Bagger/Stocker (Former Employee) – Greeneville, TN – July 19, 2016
Working at food city as you can guess was easy. After a month or so working there I started doing nights so I was the closing bagger. Usually I would help stock the shelves. My co-workers was amazing to work with and im still friends with most of them. Very good work environment.
I drive 45 minutes into town, punch in, take my coat off and put my apron on. I take a moment to do my "beginning of day" electronic tasks on the handheld computer. Then, I pull my cart of cake out of the freezer. My boss arrives about thirty minutes or more after I do, and by the time she arrives, I have already pulled my out of date cakes to slice for the dollar table, and I have put away the bags and utensils that were washed the day before. Then I make a list of all things missing off of the floor and in my case. Then, I pull my orders-for-the-day out of the box and tape them to the counter in front of me. I then proceed to fill my floors, case, help customers, do my orders, answer phones, slice meat or run the register on deli side, and other odds and ends running around the store. By the end of the day, I have everything full, plus back-ups. I crush my cardboard and wash my utensils. I wipe my counters and make sure my lids are sealed tight, and that left over cake has been wrapped and placed back on the cart, to go into the freezer. I finish with sweeping my workspace and making sure that everything was the way I found it when I arrived. I do my "end of day" on the handheld, I clock out, and I go home.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – February 11, 2016
A typical day would be cleaning the store, running a register, gathering buggies, bagging people's groceries, stocking the store, and unloading trucks. I learned how to stock, run a register, and how to unloaded trucks. I disliked my managers because they were biased and sexist. I loved my co-workers. I made friends with alot of them. I did not get paid enough nor did I get enough hours. I loved my friends and everyone I worked with except the managers.
Really friendly people, helped you learn, always willing to help

When I worked for food city I really liked the people there. They trained you to service their customers. Everyone was very helpful with any question I had, and was always willing to help a employee learn.
Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Galax, VA – January 21, 2016
Never a dull day at work, just never busy. The entirety of my days spent there waiting for customers to ask for meat or cheese to be cut. Occasionally I would actually get to make food, such as potato and macaroni salad. Nothing ever difficult or fun. Then the rest of the day was just spent cleaning the slicer, and sanitizing other equipment.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – January 13, 2016
I was a C.S.M. at Food City in Knoxville Tennessee for 1.5 years. Typical day at work was counting tills, spot checks on tills, cash checks, money orders, drops, deposits, answer phone, customer service office, manager of the front of the store. I learned more about being understanding to the customers concerns. the managers were great too many to name. the co-workers were awesome and always on top of anything that they were to do or that i asked them to do. the hardest part was being pregnant and on my feet for a full 8 hour shift but did it no complaints and enjoyed it. The most enjoyable part was seeing a customer walk out of the store satisfied with their visit.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Lenoir City, TN – December 16, 2015
The staff taught me very well, they explained how to do the job very well. They are very nice and will help you when needed. The only thing I didn't like was that we didn't get any discounts at all. The job itself was very enjoyable. The part I liked was that I received a high pay than minimum wage when I started.
