    I worked at Northgate Markets part-time

    Pros

    They gave me decent hours to begin with.

    Cons

    Management and other people higher up often imply superiority and status in the workplace, allotting for much confusion in the work process of store and shift. Advocating for excellent customer service and receiving no praise from management. Working with rude customers and associates. The kind of workplace with hovering and monitoring associates.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your sense of acknowledgement towards your employees so they can be happy at work and actually have a reason to work.

    I worked at Northgate Markets full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A good place to get job experience including witching departments. the job is very stable regarding regular work hours. If you're a teenager just out of high school i would recommend it.

    Cons

    Very negative environment. The managers rather intimidate than help. Salaries are always very low including raises are often 10 cents a year.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

    I worked at Northgate Markets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The healthcare benefits are affordable and great if you managed to go to Mexico for the healthcare program that they offer.

    Cons

    The company mostly employees Mexicans and minorities, which the majority are uneducated and unskilled at their job, which makes it hard to work with. In addition, a good size of the employees do not speak English, which constitutes like 40% of the clients. Lastly, the majority of the employees live in Mexico and cross the border everyday, which usually result in employees that live in the US to work overtime due to the unavailability of the Mexican employees . Lastly, they rarely respect break times.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees who live in the US and that speak proper English.
