    I have been working at Golden Pantry full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can get 40 hours or more if willing to work at numerous stores. Or if your store is short staffed. Customers are usually really nice.

    Cons

    They hire anyone that can pass background and drug test. So most people are lazy. Customers are impatient and at times rude to deal with. The company really doesn't carw about their employees at all. Working 3rd shift you are all alone and the company has been robbed a lot. They know better they just dont care about your safety. NO BREAKS. How is that even legal?

    Advice to Management

    Actually put 2 people on 3rd shift where it is a safety concern. You guys have been robbed enough to know better but you just dont care. People have been killed and still they dont care enough to add a 2nd person to 3rd shift. Tells me all i need to know.

    I have been working at Golden Pantry part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can't really think of any. I guess it is a job, right? However, if you go to college this would do for some expenses on the side

    Cons

    No perks, nothing is free for employees at all.

    Advice to Management

    Give gas cards for employees to assist additional training in Athens. Give raises in increments. No 25cents raise randomly

    I worked at Golden Pantry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job for most part, my area of town was fine.

    Cons

    Expect to take a lot of crap from customers, long hours. Explaining why we charge twice as much for a product than the guy across the street. We usually said, "we are really proud of our products".

    Advice to Management

    Managers were fine, its upper management. They make very bad business decisions. Especially in the marketing department. I give the company another 2-3 years. You can't charge 20-30% more than your competitors then say its the small guy behind the counters fault.

    Advice to Management

    Be more humane to your employees...close early on Thanksgiving...and close for Christmas. No one can be that money hungry
