    I have been working at Fiesta Mart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, very important when in school and co-workers are very co-operative and friendly. Nice work environment with somewhat up-to-date music, however the music is not a big deal.

    Cons

    A little strict on certain tasks such as how many groceries you ring per minute and what your percentage is, as well as how much groceries in cash value have you voided. Which the voids is what will probably get you at the end of the day. On the weekends many people WILL tell you to remove x item because they bought one too many or they don't want it anymore OR they didn't bring enough money with them for it.

    Advice to Management

    Increase VOID limits and don't worry too much about rings per minute as long as the checker isn't noticeably slow.

    People were nice to work with. Good place for someone that wants to work a lot of hours.

    To retain great employees with great customer service and great work ethics work with the employees schedules too!

    Pros

    Not many pros as a full timer. Noting good to say anymore. Own by investors who are worried about then. Not a family caring company like before. I feel like a Morden day slave easily replaced they don't care about you only their profits. Thats why people are leaving the company after many years.

    Cons

    Company tight with the hours they keep taking hours away from the dept mangers for not hitting numbers. I understand that you have make gross but with the items they force out you can't hit your numbers. They not getting anything fix cause they spent to much on buying minyards. I was told that.

    Advice to Management

    If you want your managers to hit thier numbers than stop forcing items out just because you got a good deal. Not all stores are the same. They company lacks communication, which use to be great before getting bought out. Not a sense of family.

    Pros

    Managers are nice if you work your butt off

    Consider closing earlier on holidays

    Pros

    As a college student, they were very flexible with my schedule. The managers are very friendly and overall it's a friendly environment.

    Pros

    Getting off at 3pm when it happened.

    Cons

    Quite a few of Fiesta's supervisors are convicted felons that should give you insight into the caliber of organization this is. They give you very little training as to their way of doing things and then hold you accountable for your mistakes anyway , ignorance of "Fiesta" law is no excuse . Their health insurance at the time I was there was far below industry standards another sign that Fiesta doesn't care about its employees in the least. When I was at Fiesta we had a Produce Manager who ended up dying from stomach cancer . I strongly feel that Fiestas' poor health insurance was a contributing factor to this situation . Because most employees there cannot afford the $1500 yearly deductible to go to the doctor , I mean that so what if you have insurance if you have $1500 out of pocket before their insurance will cover anything you effectively have no insurance. I know for a fact that Grocery Managers' at Fiesta and other managers at Fiesta routinely work far beyond the hours they are being paid to work . Managers pay is based on a 55 hour work week which is suppose to be 5.5 days per week which is the same as when I was there. I know for some managers 70-80 hours per week is common place not the exception. Perhaps this review would help more if it went to the labor department and not at Glassdoor.com

    Advice to Management

    Gather all information and don't jump to incorrect conclusions when terminating employees. Treat everyone (all races ) equally, it seemed when I was there minorities got far more chances and far more leniency than Caucasians.
