Group Manager (Former Employee) – Sisseton, SD – January 14, 2013
I worked for Alco for 4 years. During my last 4 months there, I was promoted to Group Manger for the Hardlines Department. There is always something to do there, we always got stuff accomplished. Sometimes we were short staffed but we pulled through. Everyone was family and treated with respect. If we got new employees, they always felt at home right away because we would do our best to keep them comfortable. My co-workers were the best along with the customers. Our store was in a somewhat small town, but with regular customers, we built friendships from this store. Of course, the only hard part about the job is unloading truck and trying to figure where to put everything after the stockroom is full. But, everyday...there is something new going on and the customers make everything fun. We always go out of our way to find the products our customers needed that were on sale or something that they needed right away, but couldn't find it themselves.
