Advancement Opportunities
Supervisor/Recruiter/Bookkeeper (Current Employee), Bowie, MDApril 15, 2014
Pros: fair, understanding
Opportunities exist to advance to management, however, it will be expected of you to work 10 hour days, which would be a problem for me because I have three small children.

SafeWay
Grocery Store Cashier (Former Employee), Rockville, MDApril 15, 2014
Pros: 10% discount on store products, better coupons with j4u, free lunches.
Cons: short breaks, sometimes short handed, poor management.
My typical day at work was working on the cash register the whole work day. When it was slow I did other taks around my register but it was a very busy store. I learned how to be more social and have better communication with customers and co-workers alike. The management was mostly fine for the six years plus I was there, there was good times and bad – more... but mostly good. I had wonderful co-workers to work with always full of energy and happy, friendly to work with a well. The hardest part of the job I would have to say would be to stay calm in cases like before a major snow storm or other wheather is about to hit or dealing with a very rude and un-friendly customer. The most enjoyable part of the job was to have most customers but all the co-workers be always nice and very fun to work with so that made me feel happy at work. – less

I enjoy my job very much. A typical day for me includes processing flowers and helping customers with any problems they have in the store, and assisting them with their flower needs. My Favorite part of my job is being creative and talking to my regular customers.

Pros: near residence
Cons: low pay
Night stock, clean up, receiving inbound and outbound duties applied. Assisting receiving clerk most enjoyable part of day. No contact with customers worst part of job. I am a people person, this position is during the hours of 1 am to 8 am, and requires no contact with any customer base.

Courtesy Clerk - Berkely CA (Former Employee), berkely caApril 10, 2014
Pros: hours
Cons: complants
You go in, wear your appron and start to head over to self check out for your duties for the day. I've learned that you will have to stay fast pacing through out the time you're there. Management wern't bad, they were on their duty. Co-workers did their job to the best of their ability. Hardest part of the job was receiving complants. Most enjoyable – more... part was when funny things accured. – less

Cashier
CASHIER (Former Employee), Washington, DcApril 10, 2014
Pros: you can set hour's that you are able to do.
Cons: short break's and no real lunch breaks.
Being a cashier is not an easy job, because people's can be hard to deal with at times. That is why you have to be people friendly.
Some times they have had a hard day or the are just plain mean, either way you have to smile and stay focus.
