Night Stock (Former Employee), Crossville, TNJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: good hours
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work was to come in prepared and stock shelves. I was one of the guys to make sure the store look impeccable for the customers the following morning. My co-workers did an awesome job. The hardest part was staying awake all night.

productive, always put the customer first.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Whitesburg, KYDecember 26, 2014
Pros: discounts.
Cons: bad management, very poor hours, poor pay, schedule changes without being notified.
Food City is a fairly cheap place to shop, if you have a food city card you can get discounts. You do not get good hours or god pay. Some employees had no respect for the customers.

Job not a career
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Sevierville, TNNovember 22, 2014
Pros: fast paced great co-workers and meet great people from all over the world.
Cons: management was disfunctional.
Daily experience was to take care of customers which I cared about and loved to meet people from all over the world. I learned to work in a fast pace tourist environment. I loved coming to work cause of my co-workers and the customers I got to know as great people to have a work based customer employee relationship. The lack of functionality of the management staff they never new what the other was doing even when they were standing with in feet of each other.

Good management.
Cashier (Former Employee), Turner, MENovember 1, 2014
Pros: we got two breaks and the store closed at nine.
Cons: nothing.
A typical day would be going in and starting up the register. I would basically tend to customers needs and check out their groceries and bag them. Sometimes I would go and round up carts outside, along with stocking shelves when business was slow. I learned how to run the register, to zone shelves when you're not busy, and to always rotate groceries when zoning. My management was awesome. They always had everything under control and always had room for you to advance if you were wanting to try a new section of the store. My co-workers were all easy to get along with and loved to joke around. But they were all very helpful and responsible as well. The hardest part was dealing with huge checks, because sometimes you would need to ask management to get more money if we didn't have it in the draw. The most enjoyable part was bagging the groceries and seeing the customers leaving happy.

Great first job opportunity
Cashier (Former Employee), Kingston, TNSeptember 22, 2014
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.

Working at Food City
Pharmacy Technician and Florist (Current Employee), Blountville, TNSeptember 15, 2014
Well a typical day at work involves doing the best I can to complete the tasks before me.
I've learned in order to be successful you have to remain calm when a situation occurs, and just try your best. I've learned that you cannot please everyone,so just hang in there.
My co-workers are great. I couldn't have asked for better people to work with.
Management,Some are good people to work and I enjoy it and some hardly acknowledge your existence and could have a better attitude and treat everyone the same.
The hardest part for me is seeing people unhappy at times.
The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that you put a big smile on your customers faces and get the job done.
