productive and can be rewarding
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Columbia, MOMarch 28, 2015
Pros: friendly enviroment, great customers, awesome co-workers
Cons: not enough hours, stressful sometimes, no benefits
I can say that I love the customers, that is what makes my job rewarding. It's hard work, constantly moving, getting items for your customer or running the register. It can get extremely busy at certain – more... times of the day. during down time, I usually stock the coolers to make sure when my customers come through that door, their need will be met. I have lots of fun on this job because of the customers, they make my day and serving people is what I love doing. making them happy. My customers are awesome and my co-workers are the best and at Midwest, I can interact with the customers and even though there aren't a lot of hours, the fun I have working with my co-workers and the customers makes it worth the while. – less

Good Workplace to attain experience
Store Manager/Sales Manager (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: decent training
Cons: no advancement, horrible health benefits, bad bonus programs
Good place to get your management training in. Expect a little too much from their managers for what they pay. There's a lot of nepotism that goes on at the corporate level, with family hiring family etc. – more... Horrible bonus package that doesn't compensate by merit too much. Expect managers to work as many hours as it takes to keep up their "Corporate" Image. All in all a good place for young managers to get their training. – less

I loved working here for many reasons
Cashier/Sales Associate/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: free drinks
Cons: watch out for crooked managers
Everyday was something new. No day was ever the same. I learned almost everything I know from Midwest. I did go through a lot of managers so I have to say it was the General Managers that taught me all that I know. My co-workers were awesome!! The hardest part of that job was the cooler. I enjoyed everything else about it.

Stressful environment
assistant manager (Former Employee), Wright City, MOApril 3, 2014
Pros: got to know customers
Cons: short breaks, no lunch, bad management
The company was not a very good company to work for. They did not take what the employees had to say seriously. I would not recommend this place to anyone for a job. The manager did not help the employees to move forward in the organization.

Horrible company to work for
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Belleville, ILJune 25, 2013
While management in the store was good, upper management was absolutely horrible. They never listened to any of their underlings and allowed regular customers to come in daily and mentally, verbally, and – more... even physically abuse their sales associates. I learned how to take massive amounts of abuse while working there, and other than that, not much else. I was an assistant manager and they promoted other assistant managers that had been with the company for less time above me to managers even though I had given my entire self to the company. I never felt appreciated once even. – less

My duties were working the cash register and stocking products. I mainly worked overnight. My stay was seasonal. I never really looked to make this a permeant job. It was a family environment. Co workers got along very well.
