A very busy never boring work place
Associate in Meat department (Current Employee), Corinth, MSJuly 30, 2014
if your not cutting meat your wrapping and labeling, or your filling the bunker with chickens, filling the case up with beef or pork products, working frozen, traying up frozen product to be weighed, weighing up hams, and more, then at the end of the day the closer takes apart saws soaks dishes cutting table and tenderizer, use a water hose to clean – more... the floor and continue t assist guest and put out needed product – less

Great Insurance benefits
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Conyers, GAJuly 30, 2014
Pros: great insurance benefits, advancement opportunities
Cons: scheduling, occasional lack of communication
Everyday is a challenge.. It affords you the opportunity to meet and engage with customers. It teaches you diversity and patience. When you work in a high volume company you have to work with a conglomerate of personalities I truly enjoy helping the Associates with their work related or personal issues. Great companies can sometimes have misplaced employees.

Customer service is essential to success
Cashier/ Customer Service (Current Employee), Flowery Branch, GAJuly 29, 2014
Pros: helping people
Cons: short breaks/long hours, schedule is not set, only part time
There will typically be more workers than customers early in the morning which can make the days seem slow and long. I learned that really the only thing customers look for is to be attentive and caring about them. Managers can be tough and coworkers can be less hard-working, but it is worth it is you are a people person and love taking care of people. – more... The hardest part of the job is having someone who is rude and thankless as a customer. The most enjoyable part is when the customer is so thankful because they had a bad day or it made their day better. – less

friendly and busy working environment
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Marshall, TXJuly 28, 2014
Pros: 10% employee discount, earning tips for taking out groceries
Cons: short breaks
- A typical day would consist of, bagging, rounding up shopping carts from the parking lot, putting items back on the shelf, cleaning up bathrooms and spills, and carrying and placing groceries into customer's cars.
-I learned some of the fundamental rules about how a grocery store operates.
-The manager of my department is definitely not the best manager, – more... however the assistant managers and the managers of the other departments do a pretty good job.
-I enjoyed working with my co-workers
-The hardest part of my job was having to deal with the weather.
-The best part about my job was the friendly customers. – less

many programs in place at once, difficult to get good people to stay
Administrative Manager/Co-Manager (Current Employee), Sterling,ILJuly 28, 2014
Pros: challenging
Cons: work/life balance
Everyone pushed to get many things done with little help, low pay for associates, union environment, turnover, very high expectation. Management working most weekends and holidays. 50+ hours a week. Very little work/life balance.
Co-workers are friendly and helpful to customers and to their peers.
Most enjoyable part is the clerical work and working – more... with the associates and customers.
The hardest part is seeing associates hours getting cut and work expectations continue to grow with little or no help. – less
