Pros

Great starting pay(for teenagers). Raises every 6 months. Bonuses around holiday season, and sometimes randomly throughout the year. Flexible Scheduling.

Cons

Often one might feel that work accomplished is not recognized, or that you are doing more work that needs to be done.

Advice to Management

Remember that you are working for teenagers, who for the most part do have school as well as work. Some of the teenagers are being asked to do a little bit more than one might be able to handle.

    Pros

    The job is fairly easy and straightforward. Besides memorizing PLU Codes for fruits an vegetables, the job can be learned with in couple of hours. The managers are very nice and are understanding if you cannot make it to work. But be sure to find some one in to fill your spot. That's all.

    Cons

    Peak hours can be chaotic. with no chance to break or rest. Lines of customers can sometimes reach 7 carts in each aisle. I have also seen very few people move up to Assistant manager from being a cashier, and those who are promoted are chosen by how much the managers like chatting with you.

    Advice to Management

    The store is making a lot of business where I live. I say keep up the great work.

    Pros

    The people that work there are fun and friendly. Plus it's fun to talk with the customers. If you work the night shift you have the freedom to eat whatever you want. Also you can listen to music over the loud speaker and wear whatever you want. You can work just about as many hours as you'd like and are quite flexible.

    Cons

    The downsides include high manager turnover rate. This is possibly due to lack of training. However, some of the managers are really nice and easy to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Be as cordial as possible to your employees.
