Customer Sales Representative, Cheese Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 23, 2017
A typical day at work for me includes beng moved from job to job because there are call offs or scheduling issues. Which in turn makes it hard for me to do the job I get paid for. I'm only part time because I can't get in to train for full time. My hours are always getting cut and I can't live off of what I make because of it. The best part about working there though are my coworkers.
short breaks, hard to advance, hours cut all the time
Cashier (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 20, 2017
Straight forward; you clock in, work, get a break, and then leave. The only problems that arise are when upper management gets over-barring or is not helpful during influx of customers. But overall a good experience.
Barista (Current Employee) – Orland Park, IL – February 19, 2017
I take care of customers needs, making sure that they are satisfied and that they have a desire to visit again. There is nothing special about working here, and it is difficult to move up in the company. It is fun to work with the people around me, and I hope that I am able to encourage them and help them have a better day.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 19, 2017
Workers are rude , most times you have to work alone . Management never helps you until you get the union involved. There's a lot of clicjs inside of the work area . Every Little thing you do you'll get put on blast about it.
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) – Park Ridge, IL – February 18, 2017
This was my first job in 2014 and I was a bagger and would help out in various departments when needed. The best thing about this job was that it helped me become more comfortable speaking and conversing with people. This job helped me get used to customer service and conversing with customers.
The uniform was nice, helped me understand working with customers and other employees
At the end of my time there I had to leave because my hours were starting to interfere with school
Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) – Buffalo Grove, IL – February 16, 2017
Staff can be super nice and for the most part the costumers that come in have a great and friendly attitude. The hardest thing about the job is standing on your feet for too long and the occasional snotty customer but other than that I have not had any issues at my time working at marianos.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 12, 2017
It was very active, I learned how to bag correctly & gather karts in an appropriate speed. Management was okay. The workplace culture was helpful to others in need. Hardest part was doing things in an efficient manner. Most enjoyable part was seeing other people happy for helping them.
SWEEET SHOP ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 10, 2017
For the Sweet Shop you would have to make all different types of popcorn, caramel apples, fudge, chocolate, and chocolate strawberries. You get to interact with customers on a daily basis and make special orders. It is always fun interacting with the customers. The hardest part of the job would probably be cleaning. Overall its a great environment.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Naperville, IL – February 6, 2017
A typical day at work as a cashier was providing quality service for our customers, going above and beyond to put them first. Closing shifts included cleaning duties and other tasks as assigned from shift leads. Management provided plenty of opportunities for workers of any age to advance in their positions.
Liquor Team Member (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 3, 2017
because the owner was the chef, and this was his only eatery. You could tell the care and passion he had for his food and staff. Enjoy working here as a side gig! Looking to learn more about liquor and the industry. Have already learned so much from his sommelier.
free lunch! learned a lot about liquor from bar tenders and sommelier
REPLINISHMENT TEAM LEAD (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 3, 2017
As per work, the company is a good team to work with. However HR is not willing to help out anyone, to have hours looked at, audited, time sheets adjusted you have to make several meetings which pushes your time in.
I worked overnights
The morning-side did not effectively communicate to the night crew!
Baker (Former Employee) – Harwood Heights, IL – January 31, 2017
Uninteresting and stressful. I did not learn much as I have had a previous baking job. Management only cared about numbers, profits, profits, profits. I worked at my own leisure, the job allowed me to work at my own pace.
Demonstration Person (Current Employee) – Westmont, IL – January 30, 2017
We are busy all day, everyday. Putting up displays , doing food and beverage demonstrations. I enjoy the customers, getting to talk with them. I have learned that you can not be in more than one place at a time. I said before that we are very busy. If I could clone myself I could get more work done.
Bakery Clerk (Current Employee) – Palatine, IL – January 23, 2017
Starting pay is good for a high school student. After that it's horrible, hard to get a raise or move up. Management is the worst, don't appreciate their employees and expect them to do tasks that are out of their job description.
