    I have been working at Cub Foods part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for part timers. They have paid holidays. On the job forklift training. You get paid weekly. Flexible work hours. Unionised.

    Cons

    Hours constantly vary and they are not hiring for full time. They no longer offer insurance benefits to part timers. The also expect one person to do the work of 3 people in half the time. It is a high stress environment.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting checker's hours makes the lines longer and the customers crabbier. Stop cutting hours in the parts of the store that deal directly with customer service.
