      Stocker Experience

      Pros

      Working at Restaurant Depot was a fast-paced challenging job. Communication skills are required to communicate with the forklift driver. Continuously an employee needs to maintain their aisle and keep stocking items using a pallet Jack. Overall, the job is fast-paced and requires some self-learning. Due to the fast-environment, you need to attend the requests of customers and stock items continuously with merely 30 mins break times. At the end of the day, a stocker needs to fix all the pallets in your aisle by moving everything to the front and brooming the floors along with removing damaged goods. I worked at the College Point Depot and it was definitely a fun experience to be a stocker.

      Cons

      Some downsides of working at the Restaurant Depot is definitely the workload of carrying 50lbs or more loads continuously and performing several other duties besides stocking. Some days, the management will assign you the responsibilities of 2 or 3 aisles at once, porter, or cashier role. This really helps you become a well-rounded individual, but you will never perform the same duty every day. During working on one aisle, the manager might add on more aisles where other workers did not come to work, or even tell you to go outside and sort the carts in the parking lot. I enjoyed working and pushing myself to work harder and achieve the best results. I just wanted to share my experience with working at College Point to understand the workload and my general experiences. Salary is also minimum wage so one should consider their choices, however hours as a stocker can go above 50 hours a week.

      Great company, Poor Management

      Pros

      Health Benefits 401k plus employer match accruable vacation time sick and personal days some positions are unionized management will work with your schedule

      Cons

      Free for all in there, management does not care or know what is going on unless their is a visitor from corporate coming to visit the branch, management will brush off any concerns or requests you have. They expect you to do your job plus any other job that is vacant, are quick to say that we need to work as a team when what they are actually asking is for you to suck it up and do work that would usually take 2-3 people to get done. If you are a hard worker, they will push you to your breaking point while the slackers are left to slack. As a fresh out of high school job, this ok for a year or two, but not worth it as a career. Men get higher pay rates and pay increases than their female counterparts in my experience. This could be a great place to work if only management was trained properly on their jobs and on how to treat and deal with their subordinates. Other branches are allot better and great places to work in, but that branch is not so much.

      Pros

      I was hired in quickly.

      Cons

      There was resentment between management that was felt. No one was motivated. Felt pressure to get ready for store visits by management to make us look good when we wernt good. Pay is above min wage, but not worth the stress.
