Store Manager (Former Employee), Greensboro, NC – July 3, 2014
Pros: job freedom to have fun doing our jobs
Cons: no breaks for a real lunch, had to eat on the job between customers. could not leave the job for eight hours or more.
Each day at work was about the same. I was not over joyed at the location of the store, but we seem to get along good with the companies around us and maintained a very good relationshop with the customers. I feel like our business would have been better if the company would have kept the store more modern and attractive. The parking lot needed repaving – more... and the store itself was very run down. Many people I talked with said they would not come to the store because they felt it was unsafe. My co workers were the best. It was three of us and we all covered each other. We learned to be friends as well as co workers. The hardest part of the job was catching someone stealing and having to banned them from the store or call police and charging them with theif. The best part of the job was the customers. We all become to know many of our regular customers and could enjoy a visit from them as well as serving them. – less
Sales Associate/Assistant Manager in training (Former Employee), Sanford, NC – June 29, 2014
The team in the store was great. The store manager worked with us and with our schedules. Corporate is what screwed us. The area we worked in wasn't the safest, and yet corporate still demanded that we work alone to close the store, all while completing the tasks set forth. It could be done, but was more difficult than it needed to be. All to save a – more... little more money. – less
It is a great experiance but the pay and benifits are awful.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FL – June 24, 2014
Pros: learned great people skills
Cons: not what i want to do with my life.
The experience of have to tend to different types of people and trying to sell them products. has been interesting. Management is fine he tries to give me hours to work but corporate is very strict when it comes to that. The pay sucks for all they expect out of me. Don't get me wrong its an easy job, but when they have you working by yourself they want – more... to handle customers and pick up sales and take of the store and premises its self. It gets kind of hectic, but I still get the job done. – less
Subway (Current Employee), Ocala, FL – June 3, 2014
Pros: free drinks.
Cons: no breaks and rare help during shifts.
Working at Subway isn't that bad. It can be harder then most people expect because it isn't all about just making sanwhiches. At work you have dishes to do constantly, food to prep, break to bake, charts to be filled in, and much more. The co-workers are nice but don't always do wht they need to and it makes things harder. I used to like working there – more... but after being there over 2 years I don't really like it anymore. – less
Stressful job at times and a great deal of picking up slack for others
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Concord, NC – April 19, 2014
Pros: healthcare, constant workload, etc.
A typical day at work could be anywhere from slow with occasional increases in customer flow or fast paced with a high volume of customers. The co-workers were mostly reliable however if a coworker did not show up these responsibilities constantly got pushed onto myself or other workers. Picking up the slack of others was the hardest part of the job – more... and the most enjoyable part was having clear and concise leadership on tasks to be completed. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Surfside Beach, SC – April 15, 2014
Pros: working with nice people at the beach
Cons: no heath insurance
I worked for the Pantry in the Myrtle Beach SC area for years. I loved every store I worked in. I especially loved the management and crew at the Surfside Beach SC location. Just like family. We sold everything that a vacationer or local would need such as groceries, gas, medical supplies, beer, lottery, and I always did grocery day because of my organizational – more... skills and readiness to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. My manager always asked me to train new employees because she knew I knew my job forward and backwards. My job offer with the SCDOT ended this position. – less
