    Management is great!

    Aug 3, 2022 - Sales Associate/Cashier in Fort Myers, FL

    Pros

    It won the best grocery store chain for 2021-present through USA TODAY readers. I'm proud to be a team member working with my co-workers. The Manager on duty always makes sure we take our breaks and lunches during our shift. That provides us with a good working environment!

    Cons

    After receiving customer service compliments from our guests, it would be nice to receive compensation after a certain number are received.

    Pros

    Since I’ve been there the only thing I see is a few people say high and ask how you doing management is the worst

    Cons

    Not properly training people who work on the floor. Everyone has there way but no matter what things don’t change. Especially rotating product . No one gives any credit for jobs well done which I believe lowers your moral or welling to help in other areas

    Not bad overall

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great customers and atmosphere. Easy transfer process, even to a different state. In-store discount.

    Cons

    Probably just the fact that everyone that comes in to work is stretched so thin, you really don’t want to burn yourself out trying to work the hours. During busier times you may be needed to work in more than one department if the store is short handed but no one was ever really promoted or given raises. Raises were only once a year and had to be given the green light from corporate even though corporate came in periodically throughout the year.

    Wouldn't recommend working there to anyone

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get a decent discount of 20% and there are some nice people there

    Cons

    You have to work 3 mo full time to get benefits and accrue vacation, so I'm left without health insurance. They hire very questionable people that I do not feel safe around, I could've made several reports by now. The managers don't care about you and will squeeze every bit of work out of you that they can, not worth the measly pay. The environment is disgusting: so much cross contamination and carelessness, and so many food items are old. Cleaning is never as thorough or frequent as it should be and there is black mold. Bad place to work and I'd never shop there.

    Pros

    Diversity in coworkers, customers and products. Food is fresh and produce dept is fresh with items throughout!

    Cons

    Challenging getting time off when long term employees request so many Fri & Mon's off. Should be a limit as to how many in a quarter at least.
