Shift Leader (Current Employee), glen oaks, ny – November 9, 2013
Managers thought highly of them selves and treated the other employees below them like they were specially challenged; talked down to them.
In a typical day of work, would come in and start working immediately, got along with most of my co workers if not all of them. The hardest part of my job is taking out the trash and having to bring it through – more... the store when I could just easily open the loading dock gate and take the trash out thru there. The only reason I don't do that is because one of the managers who I think is very lazy, tells me no and that I am not aloud to do that.
The most enjoyable part about my job is talking amongst my fellow co workers, they have the craziest imaginations ever. its so fun because I am a multi-tasker, so when I talk I get my work done as well as having a good conversation. – less

A typical day at work would be helping customers find what they need if they are having trouble locating it.

I helped get rid of items that were expired.The – more... assistant manager was great. He understood and listened and did his best to help us. He was such a caring and great person.
