Service Operation's Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – August 29, 2016
This was a great company, because they understood work/life balance and also that hard working employees deserve the opportunity to move up. Management was always ready to step in and help educate and there was not a lot of drama.

Bakery Manager (Former Employee) – Richland, WA – August 25, 2016
Typical day involved taking orders from customers, restocking shelves, baking product, answering phone calls, putting away freight, ordering product, and some food preparation. Management was okay, but not the best. If I couldn't resolve a problem, I had absolutely no help or support. When I first started working as a manager, I had no management training, but was expected to know how to run a department. My coworkers were great! Hardest part of the job was balancing my schedule, especially on days that freight arrived. Most weekends I was the baker, opener, and cake decorator because we were short staffed. Management didn't seem to care and offered no help. Most enjoyable part of the job was working weekdays and having a whole team to work with. I learned that, as far as that store goes, you are the only person you can rely on.
Working with a great department team, good benefits
Fun place to work if you have good coworkers, but with management its almost impossible to move up.
Cashier and Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) – Glendora, CA – August 25, 2016
I came into this company as a courtesy clerk: bagging, carts, sweeping, etc. Now, two years later, I am still in the same position and not for lack of work ethic but for lack of opportunity to grow.
Work load is not evenly distributed, more work is given to those who they know will complete it while the others slack off and those who work are not compensated.
Management abuses cheap labor by making courtesy clerks learn and perform as a cashier (actual cashiers get paid more and receive a minimum of 24 hours a week) that way they don't have to compensate us by actually promoting us to a cashier and dignify that by calling us "combos" (combination of cashier and courtesy clerk, but getting paid and receiving the minimum hours of a courtesy clerk which is only 16)
While cashiering, if you want to get paid the higher wage for the xx hours you worked as a cashier you have to write an edit slip that day for that pay.
Additionally, when its busy and I get thrown into a register, the work that was previously scheduled to me as a courtesy clerk (sweeps, carts, bagging, etc) is somehow still my responsibility and we are reprimanded if those don't get done even if the management is the one who took me away from it in the first place.
work around school schedules, if you're lucky good coworkers
Open all year(thanksgiving, christmas) Difficult to move up, management uses schedules as discipline, bad hours
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – August 19, 2016
Best job I've had, job security is very good, pay raise happens a lot. I went from $8.01/hour to $10.95/hour within 9 months. Its not one of those jobs where you hate waking up everyday and you hate your life when you arent working. Very easy to leave work behind and live your own life.
Breaks, time in a half after 8 hour shifts, benifits, security
Lack of discipline towards employees makes it hard to get rid of bad coworkers
Friendly work environment with great customer service

DELI ATTENDANT/COURTESY CLERK (Former Employee) – Littleton, CO – August 17, 2016
I started out helping at the deli. I would help prepare and package food. After a month, the management decided to have me help bag groceries as well. These would be taken to your car if needed. I learned about food preparation and interpersonal communication.
The managers were friendly, helpful and fun. The downside was being laid off after three months. There was a problem with having enough staff. It was fun to work there.
