what I think
Produce Clerk (Current Employee), Stanwood, WAJuly 22, 2015
A typical day at work started with everything getting situated then getting the product to the customers. I learned a lot and I would like all of that to come out in an interview. Management over the last 10 years changed every 3 years so I went through a lot of managers some great some not. Co-workers for the most part were fun to work with and get along with as well. Hardest part was compartmentalizing how much time one would need to get things done.

Don't take this the wrong way but I would say going home and crashing out. lol

Fun and productive
Starbucks Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Mountlake Terrace, WAJune 23, 2015
Pros: Free Coffee
Cons: Working weekends
A typical day at work consisted of opening the Starbucks Kiosk and prepping the food and beverages for customers. I learned how to multitask and remember detailed information regarding customer orders. I also learned to work quick and efficiently. I also learned to train people with different learning styles. Management was great, and so were my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was cleaning up and significant messes during the morning rush. The most enjoyable part of the job was creating hand crafted beverages for each customer.

Ok to work, not so great to advance
Deli Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Bellevue, WAJune 7, 2015
Compensation and advancement opportunities seem to happen on the whims of management that feels little need to be transparent. Will often ignore that honesty is listed on the core values of the company.

The managers are great, and my fellow employees are awesome; they are very encouraging, and helpful, and just fun to work with.
Floor Clerk (Current Employee), Maple Valley, WAApril 16, 2015
Pros: You get to help and get to know people, and the benefits are good.
Cons: Due to Union stuff, you usually can't work overtime, and you aren't allowed to work after you clock out.
For me, a work day usually is mainly cleaning and helping customers with their groceries, however, occasionally I will help out the other departments. Nothing huge, but if someone is running late in the bakery, I help them finish up, and every now and then I'll help out the Floral Department with watering plants, or moving things. But yes, usually my day is just cleaning the bathrooms, taking out the trash, sweeping, cleaning up spilled / broken products, bagging groceries, and helping customers.

An excellent first post high school job
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee), Seattle, WANovember 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 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.

District Loss Prevention Specialist (Former Employee), Northwest, WAJuly 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.

Really nice co-workers, great customers
Wine steward / liquor manager (Former Employee), Seattle, waMarch 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 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.

Curtuosy Clerk (Former Employee), Seattle, WAFebruary 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.

Difficult scheduling but fun people
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 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.
