Seafood Associate (Current Employee), Wise, VAOctober 1, 2013
Pros: fun atmosphere, depending on your people skills
Cons: working in the cold most of the day
Set up meat and seafood displays. Stock all product in seafood cases on sales floor. In water and cold temperatures for most of the work day. Management is fun to work with, coworkers more fun depending on your people skills. The cold is the hardest part of the job. Talking to new people is the best part of the job.

Counter Sales (Former Employee), Cottonwood, AZAugust 27, 2013
Pros: learning how to prepare different items i was unaccustomed to.
Cons: the position started out as full time, then my hours were gradually cut to less than part-time
I enjoyed working for this company. I was able to learn a new skill, learned how to prepare some new items I was unfamiliar with. The most difficult part was the language barrier with the clientele, that being they spoke mainly spanish, so I had learn how to communicate in another language.

not a bad job
Cashier (Former Employee), Elizabethton, TNAugust 23, 2013
Pros: paid
Cons: short breaks, bad work hours
It wasn't a bad job it just didn't work with my sophomore year in high school. The job was in a safe environment but the management was difficult and not available most of the time. The people were nice but it was too much for me to handle while in school.

Deli Technician (Current Employee), Paintsville, KYAugust 10, 2013
Pros: co-workers
Cons: no discount for working there.
The job overall is very hectic and hard but without challenge I wouldn't learn anything more. I have so much respect for my co-workers they are always there to help you when you need it. Without people like that in a work place it would be like working with robots. This job has tested many things in me. I have grown so much because of this job. I will – more... miss my co-workers more than anything! – less

A great entry-level job that offers advancement opportunities and works well with scheduling, however does have its negative aspects.
HBC Coordinator (Current Employee), Knoxville, TNJuly 26, 2013
Pros: flexiable scheduling, great entry-level job to obtain work ethic and skills
Cons: not enough growth opportunities, underpaid for loyality to company, hard to advance to full time position
I have worked for Food City for seven and a half years. I started this job when I was in high school and because of their job security I chose to stay with the company and advance while I was furthering my education. However, they do not have me as a full-time employee due to the fact that I was in school. Recently graduated from college they know I – more... am seeking the start of a career elsewhere so they have not made me full time. My pay is good, but not compared to what it should be for the time period I have been with the company. I advanced from a cashier, to day stock position, to my current position of HBC coordinator. This job has allowed me to have exceptional customer service and communication skills as well as building great leadership qualities. I am able to have job knowledge in various positions to help as needed. This was a great job for me to obtain great job skills, but I am ready to find a company with better advancement and growth opportunities. – less
