Cashier/Sales Associate in Washington State

I have worked at Smart Foodservice for a long time they do have high turnover and management is not train and in most cases not qualified to take on that role. The company has changed hands a few times and the employees are not treated very well. You come into work and you will be signed to a task or a department to work you are expected to work fast and do other jobs as well. They are not very good with other cultures and people over 40, The hard part about the job you are treated badly and you are never thanked in most cases.

The job is a typical warehouse store job. No opportunity to grow within the company because you get stuck in one position. Managers are allowed to not perform any job duties and assign work to other employees. Managers also verbally reprimand employees by demeaning them and threatening your job. Safety issues galore. Employees are taught to use rolling carts to stock high shelf instead of ladders. Lots of drama unless you are part of inner circle. Intoxication and drug use are constant at the store. Discriminating hiring practices.

Everything was going fine at the start with everyone being friendly and showing me the ropes then the corona virus came around which caused about 5 people to leave which made it hard for 4 of us before we got more people during summer and fall. Customers complained about quality of products and lack of service but there was not much we could do at the time. My manager didn't see a problem with what was happening with the warehouses cutting deliveries and the rest of us dealing with the rude customers and explaining why we don't have products.

Interviews and was hired within 2 days on the assumption I would be full time and making 16 per hour as advertised on Indeed at the time. Started and was told I was only hired for 14 and I was only part time as only managers are considered full time. The store manager was vindictive arbitrarily reprimanding associates left and right. Other associates engaged in drama and gossip with a lot of workplace politics as well as the worst nepotism I have experienced at a job. Your hours can be cut at any time for any reason and the company continually promises to make you full time and get you benefits with no intention of doing anything of the sort. Ultimately if you are desperate as I was at the time it might be a good job but do not expect to stay there very long.

I have flourished at Smart Foodservice. The company is very supportive as well as the store level management. Great benefits package and compensation for your work. I would recommend Smart Foodservice to anyone interested in a career in the grocery industry.

I can't remember but it seemed very basic and they didn't respond well when I asked questions of my own.
