who didn’t even know my face. I never received a raise even though I worked there for 2 years.

    I worked at Central Market full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, Cross training Opportunities, Good Amount of Hours and Decent Starting Pay. I loved working here, the managers were all very friendly and it allowed room to learn a lot which made everyday just a little different.

    Cons

    In my experience and in a few of my friends experience who used to work there there is a lot of inner circle clique type behavior that is very common in Entry level retail but it was a bit demoralizing. Other than that I never had any issues.
