Meat and Seafood Clerk in Ashburn, VA

A good place to work. Friendly staff and positive work environment. Management support. Some days are slower than others, but no two days are the same.

Management and other associates are great! They always make you feel valued and no two days are ever the same. Several departments to work in with good flexible schedules.

Ok job to work. Would say make sure your mental is intact. The job doesn’t have understanding or respect for your personal life but co workers are understanding and patient. Love the customers!

Overworked, Understaffed, Unmotivating If you join as a part-timer, expect to work as much (or more) than a full-timer there to be the normal, at minimum wage and with your only benefit being a small discount on store brand products and nothing else. The work life balance is garbage even working part-time. After your first few weeks your hours will get ramped up until you find yourself working 40-48 hours a week on constant. You aren't even offered overtime for going past the 40 hour mark if you work Sundays as they only give time and a dollar for work done on Sunday. For Sundays to be considered overtime, you'd have to have a role as a full-timer. You might get offered to go onto a full-time position but with people having to cover multiple departments to compensate for the lack of staff around the store, no one will have time to train you and you won't have time to get trained. You won't even get properly trained to do the job you're already doing. The schedule is terrible too as you'll have to bend your back so many times to meet the needs of the store. You'll work mornings, afternoons, evenings, this department, that department. The schedule might not even make sense sometimes as sometimes a department will be scheduled with not enough or NO PEOPLE maintaining it, leading to you having to get called in a lot. If you'd like to plan for something in your personal life, don't pick up the phone on your day off. If you want a decent sleep schedule, GOOD LUCK.Management often doesn't listen to the employees. If something's wrong in the store, they'll push it to the side and focus on something else. If an employee has a problem, they'll say they'll do something about it and then forget about it later. We had broken equipment in the store and it took several months to get them replaced. When I first started we had around 40 chairs for the breakroom but as time went on they kept breaking and breaking until we were left with around 5, leaving people unable to sit in the breakroom with management seemingly doing nothing about it despite the complaints. The managers will even come off as uninviting and annoyed when you talk to them sometimes. If you work hard and get a raise, it might just be because of the minimum wage of the area increasing. Started working 11.50, ended with 12.50 because of minimum wage going up in the area. Most jobs in the area will offer ALOT more than that, even if they're entry level. The only motivation you'll get is from your coworkers, as with the terrible pay, poor hours, inconsiderate customers, abrasive management, unkept work environment, and short breaks with an unkept break room, you'll eventually find more and more reasons to leave and move on somewhere else. Most new people who come here leave a few weeks later and you'll understand why.

Good part time job. Clear expectations. As a cashier they post weekly charts on speed, very motivating.Sometimes they have “friend groups” Wouldn’t give hours if you weren’t friends with them, things might’ve changed since new management
