    Pros

    Free food, growing company, engagement with employees

    Cons

    High turnover, including management, Lower than average salary locally. No loyalty to employees whether they've been hired recently or been there 15 years.

    Advice to Management

    Can't be a "family business" when you're firing people all the time.

    I worked at ShoppersChoice.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The free food before it became sub-standard and they started cooking below quality food to make it stretch and they would not limit the slouchy fat employees from getting 2nd, 3rd, and 4th helpings. People who would had breaks at a later time in the day would not have anything to eat. True it s a good gesture but it was not as great as they make it sound. The Uber service is a job. They don't disclose that you can only use the Uber service 3 times per year. You have to wait 90 days to get insurance , which is so expensive $100.00 plus for one person, and $200.00 plus for 2 people. They pay $16.00 just to take it back in the insurance. They use profuse profanity all the managers you will be Bee's and F-bombs every day. Unprofessional unfriendly, You get 24 hours of PTO for your 1st year. and the paid time grilling in a joke . They tell you a bunch of stuff to hook you into talking the job. they are nice on the interview . but very back stabbing . I don't think the owner knows what goes on. They just throw crap at the wall and whatever sticks is what they go with.

    Cons

    they lie, they are very back stabbing, they will be nice on the interview and stab you in the back once you take the job. they will hire you for one position they have you doing all kinds of jobs that was never discussed during your interview. This company has a high turn over rate

    Advice to Management

    The owner needs to get rid of all his friends and management because they are clueless. He is growing and has potential. He needs to hire someone from one of the big online companies or have them come in as a free lance consultant because those dummies he has has there will ruin him.

    Pros

    On sit cook, good pay, and decent hours.

    Cons

    Unorganized business model. On person says do something one way, then another person tells you to do something else. They have you go on ridiculous amounts of training but won't allow you time to actually do your workload. You may only be at you desk 1 to 2 hours an they expect you to get 8 hours of work done. I went on medical leave to have a minor surgery. While I was gone no one was working my load, so I came back to piles of work. One week after I cam back I got fired for not staying on top of my workload.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together!!

    I have been working at ShoppersChoice.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work perks. On site cook for employees, traveling to trade shows, product testing, etc.

    Cons

    No set business model. Policy, procedure, and management changes on a weekly basis. Homemade software system that is from the 90's. Everyone is on edge because people get fired all the time. No room for upward mobility.
    Big business wanted to portray themselves as "Mom and Pop". No growth in the right places. Expected to work 50 hours a week and none of this is appreciated. Have to ask to get up from your desk to go to the bathroom.
