I have really enjoyed working here the past few years. This was my first job so it was a great experience to gain. I have nothing bad to say about this workplace. I have loved all of my teammates and managers as they have been so much fun to work with. I love getting to interact with patients and knowing most of them before they even come up to the counter.
Stressful and never enough help with more work daily
Bakery Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – November 12, 2018
I used to have a passion with my job . Over time it’s become harder to enjoy due to labor cuts . I’ve become overwhelmed and stressed. I have expressed my feelings to upper management they do not seem to acknowledge my concerns therefore I have not been interested in being in management anymore . They have made the bonus program unrealistic and Unachievable . Something that salary workers look forward to. I am very disappointed in this company that I once planned on retiring from .

Starbucks Barista (Former Employee) – Prairie Village, KS – September 6, 2018
Ball food stores provided many opportunities for growth within the company. I began work there as a Starbucks Barista and worked with a great team. This job was sometimes stressful but they were flexible with my schedule and treated their employees well.
Very fast paced work during rush periods then slow otherwise
GRILL CHEF (Former Employee) – Leawood, KS – August 11, 2018
Management was extremely rude to other teammates at times and understaffed us a lot. It was hard for people to stay. Pretty physically demanding job and rushes were super busy. The most enjoyable part was having a pleased customer. Typical day at work consisted of a busy lunch and dinner period, cleaning procedures, prep work, and helping out in the deli. I learned a lot about how to cook.
Understaffed, hot, received many burns, stressful environment at times
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – May 1, 2018
Overall it has a been an excellent learning experience. From learning new tactics on how to handle confrontation and gaining people skills. Employees generally come in fit for the company without any experience. Overall a good company to work for.
Please steer clear away from this grocery store. The management is lacking in almost every department, and you aren’t rewarded for your hard work. No training or direction is provided, in most positions ( especially the bakery department). You are expected to do a 2-3 person job , by yourself, and you’re expected to stay late. Take my advice, don’t apply at this store.
General Accounting (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – January 7, 2018
I thought moving to the corporate office would be a step forward in a possible career with the company. Instead, I was left without much work to do and limited time for breaks, etc. The salary increase was very small for the transition.
Cashier (Current Employee) – North Kansas City, MO – December 18, 2017
Not all job are peaches and cream. But with this job I'm able to do thing steady and work my own pace. People here are very friendly, maybe sometime not the customer that so friendly lol but others are. And that what make my job worth it. And the weekly pay for me as a full time cashier. I love it lol
Cashier (Current Employee) – Lee's Summit, MO – November 16, 2017
At times it can be real busy and I like it that way. If I am waiting on customers to come to my line I try to keep busy without wandering too far so that I may be able to jump onto the register when needed. This is not asked of me, but I do enjoy it.
Produce Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – November 7, 2017
Communication is very poor. I am the manager but I cant control costs because of forced distribution. Upper management seems to be blind of what really goes on. Bottom line is managers at my level don't seem to compensated for how hard we work. The hardest part of the job is the "curve balls that are thrown at you every day because of the lack of communication or breakdown In communication that occurs constantly. The best part is meeting different people every day. The daily interaction with customers can be both enjoyable and upsetting. The satisfaction of setting up a produce department can be rewarding but the amount of product that is wasted is considerable.
Journeyman Meat Cutter (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – July 20, 2016

Promotion Specialist (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – July 16, 2016
I enjoy the staff of the deli that I work with. They are team players and are tremendous to support and assist me in whatever way I may need. They are wonderful to work with and that is the biggest positive of this position. It makes such a difference overall.
