    I have been working at Mollie Stone's Markets part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice for the most part if you mind your own business.
    I suppose there are opportunities for growth, I've yet to see any but I've heard stories.
    Closing Management is always fun to be around/interact with.

    Cons

    -Working in the kitchen and being understaffed and still expected to produce the same results as a fully staffed kitchen is annoying.
    -Such high expectations for understaffed kitchen, yet refuses to hire anyone else.
    -Management doesn't really care about anything as long as you are making them money.
    -Pay isn't all that great honestly.
    -Hours aren't divided fairly among part-timers.
    -Company is VERY stingy when it comes to hours(unless full-time) and overtime. (Part-Time is literally 24 hours...)
    -Mandatory Union, if you refuse to join they'll keep you off the schedule (i.e., fire you )
    -Pretty much everyone is disgruntled... except maybe the managers.
    -Most people who've worked there for 10+ years tend to have an ego/lack of patience/hate life.

    Advice to Management

    -Stop and try to figure out how to make employees more happy and productive and less bitter.

    -The company makes plenty enough money for you to pay your employees better, I work with someone who has worked for you for 20 years and can barely pay rent for their studio...
    Some people are trying to make a living/support a family with this job, maybe you could help em out by paying them a little more yeah?

    Pros

    it was a job, guy who was my manager is now gone

    Cons

    the manager would ask sometimes ask girls on the team to wash the walls for the sole purpose of looking at their behinds. never remember any of the guys getting any such request.

    Advice to Management

    continue to fire sleazeballs.

    I worked at Mollie Stone's Markets full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great learning atmosphere with plenty of opportunities for growth. Owners work at the corporate office with a very hands on approach in the day to day operations of the company. Many employees have started as an entry level clerk and worked their way up to management. A growing company with tons of opportunity for those willing to take on the challenge.

    Cons

    I wish that they gave more PTO (sick) time and observed more of the annual holidays. A more flexible work schedule with staggered start and end times would be a great plus to people commuting in and around the Bay Area. Sometimes it's those little things that make a big difference.

    Pros

    Very strong sense of camaraderie between all levels of the company . Generations of families have worked with the company also creating a family like culture throughout . Having a strong CEO,upper management and a killer HR coordinator was also a plus.

    Cons

    There is some opportunity for streamlining certain corporate processes , which will come in time .

    Advice to Management

    Keep spreading the company values and mission statement .
