A lot depends on your district manager.
Assistant Manager Retail (Former Employee) –  Watertown, NYMay 29, 2018
I had several district managers over my 3 years working there. They do not allow store managers to hire employees so even if your store is hurting for employees, which most are, it could take weeks before you even know if a new employee are on the way. They will however throw money at you, work 60 hours a week no problem, bout to quit, have a raise. If you work hard and want no life out of work you found the place
Pros
They will pay you a lot if you are worth keeping
Cons
Everything else

Highly stressful
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Clay, NYMay 24, 2018
The customers are awesome.

There were too many manager changes and employee changes to get any routine going. Made it difficult to work day to day.

Daily procedures changed too often. Which confused both workers and customers.

Productive
Food service/customer service (Former Employee) –  Syracuse, NYMay 10, 2018
Always had something to do. Never too busy. Coworkers were very friendly. Never any miscommunication. Over all very nice place to work. Customers can get very mean but as long as you keep your self together the way you have to, you get through it.

Great Entry-Level Job
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Watertown, NYApril 4, 2018
Expect long shifts (sometimes overnight), decent pay, and a small team to work with. This is a quick-paced job. Head management and corporate visits are normal and encouraged. It's a great entry-level job if you are willing to work.
Pros
Community-Based
Cons
No Breaks, Long Hours

Busy, fast paced, demanding
Food and Beverage Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Watertown, NYMarch 15, 2018
If you are available to work anytime of the day or night and don’t mind overtime this is the job for you. Pay is excellent but hours can be demanding. I don’t recommend a position in management as they expect entirely too much from them but give little control how the stores are staffed. Upper management has little to no regard for employees who have family and lives outside of their job.
Pros
Pay is excellent
Cons
No breaks, many expectations, frequent last minute schedulechanges

Poor hours
Night Manager (Former Employee) –  Broadalbin, NYFebruary 15, 2018
While it was a long time ago, I left Fastrac Markets because of scheduling, i would often work 12 to 13 days straight with out a break in between and that became stressful after 2 years. Is it was a night position, nobody else was willing to work the shift to allow for a day off unless they were forced to
Cons
Poor scheduling

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Lowville, NYJanuary 3, 2018
It is a good company to work for. If you are in the retail side of it don't plan on moving up the ladder quickly. Higher management could care more for their employees but over all it is a good company.
Pros
Above minumum wage
Cons
schedule is all over the place
