Typical low-skill, entry-level work.
Most positions are low-skill, entry-level positions, and thus pay poorly. Raises are negligible and unannounced, usually $0.10 every six months. Level of work or customer service varies by department. As far as the bakery department, there is pressure to complete a set list of tasks in limited time; the amount of work can be unpredictable and change as customers place orders. Young adults (e.g., college-age) hold most of the positions and a few do not take work seriously. Employee turnover is high, particularly in parcel and cashiering. One positive is that it is fairly easy to dictate your work schedule; managers are generally willing to do what they can to accommodate your requests for hours or days off.
