Cashier, Bookkeeper, Scan Coordinator (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC; Summerville, SC – October 8, 2018
I've worked at 2 different EarthFare locations. My first job was at the Columbia, SC location. I started as a cashier and absolutely fell in love with my front end manager, she was AMAZING. I was very reliable (something i didn't know was hard to find) and was promoted within about 4 months to scan coordinator. My "promotion" did not include a raise and I worked directly under our store manager. She was terrible. Very critical of everything, but never willing to help. Most of the time she would sit in her office with the door closed and blinds drawn. Many times when the lunch rush began and we were short staffed up front (go figure) I would have to leave my work to help, because the manager would not answer pages. I gave a two weeks notice, two weeks before i left, but was told by my manager the day before my last day that i hadn't worked my two weeks notice....like she genuinely thought i had to work exactly 14 days for it to be a notice............................Anyway, I moved to Summerville, SC and originally was not going to go back to EarthFare, but i needed the money badly, so I took up a part time job at that location as a cashier. It was great! Except for one of the Assistant Managers. I loved my front end team, loved my front end manager, i was promoted to a bookeeper AND received a raise! I quit my other job and worked at EarthFare for about 3 more months before finding a more stable, better paying job with benefits.
