A decent place to work full of good people. Some of the management could have been better.
Asset Protection (Former Employee), Gainesville, VA – September 30, 2012
Pros: the best part of the job was the people i worked with.
Cons: the worst part of the job was the people i worked for.
All in all this was a good milestone in my job history. I made some good friends and learned from my mistakes. The only issue I had with the job is with the management. There were times where I felt picked on or unfairly punished for things out of my control. But it was never more than I could handle.
Part-time Sales Associate (Former Employee), 610 Exterior street – December 18, 2014
I really didn't learn too much in bjs, but the register. I really had to leave this job at the fact that it was too hard to grow in bjs whole sale club I was a cashier for about a year I was always looking for opening positions they told me they never had. When I get a job I want them to move me around different positions, I know I'm a quick learner – more... and always willing to learn new things so I wont have questions in the future. co workers were cool but they felt that same way about that job that's why most use to quit because they didn't really see progress in BJS. The hardest part about the job was that it was hard to grow in the area I was working in. The most enjoyable part of this job was how they actually every had food during our breaks on Fridays, it showed how they actually appreciate there co workers. – less
Demo/Cashier/Food Court (Former Employee), Warrensville Heights, OH – December 17, 2014
Pros: free lunches, holiday parties and schedule flexibility
Cons: low pay, no growth in position
A typical work day at Bjs Wholesale club was challenging in the beginning but it grew routine after awhile. As a cashier I would greet customers and ring up their items while offering them a rewards membership. Rewards membership were for members that shopped often but would receive 2% back on every dollar they spent. Personally, I felt like this helped – more... me with my salesman and communication skills. Also, I made members aware of their savings and the importance of using coupons. The days that I worked food court were the most enjoyable and I can honestly say thats where I gained most skill. My responsibilities were to properly cook and serve food, while constantly updating the cook and salvage log sheets. Temping foods and dating food items as well as food court items. Cleaning was a major part of the job as well. We had to know all the food illnesses that could occur if proper cooking and cleaning methods weren't in play. The managers really stayed on their A game when it came to food court but they always remained patient and very helpful if ever needed. Bjs is honestly a very enjoyable job, especially because of the fellow employees. They were all nice and fun to work with; we became a work family. – less
Credit Analyst (Current Employee), Westborough, MA – December 16, 2014
The work environment, management, coworkers, and typical day varies drastically depending which department you work in. The work was challenging at times, but is more than capable to do and repetitive at times. I have gained great corporate knowledge and experience with the initial part of my career, but am ready for the next challenge and advancement – more... in my career. – less
Tire bay technician Propane technician (Former Employee), Akron, OH – December 16, 2014
Cons: insuficient hours and poor management through out the company
this job left a lot to be desired. this job was a one person shift inside the tire shop. tire and propane jobs fell behind on time due to the fact that there was no additional help to cover all bases. one man shifts left me to operate the phones, register, walk-in customers, appointments, tire installations and repair and propane fill-ups. management – more... was not willing to give assistance or have another helper in the shop to help with the volume of customers.
I did enjoy being able to get the opportunity to receive 2 T.I.A level 400 certifications. these certifications allowed me to certify new employees to be capable to perform job duties on their own without supervision. – less
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), N Dartmouth, MA – December 15, 2014
Fair vacation and sick time. The bosses are usually people who started where you are. You can work your way up. The worst part is the volume. It is always busy. The break rooms are nice and usually packed with food for you. The people are average and there are enough of them that you'll find ones with similar interests.
Service Technician (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VA – December 9, 2014
Pros: free used tires, balance and rotates, and flat repairs
Cons: limited pay rate and advancement
The work environment at BJ's was rather relaxed and the typical work day was usually a steady flow of tire changes, the random flat repair or balance and rotate, or the propane customer. Management was friendly and assertive when they were present, but our direct supervisor spent more time in the warehouse than the automotive section. My co-workers – more... were a nice bunch to work with. Everybody was pretty laid back and down to earth. The most difficult part of the job for me would have probably been dealing with customer service issues when a manager was not readily available. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. – less
A promising, well- conducted company. I've learned to have patience and speak with a calm manor. Helping a customer with what is needed and providing excellent customer service is the key. Working with all different types of individuals made the experience versatile. I enjoyed being around my co-workers. It made the day complete.
Deli Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee), Northborough, MA – December 1, 2014
I worked as a cashier for 4 months there. I didn't mind the work, or the co-workers. The Benefits were great between holiday pay, birthday compensation, sick time and vacation after 30 days of continuous employment. The down sides are the Management. While i worked there nobody communicated with each other. Managers did not communicate with front line – more... supervisors and i was always told to do different things by different people then get told to only obey one order at a time. When i started school i told them i couldn't work certain times and when i handed in the availability form i was told if it fits the needs of the store i will get what i needed, and i didn't get they time i needed to go to class so i had to leave. – less
IBA Software EDI Consultant (Former Employee), Westborough, MA – November 27, 2014
Pros: the work, the managers, the team members that work for bj's
Cons: the commute on 495 was a challenge at times, especially during the winter months.
The people who work there, whether they are contractors or BJ'S Team Members, they all have a dedication to their job tasks. which makes BJ'S Wholesale Club #1 on my list of favorable places to work in New England.
