CASHIER (Former Employee) – Childersburg, AL – April 26, 2016
There really wasn't any hard part of the job. I loved greeting the customers and I got along with all my co-workers. I performed tasks such as stocking, fronting products on shelves, operating cashier, gathering shopping carts, and cleaning stations.

A typical work day at piggly wiggly is hard, from dealing with the different attitudes of customers, co-workers and management as well. To work at piggly wiggly you must be able to control your temper.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Burgaw, NC – March 2, 2016
My day at work has something different going on either funny or shocking. I've learned how to deal with multiple personalities and attitudes. I've even grown myself things that people say or do no longer bother me. Management has changed for the better I must say since I started in 2013 as well as co-workers even trained a few myself love them all and would want them to change a thing about themselves. The hardest part of my job is thinking about the day I put in my two week notice to move on in life and start my career. I love all my mangers although I have two favorites that keep my smiling and laughing all shift long.
Appreciation on the holidays, like mothers day
Cashiers have to pay for fountain drinks, where as the other departments don't.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 2, 2016
Working the cash register at piggly wiggly is an interesting experience. During most of your day there won't be much real cashier work being done, which is to be expected given that most people either work or go to school during the day. During these lulls your only responsibilities are to keep your area organized and help other cashiers with bagging. Without fail each shift has about an hour or two where business picks up and time flies by. The only unfortunate aspect is the pay isn't reasonable for anyone who isn't a student.
In-store discounts, friendly work environment, opportunities for overtime.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, SC – February 29, 2016
Piggly Wiggly did a very good job at making their stores feel like a ma & pop establishment and take good care of their customers. Employees were encouraged to start up conversations and be friendly with not only customers but other workers, creating an overall nice atmosphere.
A typical day at Piggly Wiggly was cold, wet, and bloody. I learned a lot about cutting meat an dealing with meat items an the handling an being able to tell how fresh meat is by the look an smell of the meat. I did not care for the management but it did not slow my work environment down at all. I loved working with my co-workers. They were always fun an tried to keep you smiling. My co-workers were also very good on helping me questions or any trouble I might of had. The hardest part of the job was the cold an dealing with all the blood. The most enjoyable part of the job was establishing a new trade an dealing with the community I was working in, because I lived right down the road from Piggly Wiggly.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ayden, NC – February 23, 2016
Piggly Wiggly was a good job. I was a cashier, I also assisted customers with finding items on their grocery list they couldn't find. I worked in a positive environment around helping managers and co workers.
a typical day at work begins with counting in and starting your register, then ringing up customers and being courteous and efficient. Management is mostly okay, sometimes hard to get along with. The hardest part of the job is a toss up between the unpredictable hours and the customers who are difficult to deal with. The most enjoyable part of the job is connecting with people.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, NC – February 11, 2016
There are a lot of high school students working there. A lot of unnecessary conflict. There is poor management, managers are not on the same page. The owner has a lot of family members working for him.
learning about customer service
short breaks, not up to date on medical, poor management
Stocker (Former Employee) – Laurel, MS – February 9, 2016
I always enjoyed coming into work and being able to joke around with my co-workers while we got our jobs done. It was a good location and every time I went into work I knew that I would have a blast and I knew I would get my job done because I did the same thing everyday
A highly rewarding job but damaged by negative individuals.
Bakery Associate (Former Employee) – Randolph, WI – February 1, 2016
A typical day at work was usually fun, challenging, creative, and something I looked forward to. I learned a great deal from my bakery manager on how to decorate cakes and expand my creativity. My bakery manager was wonderful to work with, however the deli manager was awful. Most of the coworkers were wonderful people. The hardest part of the job was working with an individual that was highly unprofessional and verbally abusive. The most enjoyable part of the job was my bakery manager, several other wonderful people, and a job that allowed me to express my creativity.
