ok place to work, the better employee you are the more hours you get even if that means taking someone elses. pretty much do your own thing when you're not a grocery clerk.

Assistant Customer Service Manager (Current Employee), Brownstown, MichiganApril 8, 2015
Pros: Healthcare, sampling new products
Cons: No employee appreciation, pay
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting your hands dirty with your associates and showing them that just because you're a supervisor doesn't mean that their job is beneath yours. Overall they'll respect you more for it in the end.

Not the Best
Cashier (Current Employee), Chillicothe, ILApril 8, 2015
Pros: Occasional free food/drinks
Cons: No water at registers
There are many very good employees, but there are some of them that love to gossip, create employee to employee drama that has dramatically decreased work output, and who do not wish to fully complete their given jobs. There are employees who do not call in and who do not show up. There has been multiple offenses of this, but no action has been taken. Just recently, the weekly schedule had been changed after the time allotted to do so. There had then been employees who had missed their shift and written up. Nearly all of their managers, however, are great and understanding of situations that happen outside of work, such as family and finances. They do not seem to have any problem in taking responsibility for the mistakes that occasionally happen. These individuals make it nice to work there, but having someone put there foot down on the employees who do not pull their weight, shirk their duties, and try to pass off their mistakes on others would greatly increase the likability of this place.

Inconsistent hours but great work environment
Bagger/Cashier (Former Employee), Chillicothe, ILApril 8, 2015
Pros: co-workers, job itself
Cons: inconsitent hours, management
When I was hired here I was only 16, they paid me the "under 18" minimum wage and they required me to pay the Union Fees even though I didn't work enough to be part of the Union and I was too young. I was also told when I was hired that they would work with my band schedule, but that was not the case. I kept missing work due to band being graded. They also would give me almost 30 hours a week to 12 the next week. Very inconsistent. My co-workers were like family to me there and the job itself was not hard. It was a good first job and taught me what it was like to work in the "real world".

Meat Clerk (Former Employee), Richmond, VAApril 7, 2015
Meat clerks work in the meat department of grocery stores and butcher shops and are responsible for weighing, wrapping and pricing meat for customers. Depending on the store and responsibilities, meat clerks might be asked to slice deli meat or cut down larger pieces of meat for display at the meat counter. Meat clerks work directly with customers, and must have great customer service skills.

In addition, meat clerks must keep the counter and work area clean, and maintain all food safety standards. If working with knives or slicers, meat clerks must make sure they are properly trained and observe all safety procedures.

Not a good company
clerk (Current Employee), United StatesApril 6, 2015
Cons: pay, hours, advancement, union
The company has very little room for advancement, pay is low, they don't give many hours and its just about impossible to get full time. They have a union but the working conditions are still bad and the pay is low. You can get 16 hours and still have to work 5 days. They have job security but who cares because you can't get hours and and the pay is low.

Floor Technician / Grocery Stocker (Former Employee), Louisville, KYApril 6, 2015
Pros: Well organized, excellent management, clean store, friendly staff.
Cons: others jobs, call ins, lazy employees, employees complaining., not enough hours.
This was a great opportunuty for me to bridge from one area of being a floor tecnician only to being able help out in the store and move in to other positions, so increased job opportunities and working your way up wiothin the company was a plus for me. It was also a very work friendly environment that promoted a safe and area condusive for work production. We were able to work as a team and help each other to complete our task on time each shift.
