    I have been working at Longos full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity if you work hard. Customer service is number one priority. Good attitude with customer and fellow employees make it fun to work here.

    Cons

    Some negative and intimidating people cause unnecessary trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Coach managers before problems get out of control. Aim should be to encourage growth of problem areas not to get rid of people!

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Longos part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy work, yearly raises, bonuses around holidays, friendly staff, flexible schedule

    Cons

    disconnect between department managers, store managers, and day time workers makes it hard to talk to them as a person, very "bossy". Politics in the department are annoying to listen to and worse to be involved in. it always seems like someone has to complain about another person even for stupid things. It will take you forever to work your way up positions here

    Advice to Management

    managers need to work together and with their employees to be effective, lots of them like to micro manage us too much where it feels controlling. Let your employees work. If you've trained them right they'll know what to do. Some managers know that and do it right and some don't.

    I have been working at Longos part-time

    Pros

    Great first job I’ve been here since I was in high school. The hours are super flexible, you get the time off when you need it. Made a lot of friends there that will be in my life for a long time.

    Cons

    The management relies too much on you. They say they don’t have the hours for you, but expect everything to be done fast. They pick favourites. If they don’t like you they won’t give you the time of day. Very cliquey

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees better! The turnover rate is super high because you don’t train your employees enough. Hire enough people so you have the coverage. You rely too much on staff to do all the work, but you don’t have the hours or people to help do the work. Pay more attention to your employees
