Meat Clerk, Meat Department (Former Employee), Inwood, NY – August 16, 2014
a typical day at work was checking the dates of items in the case and taking anything out of dat out the case and making down things that were soon to go out of date. i learned a lot about how the department was rain and different meats and how they are to be cut and wrapped. my co workers were great only people that weren't were the department manager – more... was always being changed and sometimes a little unfair about the amount and how heavy some products were for me to push or lift. most enjoyable part of the job was my co workers and just doing the job well and having returning customers that knew you would do there order right and be happy that you assisted them. – less
I enjoyed the job and the fast pace of the work. I felt like the night shift had great teamwork and helped each other. When I was moved to second shift I was never trained and didnt feel like I had anyone I could go to with questions.
Generally a good place to work but needs better Human Resources
Cash and/or Customer Service Department Head (Current Employee), Swampscott, MA – May 25, 2014
A typical day at work is fast paced and the business fluctuates from day to day. I've learned how to make effective decisions quickly and keep my patience in a very demanding and fast paced work environment. Management is happy to help assist with the upkeep of the department, however it seems that attitudes are thrown around freely. There can be, at – more... times, a lack of professionalism with management. – less
I enjoy my customers and my co-workers. However, the management team was not as involved as we wished. I have learned a lot about pleasing customers and being a team player to get our jobs done quickly and efficiently. The hardest part of my job was being put in the position to do jobs I was not trained for but I was still able to get the job done with – more... no recognition. The most enjoyable part of the job was my everyday customers, co-workers who became good friends. Self confidence to get any task done. – less
I do love my co workers they are the only thing that keep me going at times
Part Time- Meat Dept. (Clerk) (Current Employee), Wanaque, NJ – May 20, 2014
Pros: they pay for healthcare
Cons: not enough associates, pay scale very low.
The most enjoyable part of my job are my co workers. I have learned you cant do everything by yourself which is the hardest part of the job. Due to lack of hiring we do not have enough associates nor do we have enough time in the day to do what must be done we simply try our very best to do the best we can. Our management has come and gone in the 3 – more... yrs. I've been there we have had 4 assistant managers. I do my job to the best of my ability sometimes I have a tendency to go above and beyond. But after so many years of no recognition not even "hey great job today", it does get me down at times. That's when I look to a co worker talk it out and move on. – less

Its a normal day at work by pre-packing all the food around the table and learning how to bake, pan. All the workers are great and we get along well. There is nothing that is hard at this job. The most enjoyable that is people.
