Sales Representatives (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – September 12, 2017
Price Rite was the first place I was actual cashier it showed me how to honestly treat people even if they had a nasty attitude with a great and positive attitude to make their day better I would love to do it again
Porter (Former Employee) – Scranton, PA – September 12, 2017
First place I got hired at as a porter and wasn't a bad place it was part time random schedule but for retail wasn't too awful except the first of the months when food stamps came out then it got crazy for a few days but overall not a bad place
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Garfield, NJ – September 5, 2017
I was with Price Rite longer than I should have been. I've started as a cashier and was 'promoted' to more stress and same pay. Overall, this is a good place to start if you're looking for a quick job. In other words, if you can walk and breathe they will take you.
Let's start with the pros: +Flexible scheduling +Benefits +Easy Job +Friendly Coworkers
By far, I had some great times at PR and it was thanks mostly to the people that worked there. (Excluding a few bad apples) And being a college student, the flexibility really gave me time to focus on my studies.
Now the cons: -Condescending Management -Part time only (20-30 hours) -Pushing Carts (regardless of weather) -Pay (minimum wage) -Assistant Manager
One of my issues is the way management would sometimes speak to me. They would speak to me in such a condescending way at times. It could range from a 'kiddo' type of tone to a 'did you really just do that?' tone. In addition to having one of the assistant managers being rude and disrespectful, it lowered my opinion of management. This isn't really a big deal. However, my concern is in the pay and work involved.
As a male cashier, pushing carts in the heat/cold for the bottom-of-the-barrel pay isn't appealing to anyone. And having to rush in to the store to run the cash register on top of that while others will chill+slack off made me lose my drive to work there. I didn't receive enough acknowledgment or pay for my work.
Overall: Not that bad of a job, but this place should only be a place-holder There are better job opportunities out there thanmore... PR. And management isn't as bad as I made it out to be. They are supportive and friendly, with the exception of one of the assistant managers. There were good and bad, but like I said don't over-extend your stay here. You're better off working for Shoprite.less
