Low expectations
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Bleeker StreetNovember 13, 2016
This job seemed pretty decent at first. I was hired on the spot. However, I should have known I wouldn't be there very long considering the staff on the first day pretty much gave me the scoop on the situation. The management here is in dyer need of improvement. They expect you to constantly be busy despite the fact that its painfully slow until the afternoon. There isn't much to do considering there's a person or manager for just about everything. The staff all seen lethargic and pretty much tired of being there. I think this job is great for high school kids. Not so much for adults with bills. Probably Top 5 worst jobs. Something is always in need of repair and they freak out if there are more than 2 people on line. They don't believe in having people wait although they don't have the proper technology to accomedate for the fast pace environment they try to create.

Preaparation (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYOctober 28, 2016
Hay buenos compañeros de trabajos con supervisores muy flexibles pero ahí un nivel de competitividad negativa y eso no los deja avanzar mucho, les aconsejaría que sean más discretos en cuanto a la vida de cada empleado y que sean realistas !
Pros
Te ayudan con los estudios
Cons
Dan muy pocas horas

Great for foodies
Cheesemonger (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 2, 2015
While the company does not necessarily have a lot of room for advancement, it does provide amazing opportunities to learn about food. The employees all love food (a given, of course) and come from many walks of life, ranging from actors to academics.
