Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 8, 2018
Poor management, always changing policies or never consistent with them. Huge lack of communication between employees and management. They don’t staff property in order to provide adequate services to the customers on busy time of the year i.e. the first of the month or holidays.
I enjoy helping people and I get along with my co-workers
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Great Falls, MT – November 5, 2018
I have a positive attitude and enjoy helping people this is a job that I enjoy going to daily. I would like it if the courtesy clerks would be more respectful and listen to management and be able to complete tasks. I don't mind helping out but I don't feel we should have to do there jobs for them on a regular basis. I do my best and try to assist when needed. I would like it if everybody worked together and co-workers would get along better.
Stocker/Unloader (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – October 29, 2018
Simple day included working all the departments stocking more then I should have done and unloading a truck 3 days a week with limited space in the back room. Daily tasks included greeting all the customers and putting them first.
Nepotism and management that never appriciates employee work
Melon Production Lead Holiday, Utah (Current Employee) – Holiday Ut – October 24, 2018
The company is full of nepotism which makes advancing extremely difficult. you can work as hard as you can and see others pass by and never receive a compliment the best you get is "it looks good but...." or they only talk to you if there is something wrong. no appreciation, and stressful work environment with advances going to family and friends of management
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 21, 2018
Most positions are part time and don't provide consistent hours to make enough to live off of. Hard to get a second job because if you don't offer open availability they only have to schedule you for one shift per week.
inconsistent scheduling, find out schedule Friday evening before the work week, no set schedules
Cashier (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – October 15, 2018
I enjoyed working at the job. I learned while working their the ways of working with the merchandise. Best management i ever worked with. If you enjoy working with different product and many different career paths, you will love working here. The hardest part is customers trying to get free product or fighting you to get a discount, but management is always on the ball and willing to assist. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the elderly with their purchase and wishing them a great day.
Great discounts, Positive atmosphere, great management
Courtesy clerk (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 13, 2018
Learned a great deal in customer service at Smith's, as for labor it was all basic upkeep of the store and helping and assisting customers when needed as well as fetching carts. All would have been a laid-back work environment if not for such the fast-paced demand from customers and management.
Fuel/Bakery/Service Deli Associate (Former Employee) – Brigham City, UT – October 11, 2018
You learned to be quick-paced but still within reason so you don't hurt yourself or others. Employee's and customers you work with each day make things interesting. I loved working there. It was fun, some days felt longer than others but everyone gets those days, whether it was super busy or slow day and you got more work done.
10% off store brands
breaks were up in the air.. some positions they received them others didn't.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – October 9, 2018
This place was great as a starter job, my first one. But this work is tedious and requires only the most basic of motor skills and has no real fun in it. My co workers were great and it was fun to work with them, but there is no real competition in the workplace which leads to a lack of motivation in the workplace.
Discount on Kroger products, flexible schedule, co-workers can be fun.
Short breaks, usually short staffed, no advancement or competition.
Department Manager (Former Employee) – Wyoming – October 9, 2018
I loved my time at Smith's. The only downside is the older MGMT within the stores that are not willing to change with the growing industry or even within the company guidelines. Teams work together wonderfully with the occasional mishap of course.
Decent healthcare, Pto, advancement opportunities
Short breaks, a lot of passing the buck, can only focus on one uplift it seems.
Fuel Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) – Saint George, UT – September 26, 2018
Smith's was a great place to work if you're not working in the Fuel Center. If you're in that dedpartment, you will be working alone and miserable. Also, if you need to use the restroom, you have to walk all the way across the parking lot and into the main building. Other than that, the pay and the hours are pretty good.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – South Jordan, UT – September 26, 2018
There are good and bad people who work for Smiths. From my experience, no one treats each other with respect or dignity. The lead CSM is great but the others are terrible. Everyone is very hypocritical.
Some coworkers and customers are nice
Management and other coworkers are terrible and love power
Order Selector/Picker (Former Employee) – Layton, UT – September 24, 2018
If you like working in a warehouse and working 12+ hour shifts then this would be a perfect job, pay was a base of 20 and the more items you picked the better you got paid great people to work for awesome upper management long hours great pay but little to no social life and weird days off.
There was never really good communication between coworkers. So when you go to say you're going to be off on certain days not even the csms knew you'd tell one csm and then they wouldn't even tell the boss.
