Wonderful Employees, but..
Checker/Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Mount Vernon, WA – December 12, 2018
Grocery Outlet is a wonderful place to work, and shop. The employees are wonderful and manage to stay upbeat and positive. The environment is full of laughs, positivity, and plenty of play-fun joking. Coworkers get along very well and are all very polite to customers. The products are fairly priced and staff try to make it stay clean.
However, it is very dirty and many customers come back to return already expired and many items are not priced or if they are they don't match the signs that they are stocked with. In the urgent times when managers and courtesy workers are needed for overrides and other tasks, they do not come to the front in an orderly fashion. The floors are very dirty if you sit there long enough to examine them and a lot of the registers are outdated and freeze or breakdown in times of need. Some would describe it as run-down. The hardest part of the job is having to stay in one spot for 8 hours- taking a hard toll on the back, shoulders, neck and hips.
No benefits, bad communication
