    I have been working at Food 4 Less full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to interact with the people you work with. Get along with coworkers, new friends, very caring...

    Cons

    It's a challenge working in the deli department, they want too much for people, especially if you working there, if we shot down around 8pm we have a whole hour to clean, sometimes we make it out on time and sometimes really late... They don't pay us all enough to really be doing a lot of things... And that goes for all the department...

    Advice to Management

    Have a mind to speak... Be heard... Know when to put your foot down and, defend yourself, don't let anyone stress you out...

    I worked at Food 4 Less part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're a college student or a high school student, they are somewhat flexible with hours.

    Cons

    You don't make your own hours and the hourly pay is not enough to get you out of your parents house. Your best bet is to go to college and major in engineering if you can afford it.

    I have been working at Food 4 Less part-time

    Pros

    Associates were great - managers weren't

    Cons

    Didn't adhere to what was discussed and agreed to in the interview (I was in college and let them know that I would be returning to school, but still could work during weekends, breaks, and holidays), managers micromanaged and wanted the impossible (ie wanted all the carts in when it's only one person outside, humid heat, super cold weather, and didn't want you to take breaks when you wanted), had to beg for more than one work shirt, and took forever to go to cashier school and once back, waited weeks to actually allow to cashier.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promises to employees and actually treat them fair. Don't reduce worker's hours and move them back to front end when they are going back to school and not other rules.
