    I worked at King Kullen Grocery part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great way to gain real experience. A lot of job interviews I have been on have been ecstatic about my customer service experience!

    Cons

    I have worked in multiple offices and a lot of head bookkeepers do things differently, which can be confusing.

    Pros

    Can learn to get you in a career type company. Like a stepping stone company. People have done that and made amazing leaps.

    Cons

    Getting smaller and smaller and allowing the competition to make amazing gains. Also a lot of weight placed on people with little to no experience in subject areas.

    Advice to Management

    Consider listening to people who truly care about the company and not the paycheck collector types.
