Cashier (Current Employee), Frederick, MD – February 27, 2014
Pros: health insurance for part-time, meal tickets when you come in on your day off or even earlier then scheduled.
Cons: you can be on your feet from 4 hours to 11 hours
A lot of people think it's easy being a cashier but it's hard work. A typical day is dealing with people who complain about how high groceries are, why there's only 1 register open after 10pm etc. I have learned that it doesn't matter who you are all types of people need help in some ways or another. I really like the people I work with. They treat – more... you like your family. The hardest part is not being able to help customer's who really are having a hard time money wise. I really enjoy my customers. If you are down and they see it they will make sure by the time they leave your laughing. You get so close to some of them you feel as if they are your family. – less
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), New Martinsville, WV – February 25, 2014
Pros: i met a few friends
It was a job that I would work multiple positions. The management team was hard to work for and not very respectful. I just had a routine to get by with my coworkers. I wasn't challenged at work I just had follow the routine. There were only a few coworkers that did start drama.
Customer Service Representative, Cashier (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – February 24, 2014
Pros: team member discounts on merchandise, union, and the benefits
Cons: not getting answers about benefits, mismanagement, and lack of professionalism
Making sure the customers are taking care of thats the most important aspect of the job. I've learned so much in 2 yrs how to multi task is probably the biggest one. Also to cash western union. Management isn't one of the strong points because its not about what they want its about what the company wants and its about profits. Most of my co-workers – more... are great but since we've had mismanagement it bring the morale down. Hardest part of my job is dealing with rude customers and keeping everything in order when there is a lot going on. The most enjoyable is seeing the difference I made in someone day. – less
productive, fun to work there, customers are great
Front End Coordinator (Former Employee), Dublin, OH – February 20, 2014
Busy grocery store in Ohio. Never slow. Management always relied on the front end coordinators to run their front end. We helped with providing products and services that meet the requirements of internal and external customers at all times. With me being a Front End Coordinator, I was to give direction and work assignments to the Front End team members – more... to ensure efficient operation of the business. I enjoyed the training part of my job. I trained most of the newcomers. I also trained the customer service desk clerks. That I would have to say was the most enjoyable part of my job. The hardest part of the job I would have to say would be making sure that the minors got their breaks on time. If they did not then we would get a minor violation, If we got a minor violation, that means a lot of money for the company! OUCH! – less
Cashier (Current Employee), Ravenna, OH – February 18, 2014
Pros: discounts, friendly, caring
A typical day of work as a cashier would start with a brief discussion with my manager about the work I was expected to do for the day. Sometimes this would consist of the manager telling me what register I was working at and nothing more. Other times I would learn about another department that I was going to help for part of the day, or a project at – more... the front that I was going to be in charge of. The days that I spent in other departments were usually right after large shipments, where my manager would need help getting as much merchandise to the sales floor as possible. The projects at the front were typically displays that I would be organizing or new promotional items that I would be putting up in place of old ones.
I almost always closed the store, which meant I was the last cashier there at the end of the day. Apart from checking out people at the register, this meant that I was in charge of cleaning the store at the end of the day and making sure everything was in place for the opening cashier the next morning. My day would end with my manager counting my drawer and me tidying up all of the displays in the front area to make sure they looked good for the morning. If I had spare time, I would help other people put up returns in their departments so we could all leave the store more quickly – less

Pros: paid breaks
Cons: difficult management
A typical day at work consisted of first and foremost helping customers with the things they inquired about or needed. Then basic maintenance of the deli, cleaning, putting away orders, and making orders. I have learned many things working here.

I got along with my coworkers and enjoyed working with them, we were able to work and have some fun while doing what needed to be done. The hardest part of my job was dealing with my Manager, she tended to be very malicious and tried to start much drama between workers – less
