Every day at work I would cash checks, process any bill payment the customer needed to do and process any western union transactions. I enjoyed the people I worked with there. Just wasn't enough hours for me.

The Deli Counter is Cool
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Copiague, NYMay 22, 2015
Pros: Easy Work
Cons: Extremely Lazy Co-workers and Management
The managers at this place are the laziest bunch of people on the planet. They are afraid of disciplining people who don't do there jobs so nothing gets done. Luckily the people I worked with behind the deli counter were a nice group. Though some of them are lazy too.

Fun work environment, small town friendliness
Cashier (Current Employee), Granite Falls, WAMay 21, 2015
Pros: Great place to work is you just want to make a little extra and work part time.
Cons: low pay, no advancement opportunity, inconsistent schedules, no consideration for employees life/work balance.
IGA stores are independently owned and part of a franchise with Standler Foods. Independent means non-union which can be both good and bad. Each owner/operator can decide whether to advance people or not, give them raises and decide on amount of hours they give people on the schedule with no baring to seniority. They can hire in managers without consideration to allowing advancement opportunities for their current workers. These are not ideal circumstances for individuals who would like better pay, better scheduling and room for advancement. Life/work balance is non-existent and is an unfortunate byproduct that decreases employee moral..

Professional and friendly place to work
Cashier (Former Employee), Clinton, ILApril 22, 2015
Pros: Family like atmosphere, positive for customers and employees
Cons: none
A typical day would be stocking shelves, assisting customers, Trying to get the product out for them and rang up for them as quickly and efficiently as possible.
I learned the value of being reliable and part of an outstanding team.
The management was great and easily someone you could go to if you had a problem with confidence they would handle it.
Co-workers were professional and courteous. I knew I could count on them.
The hardest part of the job was leaving. I honestly still miss this place. It was like a family.
The most enjoyable part was working so cohesively with everyone to deliver the best service to the customers.

Cashier, Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHFebruary 22, 2015
Pros: free groceries
Cons: i was part-time so health insurance nor bonous pay
I was a cashier and also worked at the customer service desk. This position was part-time but paid well. The owners were very friendly and also would step in to help in time of need. The hardest part of the job was dealing with angry or drunk customers but we were well trained for that. I enjoyed meeting different people from all walks of life.

Cons: not enough hours, pay wasn't good
Typical day at work included helping customers, cleaning, handling money, completing task within a timely manner, using computer technology, and working with the public.

Co-workers were all good as well. They are all very helpful and friendly. The hardest part of the job was leaning all the codes for the fruits and veggies. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with the community.

Manager (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKDecember 22, 2014
Pros: advancement opporunities
Cons: lack of stability
Although great places to work and plenty room for advancement for someone that puts forth all of the extra effort such as myself, it was difficult as we were financially backed by Fleming Foods. Each time Fleming made a decision to close a location, it resulted in my unemployment.
