Flexibility in scheduling made it possible for me to raise my kids without daycare.
Office Manager (Current Employee), Tucson, AZJuly 14, 2014
Pros: we got safety prizes every quarter that we had no accidents.
Cons: sometimes in the slow season it's hard to get enough hours.
Safeway encourages it's employees to advance in the company. A typical day at Safeway was always interesting and fun for me because I got to work with lovely people and customers. I learned a lot about being a self starter and handling problems on my own. The management team always encouraged me to resolve things on my own, so they trusted me. The hardest – more... part of my job was when I felt like I couldn't resolve someone's issue, but that happened very infrequently. I guess the most enjoyable part of my job was the interaction that I had with my regular customers. I love them! – less

Ok place to work
Fuel Station Attendant (Former Employee), Lander, WYJuly 14, 2014
Ill just start off by saying that the pay there sucked, it was bearly enough to get by, but not much more after that. Store management was great, but district management was a nightmare.

Floral Manager (Former Employee), Scotts Vally CAJuly 10, 2014
Pros: flexible schecuel
Cons: long hours
I enjoyed my job of helping people meet their needs in customer service. I helped them pick out what they needed and did what ever it took to please the customer. My typical day consisted of putting product out, keeping all areas clean and neat, ordering product, doing inventory monthly. The hardest part of my job was making sure that I ordered just – more... enough product and not too much. I worked very well with my coi-workers.

Continuously Growing Environment
STARBUCKS DEPARTMENT MANAGER (Former Employee), Flagstaff, AZJuly 10, 2014
Pros: generous compentsation, growth potential into many different areas
Cons: unreliable crew members who don't show up for shifts, fickle political environment of the store.
I learned how to successfully manage a crew, which in this type of environment can be much like juggeling balls in the air. Some of my daily tasks involved -placing weekly orders, scheduling employees, and coaching and mentoring Legendary Service. This included but was not limited to: custom crafting Starbucks beverages, sales, merchandising, customer – more... relations, customer service, health and sanitation requirements, inventory control, report writing, report generation, field service outreach, staff meetings, seasonal display changes, and sales conference calls. The coworkers were great. The hardest part of the job were the rushes of customers. Some of them had very large orders, and this would hold the line up for some time, and we were expected to server customers within a 3 minute window of time once they got in line. I loved every part of this job! It challenged me to grow and provided me with the skills I needed to advance further. – less
