    I have been working at Foodarama Supermarkets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Weekly Pay
    -Some customers are friendly
    -Some managers (a small few) actually do care about employees
    -Some employees are nice to work with

    Cons

    -Personal relations between workers and management seem to play a roll in business decisions
    -They mistreat employees too often
    -There seems to be a lot of gossip about employees and some claim management is the source
    -They move you from one department to another. This would not be a problem if you had training in the department you are going to which no one seems to offer
    -CEO seems to be unaware of how the store really performs despite his visits
    -You are either given too many hours to balance between here and personal life or not enough hours to pay for the most basic necessities
    -Some customer are very rude they like to take problems out on you directly
    -If you call out sick they fight with you over it on the phone and still expect you to come in
    -Schedule change weekly so there is no planning for personal life. In fact they like to call you on your days off or days you are unavailable in order for you to work
    -The store closes ONLY 1 day a year. Expect to work the other 364 days
    -You starting wage isn't very good at all
    -Management skills seem very poor it is almost non-existent
    -We have a union that seems to do little for the employees

    Advice to Management

    -Become aware of how this store is doing
    -Close the store more often during holidays or at least give employees half days aside from thanksgiving and easter
    -Offer a better wage for workers and be more flexible with hours as you claim to do in advertisements
    -Re-train your management staff so they have the skills needed to handle employees and customers

    I worked at Foodarama Supermarkets part-time

    Pros

    -Coworkers are pretty cool
    -Pay is slightly better than you'd expect from the job

    Cons

    Managers are a mixed bag, with most of them being godawful. Customers also treat you like absolute dirt. Management generally treats you slightly worse than legally required. You'll probably start to hate yourself if you have this job for more than about a month.

    Advice to Management

    Quit the micromanagement.
