    I worked at Key Food (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, and other store staff...Great management (in most cases). Customers are very nice and friendly also.

    Cons

    Everyone is basically part time. No matter how great you are at you job you never advance any higher. The store managers never admit their mistakes, and act like children. Also employees with connections within the store do as they want and are rarely ever held accountable for their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Realize when you have great workers. Learn to fess up to your faults, and stop letting personal feelings interfere with business. Customers happiness should be priority followed by the happiness of your employees.

    I worked at Key Food (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Store was in a nice area in Downtown Brooklyn near the promenade, so it was a good place to earn extra cash for the summer. Coworkers were friendly and store was generally clean. Got to make friends with regular customers.

    Cons

    Management could be condescending. Also lots of customers angry about sales, but that is pretty standard for any customer service job.
