    Pros

    It is flexible with your needs. If you need a day off, you will most likely get one.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of is having to deal with bad customers.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.

    Pros

    Fun. Easy. the people i worked with were nice and the customer were nice (most of the time). I truly have no serious complaints.

    Cons

    Be ready to work and stay on your feet ALL day. And they have no shame in asking you to stay overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Do not force overtime on people. One person should not be punished for another's tardiness.

    Pros

    Great pay. easy to advance if work hard. one of the most stable companies around. almost completely inhouse jobs for just about every field

    stretches you to the max. if you can do something... you are always expected to.

    Advice to Management

    give stockers some slack. we have lives too. warehouse issues need to be resolved. more rewards for a good job

    Pros

    The benefits are great. They work great with school schedules. Flexible hours. Room for advancement. I have full medical, dental, vison, life and accidental death insurance and a 401K.

    Cons

    Some of the management staff seems to be imcompetent or just don't care about the partners. Some play favorites with Partners. Not all, but some.

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate the 4 hour bagging training class. This OJT style of bagging training is a joke. Because new partners are not being trained properly on bagging skills and customers get upset and I don't blame them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay was decent, management was cool - would definitely have stayed if I didn't move out of state.

    Cons

    There were really no cons, except towards the end of my employment there, they drastically cut my hours which sucked...

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, above average pay. The other people that work there are very nice, and we always managed to have fun while working.

    Cons

    During the holidays you will have to work a lot since that is the comany's bussiest season by far. The pay raise system seems weird to me, not based on performace as much as how long you have worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what parters say, and make sure people who are skilled are getting pay increases, not just those who are able to work full time.
