Good first job for students
Cashier and Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Portland, MIMay 22, 2017
Store is always kept clean . Pay is terrible minimum wage and it's only about 20 hours a week unless your management, no benefits unless your management. I would recommend Tom's for a first job or students.

No benefits

Productive and good place to start.
Service Clerk (Former Employee) –  Portland, MIDecember 10, 2015
A typical day is consistent with every other day you work. you clean spills, retrieve carts, face product and bag groceries. I learned that starting positions like that are seldom going to be very enjoyable, but you have to pay your dues to make it to the top. Management was fair, but it was more shuffling and ordering than it was coaching and communicating. My coworkers were enjoyable considering that most of them were approximately the same age as I. The hardest part of the job had to be the presence of negativity each day. It would come from different people each day, but it was almost always present. The most enjoyable part of the job had to be the fact that I worked in a grocery store, whenever I went on break, I had a variety of treats and food to select from.
Pros
Fair balance between work and life, short days
Cons
retrieving carts in winter, being shuffled

I really miss working here! There was always something that needed to be done, and I loved it! It allowed me to meet the people in my hometown and assist them with any shopping questions.

relaxed atmosphere at times
Service Clerk (Former Employee) –  Portland, MIApril 3, 2013
On a typical day at Toms food center I mostly faced items that were previously placed on shelfs. I occasionally bagged customers items and gathered carts. On the days that I opened or closed, the duties included general cleaning. I learned that there are many ways to get things done it just depends on who does it, for example when i gathered the carts I collected all the carts to one cart rack and took 10 at a time where as other coworkers went to each rack and took 2 trips per rack. My coworkers made the job enjoyable as well as some of the mangement. the hardest part of the job was when you ran out of things to do yet you had to do something.
