I worked during the summer, and as a first job it wasn't so bad. I worked about 40 hours a week and so spent approx. 8-9 hours standing up cutting fruit on my assigned days. Eventually, it became sort of relaxing, like a rhythm because I was cutting the same fruit every work day and putting it out on display for the customers. I really enjoyed working there because people were nice to me and showed me the ropes. Of course, there were some trying days but all in all, it was a great experience. The main problem I had was with the pineapple and the trash. I had to cut a lot of pineapple because it was the summertime and everyone wanted watermelon, pineapples, or strawberries. My skin burned because of the pineapple juice. The greatest part was the 30 minute lunch break. I usually brought a few snacks from home but I always bought lunch in store. I really enjoyed being able to eat lunchables one day and eating a hot dog or chicken tenders the next (the chicken tenders are the BEST there). It was a great experience for me and I would love to do it again.
Employee discount on groceries, nice atmosphere
stressful when deliveries don't come in or when corporate is there
