    Pretty Good Company

    Pros

    It's a good company to work for. Good benefits and great pay. They start at 15$ an hour but you can negotiate more if you have experience. They've been struggling to hire employees lately due to pandemic, so they're short handed alot but it's a good job.

    Cons

    If you have a boss who is hard to work with, I recommend going straight to upper management before it escalates because they will make it hard to work for them.

    Pros

    It pays decent for a college student who doesn't want to work full time & offers opportunities to learn different skills.

    Cons

    You may need to exorcise prolific self-preservation due to having to work alongside the cashiers who may not be performing up to standard.

    Decent pay for a grocery store job. Other employees are typically great people

    Run... don't walk...to any other employer

    Pros

    -There are some nice, smart people that work there -Sort of stock options that are super confusing -You're allowed to dress like an absolute slob in the office and no one will care

    Cons

    Benefits in general -NO paid holidays. That is correct. You WILL be expected to be in the office on Christmas (pre-covid and assume post) unless you want to use your PTO. -PTO is on an accrual basis- But don't worry, magnanimous leadership will let you take days unpaid. -Below industry salary. Significantly below. They will sell you on "working for a cool brand" It's not that cool. -No 401k matching -Lack of diversity- but if you're a white male you're good- Most often saw white men get promoted. -Absolutely a good old boys club. Lotttts of mansplain in meetings. -Like most big companies, they execute an "engagement survey" annually, which results in horrific results year after year. However there are minimal if no changes to address the abhorrent feedback. -Perceive a general lack of ethics across the board Feels icky carrying out some of the things we're asked to do. -Non existant onboarding -Absurd turnover -Others taking credit for your work -I have witnessed on at least two occasions men raising their voices (see yelling) at colleagues in the office in front of others, for an uncomfortably long time
