Average grocery store position
Cashier/Scanning Deputy (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – July 11, 2015
Food City was everything one would expect from an hourly grocery store position. My job was primarily working the cash register, but later I took a position where I would sometimes work overnight shifts updating price tags and displays. Nothing about the job was particularly difficult, although the night shifts would sometimes drag on much longer than they were scheduled to, due to an insufficient number of employees working on a given night. The rate of pay was not necessarily competitive, and other grocery stores in the area (many of which were unionized) tended to offer higher pay and more benefits, although upper management at Food City seems proud of how they treat their employees. All in all, the position was not bad.
They pay you for every minute of work you do, sometimes you get coupons for free products
Shifts often exceeded scheduled time, pay was not competitive
