    I worked at IGA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was a great work experience. Small town, full service grocery store.

    Cons

    None really. It is a challenge to provide full service grocery and other conveniences in such a small store, efficiency is key.

    I worked at IGA (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Jim's IGA was my first job and it was a great one to have. It's family owned and the building has been around for a really long time so it holds fond memories for a lot of people in the community. The hours were flexible and I really enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at IGA part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a very fun environment and you meet a lot of interesting people. It is a great first job and the training was great. I learned a lot from this company that has taken me far.

    Cons

    It's a very low hourly pay, but it's great for someone in high school or college. It's open most holidays unfortunately.

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

    Pros

    The people that work at Cubbys makes the job a real easy going atmosphere. As long as you work hard you will love this place. If you work hard you can work your way up into whatever department and to any position.

    Cons

    Its out of the way, but hey, Talkeetna is out of the way. Its a good thing!

    Advice to Management

    Good Work on a more recent start up grocery store. Greg is Great!!
