Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – August 4, 2012
A typical evening shift included bagging groceries, cleaning the bathrooms multiple times, closing the seating area of the store and refilling the bags at check stands. The biggest issue with this job was the schedule not being done until a few days before you were next scheduled to work.
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – November 14, 2013
Pros: excellent variety of lunch options, great benefits
Cons: inconsistency in the hours, frequency of new managers
A typical day at Q.F.C. started with me going in and mapping out what I was going to do based on what the store was low on. Then I would go to the back room and bring stock out to the floor. I would also assist customers and bag groceries on an as-needed basis. I learned a lot about customer service. Q.F.C. has always been about going the extra mile – more... for customers. They train on this, they applaud your efforts for doing so as well. Management was fair for the most part. One of the biggest challenges with them is that with there being three different store managers in just as many years, it made it challenging to get promoted. My co-workers were awesome people, I'm in touch with some of them today. The hardest part of the job would have been the variety of different hours I had to work. It wasn't always consistent. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the accolades I earned. Q.F.C. has its own company news letter called "View on the Q". They would pick what they felt was the best customer comment card and publish it. I was featured in it twice for outstanding service. – less

I made many long term friends working at Quality Food Centers in Redmond. I loved the management and everyone came together as a team. I have bounced around the store and was able to learn many skills from the various tasks I was able to do.
District Loss Prevention Specialist (Former Employee), Northwest, WA – July 5, 2013
QFC is a great company to start for and continue to develop with. There is tons of opportunity to advance when in the right position. It can get a little hectic with work/life balance, but that was specifically for my job. I recommend this company to all.
Wine steward / liquor manager (Former Employee), Seattle, wa – March 30, 2013
Pros: love the customers and educating them about worldwide wines
Cons: this company has no regard for the well-being of their employees
This started as a fun job due to my many years as a wine industry professional. As Kroger centralized it policies and requirements to mirror it's "work them till they're so burned out they leave" nationwide philosophy, it ultimately became the the worst drudgery due to spending 90% of my time lifting boxes and stocking shelves. I was told that I was – more... hired to sell wine and educate customers about wine. Now, I believe that they would prefer all wine professionals leave so they can replace our one journeyman salary with a couple of part-time minimum-wage employees that will function as stock clerks. – less
Curtuosy Clerk (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – February 28, 2013
Bagging groceries was a fun experience along with returning the shopping carts. My co-workers were great people to work with. I may not have been there long, however I did learn a lot about how the grocery business works.

opening shifts closing shifts working in high volume and low volume a fun friendly team playing environment. Management was great diversity and always willing to help. hardest part of the job was inventory monthly.
Every one at QFC knew each other and could enjoy each others company. This was my first job and I have to thank my store and floor manager for giving me great customer service skills. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing how happy people could be when you aided them in their needs. The hardest part of this job was reaching products on the – more... top shelves in the store. – less
