Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Portland, MI – December 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.
TEAM LEADER/GROCERY CLERK/CASHIER (Former Employee) – Portland, MI – January 14, 2016
Management is terrible, they are not considerate of their employees, no full time positions available, no benefits, not willing to work around schedules, no advancement, huge turnover, people in leadership positions that should not be there.

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.
