Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INAugust 18, 2014
I moved to assistant manager in a short period of time. I enjoyed this job, learning how to manage and schedule employees. The hardest part of the job was the location.

HEAVY WORKLOAD FOR VERY LITTLE PAY
Store Manager (Former Employee), MichiganJuly 25, 2014
Pros: vacation time and the customers
Cons: having to go in at 5 every morning, working 12 hour days sometimes more and high demands for low pay
I was a store manager and I loved the customers and my employees but it was a very demanding job. The upper management demands more and more every day but gives managers less and less hours for their store which means the salaried managers have to work more to make up for it without getting paid extra and gets very little time to accomplish anything. – more... I was on the register for 6 hours a day by myself while trying to complete the daily paperwork and other management tasks while keeping the coffee going, keeping the store clean and stocked, checking in vendors, counting inventory, etc. And then I would get one employee in at noon and finally able to get more done. Also, I would have to drive to other locations to help out even if it meant my store being understaffed. The upper management of the district wondered why they kept losing managers, well it's because the company works their management/staff into the ground, takes advantage of them and only cares about increasing profit, buys new stores but doesn't put any money into the existing stores and doesn't care about their employees at all. Oh and another thing, as a manager one of our performance models was to remove our employees' obstacles for completing tasks... well maybe the company should take it's own advice and remove the store mangers' obstacles. – less

creative place to work
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE, ASSITANT MANAGER (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJune 3, 2014
Pros: making money
Cons: no future
There is not much to say about this job, I took over the mangers job because they stepped down. I did learn how to handle running shifts by myself as well as handling all the store orders and banking deposits. I think the hardest part of the job was recovering from getting held up at gun point. However, I really enjoyed working with different people.

Typical gas station work environment
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INDecember 1, 2013
Pros: free fountain drinks
Cons: no lunch break or any break no matter how many hours you work
work day is either fast or slow based on customer volume
I have learned bakery and deli item preparation on this job
management is typically an easy task and very scaled back
coworkers are friendly and seek to get ahead in the workforce
hardest part of the job is knowing its an insecure, unsafe place
making bakery items that people look forward to is – more... the best job part – less

Store Manager (Current Employee), Muncie, INNovember 13, 2013
Lots of hours, lots of paperwork, little benefits. Want managers to work 60 plus hours per week for minimal pay and minimal benefits. Loads of responsibility for very little incentive.

Easiest job I have ever had
Cashier (Current Employee), Muncie, INNovember 12, 2013
Pros: free pop in village pantry mug
Cons: no lunch breaks, only two ten minute breaks every eight hour shift.
A typical day at Village Pantry involves standing behind a counter ringing up customers for eight hours, only leaving to clean/use the restroom.
I learned a lot about communicating with customers in a proper and timely manner.
My manager was competent and lead the company well.
My co-workers were often high school drop outs looking for any job to support – more... their children.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with upset customers.
The best part of the job was talkign to friendly regulars. – less

My day of Management
Retail Store Manager (Current Employee), Muncie, INNovember 7, 2013
Pros: vacations, and all you want fountain drink
Cons: healthcare and going to other stores for resets
I close down my day at registers and download all registers into my computer. I count all Cigs, and do lottery count. Then I go into office and go through all register drops and count out their money, do all balances for the day. Then I have a store order to prepare for, I order all items brought into the store. I have payroll to do everyday to verify – more... their times of clocking in and out to keep my budget. I even run register when we have a flow of customers coming in. I do stocking and cleaning of the store.
I enjoy all my customers, always speak to them and greet them with a smile.
My co-workers respect me and love me as a manager because im always willing to listen and always willing to help in any way I can. – less

General Manager (Current Employee), Noblesville, INOctober 17, 2013
I love my job. But they are selling a lot of the stores. I feel that I just need some where that is just a little bit more of a stable company to work for, that I can excel in the company, and build on what I already have.

not a good place to work
Acting Store Manager (Former Employee), Warsaw, INOctober 16, 2013
Pros: work at your own pace
Cons: unreliable management
Working for Village Pantry was definitely an eye opener. Poor training procedures, no follow up, heavy workloads with not enough hours allowed to accomplish goals. Upper management believes that security cameras are ineffective.

I worked well with my team players everyone was really nice and easy to get along with. I severed about 300 customers a day so it was definitely high paced but I really enjoyed working there and had a lot of fun!
