Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – December 12, 2017
A typical day at work is either slow or busy business. I learned customer service, communication skills, computer knowledge and marketing sales. My management was equal and fair towards their fellow employees. The work culture is friendly, safe and clean. The hardest part of the job is running around like a chickens head cut off supervising/maintaining the store and dealing with unsatisfied customers that complained about a situation. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the sun is out and people have a positive attitude plus game days and cheerful holiday spirits too.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – December 12, 2017
The people working there are amazing, not only because of their job but they are genuinely fun and cooperative. Besides that its a regular stressful retail work with lots of surprises and often not enough help available.
Deli Clerk/Cook (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 12, 2017
I worked in the Deli and they go by seniority there so I was below so I closed the deli at the beginning, make sandwiches we had a sandwich bar, fried hot food, baked chicken, help customers, slice cold cuts and cheese for customers liking also clean, wash dishes, sweep, mop change fryer oil when needed. make sure the deli displays were updated and full, take orders, make orders. all the women I worked with were all wonderful because I knew nothing about deli or even a store I always done medical field but I wanted to learn something different and was enjoyable. The downer is you can get relocated to another store without giving you much notice, next day your somewhere else. And that's why I left was transfered 4 times
Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Conifer, CO – December 11, 2017
Micromanagement is just a part of another day at work. If you find good co-workers and can get along with them you'll be fine, but most are just crazy, require a boatload of patience to deal with, and aren't professional.
A simple job if you really only need income of any amount
Fuel Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) – Troutdale, OR – December 11, 2017
The only decent manager was the immediate manager at the fuel station. The store managers and supervisors are all manipulative and will say what you like to hear in order to get results with no intention of keeping their end of any bargain. In the year I worked there after the made a change to union, they had union representatives "lie" in order to make the changes they saw necessary, and did not offer promised compensation and even lied about making such promises.
you work your butt of but will be used for probation period depending on ethnic.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – December 11, 2017

Starbucks Barista (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – December 11, 2017
Don't work here, there isn't a lot of benefits, they are not flexible, if they don't like you they just will stop giving you hours until you are forced to leave so that they don't have to pay you unemployment.
Deli Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Lakeside, AZ – December 10, 2017
A typical day at Safeway was full of high paced productivity. Management was very forthcoming and honest. They are also very kind and understanding people. The best thing I learned was to time management and developed excellent work ethics.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Fort Mohave, AZ – December 8, 2017
Even though I was part-time and a courtesy clerk, I had been treated poorly by management. Money was stolen from my jacket in my locker and when I made an incident report, my manager didn't believe me and shrugged it off. I was usually pushed around by cashiers. I either would get one 15 minute break that is always late no matter how many hours I work that day or I wouldn't get a break at all because everyone's breaks somehow get "delayed and late" but you see the other managers sitting outside smoking a cigarette every 30 minutes. The only good thing I liked about this job is I managed to become friends with the nicer cashier's and courtesy clerks because they can relate on how I feel, the job pays, most customers are very nice, and my hard work gets recognized by the customers.
Job pays, can relate to other employees
Short or no breaks, horrible management, unorganized
Its a great place to work at times depending on who is management
Overnight Stocker (Current Employee) – Stockton, CA – December 8, 2017
The work is not hard but some come workers can be lazy which effects the overall team goals. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude customers and teft from some customers. There is favoritism at the job and it can get to you at times but you just have to keep working hard and hope that gets you far.
