    Pros

    Employee discount on groceries, friendly coworkers, excellent benefits

    Cons

    Really annoying customers - especially at the sandwich bar! They're sitting there watching you make a sandwich, and you're going as fast as you can, and there's a huge line.... A lot of our customers are fantastic. But some are really demanding, or don't speak English very well. It's hard to be the only person on the floor having to make sandwiches, slice meat, work the hot and cold cases.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more money, and increase the amount of staff in the deli. Also, watching corny videos of people making sandwiches ONCE doesn't qualify as "training" in my opinion. The videos were mostly useless and probably cost the company lots of money to make.
