Pros: good first job opportunity, decent pay, decent hours depending on employee reputation and habits.
Cons: not the best insurance, not very many full time opportunities.
Food City was my very first job. It's a wonderful first job, and they established a start for me. There are a few promotional opportunities depending on how long you stay. They work with your schedule and they give you a good amount of hours depending on how you are as an employee. There is some micromanagement, but it'd almost be chaotic without it. You get to know the regular customers and that's the best part about it. The regulars make your day just a little better.
The pay is decent for this type of job. They pay above minimum wage for people with no experience and they tend to pay more than even that if you do have experience. There aren't a lot of full time opportunities unless you become established with it for a long time, so if you have hopes of a full time job, this isn't the best place. But it is a wonderful way to gain experience if you're in high school or just graduating, college, a retiree, or just looking for a small part time job.
This job does offer insurance, even to part timers, but it isn't the greatest. It's $25/week and only covers 80%, but it is a good alternative to a huge deductible.
