you need to be a hard working employee to make it in the bussiness
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Fillmore, NYJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: .50 small coffee
Cons: you only got a break when you could make time for one.
when you would come into work you would have to open the safe, count your drawer to make sure it was correct, then count behind the counter sales items. Then I would have to check and see what wasn't done from the shift before me and catch up on that and then start making pizzas, subs and coffee. I would check all the shelves to make sure they were – more... faced and then check the coolers to make sure they were stocked up for my shift. during all that I would be ringing on the cash register. It was nice to see happy faces come in the store and I liked being able to help people out wither its a customer or a co worker. Then at the end of my shift I would make sure the store was clean and stocked and then I would do my daily reports and count my drawer and make my final deposit. Whle on shift we would also be asked to do scan for store order, or sign in vendors and take there orders. – less

Co-Manager / District Trainer (Former Employee), Lockport, NYJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: getting a negative profit store to a positive profit
Cons: having the store manager disagree with me when trying to help fix their store

- learned policy and procedures to keep moving up in positions in the company
- Loved 1 manager, the others were against me when I came to their stores to help them get back in the positive for profits
- Loved my co-workers as they all loved me
- Hardest part was traveling to new stores that – more... were in the negative, advising them of the policies and procedures and getting them to follow them and the associates were not cooperative
- smiling everyday, having the customers know my name when I go to different stores, having the customers refer other customers to my store – less

This job was ok. There was some conflict between the co-workers. Popularity was a problem for workers with the managers.

I met a lot of amazing people and made – more... a lot of new friends. – less

Very high stress and dangerous at times
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, NYAugust 14, 2013
A typical day started at 5:00am if everyone showed up to work u put the newspapers out, started the cash depostit from night before and prepared registers for the day. you had to have good time management skills and good customer service skills. Management was poor when it came to backup. Deliveries were never on time. The most enjoyable part was the – more... friendships with customers and associates. You learned about their lives and really cared about each other. – less
