Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSMarch 13, 2017
Great company to work for. They have great benefits, flexible hours, opportunity to get a promotion. This is a very large company and I prefer smaller companies because you get to know people better but the team I got to work with was great just didn't know many people outside my team. I left this job to take one closer to home with better pay.

ASSISTANT II (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSMarch 4, 2017
In my experience, it felt like being in Jr High again. Very clique-ish and immature. Not for everyone. Some of the perks were nice.

Horrible
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Southaven, MSMarch 3, 2017
Fast paced environment that puts you on a production scale. Heavy boxes with long hours that is a second shift job. Management does poorly on training new employees. Equipment is down more time than it is used. The pay is the only thing that keeps employees motivated.

Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSJanuary 27, 2017
The best thing about Associated Wholesale Grocer is the compensation. A typical day at work was very stressful. The management was average. The culture was great and everyone got along. The hardest part of the job was trying to move fast without dropping a pallet. For me, the most enjoyably part of the job was the heavy lifting. It was like getting exercise.

Could be a lot better.
Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Southaven, MSJanuary 15, 2017
Get there to get your equipment so someone who doesn't have any wont take yours. Some of the management care more about there problems than that of the employees. I did learn how to work at a steady pace and a fast pace to hit production. My coworkers were the best part of the job because we had to work together sometimes to get the work out in time. Its a hard job so you need the support of your coworkers to push you to finish the job.
