Every job is a good experience but this supermarket wasn't organized. My co-workers were nice but the bosses were very unfair and demanding. I felt more at work than at home.

decent place-nothing is fair

you wll be treated good at first-then as u work they will take ur hours to benifit a ex-coworker friends or girlfriend-there are different rules for different people; I wanted to work at shop smart for yrs,but once I was there 'I consider this LaPine Shop Smart was one of the worst jobs I have ever had'

It was definitely a trip.

I wanted to work for a long time and was never able to because of the job drought near me and the fact that I wasn’t experienced at all. However shop smart did take me under despite not having experience and I am grateful. With this being said I cannot disregard their shortcoming simply because of that deed. At first I loved the job mainly because I did a simple task and got paid at first it being 10and I liked it, though throughout the months it did start to slip off quickly because of the fact that everybody stopped interacting as much although I went out of my way to try and revitalize

Co workers are nice.

I learned a lot about the grocery business. Teamwork. The rules were not consistent. Training is three days. The rest of the job you have to figure out on your own. Some cashiers that worked there longer than me were asking me questions as to how to do things. Could be the store or possibly corporate

Pros

Helpful people that work there, The customers are great.

Cons

Little chance for advancement, low wages, and no raises, or personal reviews.

Good job for first timers.

I worked here in and out of High School. For teens just needing to make money while going to school or pay some bills it is not too bad of a place to work.

Pros

Good for teens or starting out jobs.

Cons

Pay and no benefits.

Fun, friendly and safe place to work.

I would work the registers. I learned how to use the register. Stock and rotate inventory. Work file maintence and the customer service counter. I enjoyed most of my managers.

Productive

Fast Pace Working. Manageable, have to deal with heavy customers. I've Learned so much is my field. Hardest part of job is when problems happen and most enjoyable will be working as a team.
