I Love Serving My Customers
Lead Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Quincy, FLJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: meeting new people, great management
Cons: no breaks, lazy workers, flooring
When I get to work, I clock in and ready to move. I fill out a manager's walk around the store. I am checking inventory and associates performance such as completing all tasks. I count the money from the previous day and make deposit. Thirty minutes before opening the store, I place the breakfast grill items on the grill and making coffee. I turn on the outside lights and open the store. I greet every customer coming in and/or going out. During and after completing paperwork, I'm constantly clean, stocking, and serving my customers.

I love my team. I have a great manager who coaches me and have the drive I have to be organized, moving at a fast pace, and get the job done. I enjoy my associates and their work ethics.

The hardest part of my job is standing for hours. The building is old so the flooring is horrible. Also another con are some associates who don't have that drive to work hard.

For the most part, I love serving people.

Interesting People
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee), Chatsworth, GAJanuary 19, 2015
The hardest part of this job was informing those that were intoxicated that I could not and would not sell them any additional alcohol, or that I would not sell after hours. The most memorable incident of this nature was on a Saturday night. I had been busy and unable to get off the register long enough to lock the beer coolers when a gentleman came to the counter with a twelve pack about five minutes after time. He set the twelve pack on the counter with some other items; I removed the beer and rang up the other items. He asked why he couldn't have his beer, I explained to him that it was after selling hours and that I could get into serious trouble, and possibly even go to jail if I sold it to him. He replied "I'll bail you out and support you and your family if you'll just sell me the beer" as the police walked in. To this day, that guest and I laugh about that Saturday night that we both could have gone to jail over a twelve pack.

GREAT JOB
Lead Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Rossville, GAJanuary 10, 2015
I learned a lot about computer (registers) systems.
I learned what to watch for if someone is going to rob or steal you.
The hardest part of the job is that sometimes I was left by myself because they didn't believe we would be busy enough for more than one person and I always ended up getting slammed.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with the community.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCJanuary 7, 2015
Cons: salary.
A typical day at work is stocking the cooler, tobacco products, and completing the required duties list that must be complete by all 3 shifts. Management was the best, she was really flexible with my schedule and working around my schedule. Hardest part of the job is dealing with customers who continuously cause problems, by not carrying their and giving a hard time when being carded. It's my job!

The Pantry
associate (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLDecember 23, 2014
I loved my customers. I couldn't asked for sweeter customers. I learned how to push myself past my limit and get everything accomplished. I learned how to remain calm in tough situations. The hardest part for me working at the pantry is the fact that the management doesn't communicate with people. you never know what is going on with your work life.

Store Manager (Former Employee), Volusia county area, FLDecember 18, 2014
Pros: free fountain and coffee in own cup
Cons: insurance is horrible and expensive
Although the job can seem chaotic, as long as you do as company policy states there will be no problems. Under the right manager, you can advance and become a member of management team. I do miss working for the company.

Part time/Overnight Clerk (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLDecember 15, 2014
A job to pass the time and a paycheck. You can advance but you are not going to be home a lot. Working major hours, management is not good at all. All depends on what store you are at. the most enjoyable part of the job is the friendly people you meet.

Cashier (Former Employee), Canton, MSDecember 11, 2014
Pros: working with the public
When working at Kangaroo I have learned how to work openly with the public and how to operate a store by myself. Working with co-workers was one of the exciting parts of the jobs. Being able to maintain a positive relationship with co-workers, managers, and the public was the easy part of the job, as well as the most enjoyable.
