    Overworked, Underpaid, Not Enough Breaks

    May 5, 2022 - Grocery Stocker/Cashier

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Minuscule employee discount on brands more expensive than Whole Foods

    Cons

    - Too much to do for one human being to handle in one shift - They only hire one person to be closing shift and then overwork them into the ground, expecting every shelf to be have product faced towards the front for three hours straight. - Even if you are not hired to stock dairy and frozen, somehow it's still your responsibility to face it? (Even other grocery stores have their own designated employees for this) - Management has little to no care about the fact the we are all human and need to sit/take another break because our feet hurt - Customers can be rude, they don't care if you are busy with something, especially Instacart shoppers. - Old rich people/nurses and elitists shop here frequently because they are the only one's who can afford the food prices. - The pay is terrible for the amount of work, especially with with inflation. - You are litterally better off going to college or technical school or a trade then wasting time with this company.

    Good company, bad store

    May 2, 2022 - Bakery Clerk in Cedar Park, TX

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company has good values, very willing to work with employees, everyone is always super sweet ang great personalities, fun events of dressing up in themes and employee benefits.

    Cons

    My only problem was my immediate team I worked for in the Bakery Department at the Cedar Park, Tx location. I loved being around everyone else working in the store, but my team lacked communication, would love to talk mess behind your back, wouldn't even train well, no leadership skills; and they have been working together for a couple years now, so they were pretty set on just knowing how to work with each other. The standards changed day to day and management wouldn't even fulfill their responsibilities in their roles on a consistent day to day basis. Also, they don't pay well for each position and the bonuses happen every 6-months, and it's only by a .10-.25 cent difference.

    Dont bother

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck and flexable schedules

    Cons

    Want to work for a company that micromanages you, or never gives you the proper amount of hours you should get in your department and instead uses other employees that are not trained in your department? Then this is the place for you. Do you want to work for a place that no matter how good your numbers are and measured metrics are corporate will always visit the store assuming you are doing things wrong. The department trainer has a borderline personality disorder. Do you want to be blamed for the supplier being out of what you order? Then this is the place for you. Do you want to work for the worst group of store management ever assembled? This is the place for you. Do you want to work for a manager that runs around the store putting random things on manager special which causes problems for scan and the dept manager? This is the place for you. The company does show its appreciation for employees every so often by having team mate appreciation where they put our close dated or out of date merchandise for employees to eat.

Including a 30 minute lunch if you work 6 hours and up shift. Head cashier starts at $13.25 depending on experience

    Cons

    Managers are impatient Does not train cashiers/ head cashiers well Breaks are not always promised Busy store especially during holidays Head cashier/ Cashiers have to get carts out of the lot if the cart attendant is not there. If promoted to a higher pay rate.( example cashier to head cashier) Process will take long.

    Pros

    I love being on the move, so I'm really enjoying it. The crew here is lovely to work with. Also, I have Asperger's and ADHD. The staff has been very understanding, and though I don't ask for a lot of accommodation, all requests have been met without hesitation, for which I am most grateful. They are very understanding about needed time off, and I have never once been made to feel guilty or threatened for taking time off. Having had 13 years in retail, this attitude is new and novel. I appreciate it.

    Cons

    Not a con for me, but it may be for some: I average walking between 4 and 6 miles a shift filling orders. Keep that in mind when applying for this kind of position.

    No what they pretend to be

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Scheduling is decent and customers are great. This is a job not a career.

    Cons

    Management does not care unless you are part of their"click". Most people are promoted because of who they know. My supervisor has changed dates to extend the shelf life on fresh items and has even put items out that was left off refrigeration over night. It was similar with the supervisor before as well. There is no support from management to fix any concerns. It is extremely stressful when you are off one day and have to double check everything to make sure customers are not getting bad products that may make them sick. When speaking to management about these issues you are looked down on because you are not being supportive. This isn't a once in awhile thing it happens weekly.
