A terrific work experience overall, but lacked intellectual satisfaction.
Pros: Great products & company, customer loyalty, high-quality employees
Cons: Too many 'short' work weeks, unable to specialize in best use/talent area, lack of career opportunities.
Be ready for a physically challenging, non-stop work day w/ very short breaks. Customer service and interaction is a WOW priority!!
Your personality must be engaging and proactive, even at the cash register. You will perform EVERY job in the store, from the trash and grocery carts to working in the dairy box. Stocking and straightening product on shelves is a major part of your day. Your fellow teammates are usually of very high character and really keep you on point. Benefits and compensation are first rate for a retailer of this type. Management is smart and creative, but often, they are heavy-handed with their micro-management style and practices.
