Customer comes first NO matter what
PRICING COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – December 1, 2016
I started at price chopper as a product stocker and was promoted to pricing thanks to my skills in computers.
Any grocery chain thrives on getting the maximum out of the minimum but Price Chopper was particularly distinctive.
All staff were required to help with the registers so customers could buy and leave quickly. This often felt like an excuse to only have 1-3 cashiers on hand at any one point of the day. Management often became upset that your work wasn't finished for the day.
With roughly 20 aisles and no plan layout it became a memory game as to where less obvious products were and finding one at a customers request could take upwards of 15-20 minutes, it was a disorganized mess.
Since every branch (deli, produce, bakery, etc) were on such pressure to sell their product the work environment was very competitive.
Customer interaction, Easily accessed lunch, camaraderie within teams
unreasonable requests, frustrating work environment, competitive team leads.
