        The store manager lets you come to work drunk, there is no accountability in the store, only the store favorites though!


        The store manager lets people come into work drunk. There is no training. They lie to you and tell you full time is a minimum of 35 hours, then schedule you 30 hours saying that’s full time status. They hire management that has ZERO grocery experience. Just because they have ‘retail’ experience, does not mean they have what it takes to run a grocery store. The store manager likes to hide the legal state posters about right to work and equal opportunities. So if you want your worker rights violated, work here. If you want to work with a store manager who can’t be bothered to work 40 hours a week since they live 90 minutes from the store. I love working for managers who just sit on their phone all day, make people stop working on projects, so they can do the work the store manager doesn’t want to. Come to work tired, go sleep under the bulk bins or in the bathroom! The amount of time theft and employee theft if awful. Department managers sell out dated and bad meat from the meat department. This company is awful as a whole, STAY AWAY AND DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. If you like working with racists and misandrist, this is the company for you! If you want to waste your time and be gaslighted, this is the company for you!

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
