    Pros

    -Easy job, simple tasks -Fast to learn - Pays pretty well - Gives you a good amount of hours

    Cons

    -Food safety is not taken seriously - Not very sanitary and not many precautions are taken in food departments, hand washing not enforced properly when employees are switching tasks. -Training is inconsistent, rules are overlooked, other employees do the job "their way", there is no set in stone list that is being followed. Very unorganized. -Lack of first aid -Rude, harassing employees that have been with the company 2 to 10 years treated as a priority, get away with questionable, unbalanced behavior. -Harrassment and threats not taken seriously - uncomfortable and anxiety ridden work environment due to poor management and employees allowed to say whatever they want and get away with having a terrible attitude

    Good starting job

    May 25, 2022 - Online Pickup Associate

    Pros

    The work is simple and relatively peaceful. You get into a nice rhythym scanning items through the halls by yourself for a few hours. If you want you can even put in some earbuds and listen to some music. Depending on when you work, you may have frequent downtime which may be a con depending on how you see it. The pay is fine, not great, but fine. Mainly just good for an entry level retail job, although you get a 50 cent raise every 6 months.

    Cons

    The pay is still not the best. Many of my coworkers were unpleasant to be around, and a couple were rumored to be on work release. There is often a horrible, unbearably bad smell coming out of the trash chute around a third of the time. Sometimes you will be asked to work shifts at 6am which may not be enjoyable for some.
