Cashier (Former Employee) – Gainesville, TX – May 20, 2016
Typical day was greeting a customer, scanning items, handling the transaction, and finishing up over and over again. Standard cashier work. I learned a lot of codes that could help with future jobs, how to better keep track of a lot of things, and how to dissolve conflict customers come up with. Management was friendly and helpful Hardest part was standing for hours, bending over to get groceries out of the card over and over again. Most enjoyable was helping the customers with my knowledge on the deals we offered.
Will add that, besides working for over 8 months, they will not hesitate to cut hours and hire more and more people until you get only 10 hours a week.
Leaning how to better multitask, employee discount
Hardly any opportunity to move up, easily cut hours.

Night Stocker (Former Employee) – Keller, TX – March 13, 2016
Came in at night with my friends, unloading the trucks, unwrapped the pallets, distributed the products through out the store, cleaned up the store, set up the displays and got the store organized. I learned to organize my time wisely. Management was great. My co-workers were great. Everything was enjoyable.
I learned how to help costumers and handle them when they were angry or being unreasonable. The hardest part of the job was typically trying to get every customer out as fast as possible. I had a variety of co-workers ranging from High-schoolers, to college students, and several older persons.
Easy to learn, Excellent starting job
Few full time job opportunites, low pay, few opportunities to advance
Do not ever work here, no matter how desperate you are
Cashier (Current Employee) – Southlake, TX – February 23, 2016
Management treats all of the employees as machines and not humans. Forced to get an enormous amount of work done in an unrealistic time frame, immediately get written up anyways. Only told what you're doing wrong, nothing on how to fix it or what you're doing right.
Tom Thumb was a busy convenience store, where customers and employees were very diverse. The team was fun to work with, we would take turns doing jobs around the store. We always had something new to learn in the store, like when something broke down and someone had to figure out how to fix it. Co-workers were good people, and I'd say the hardest part of the job was being hired on at a time where there were many problems with one associate in particular.. but the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the regular customers enter the store and having fun and pleasant conversations.
Head Cashier (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – February 1, 2016
Love my Store, management, coworkers and the customers. It was a fast pace store. Cross training was always on the table. Moving up was a big thing to everybody. Management always was willing to help in any way that can,
I learned how to organize the different areas in the bakery as well as design some of the orders. Similar skills were taught in floral as I learned how to create arrangements and run the desk. The Starbucks inside the store was my main job, learning how to both open and close down the cafe, learning how to handle inventory and date checks, and memorizing consistent drink recipes.

Clerk (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – January 1, 2016
It's the army, what is there to say? It's active, fulfilling, honorable, and simply fast paced. You either keep up or get out. It is hard work, but it's enjoyable. The rewards and pride are greater than everything.
