Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) – Farmington, UT – August 14, 2018
If you like working where nothing is consistent. the rules change every other day, gossip is everywhere like junior high. few people actually care about doing a good job. over worked and under paid. this is the job for you.
Baker (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 13, 2018
work to get product out on time. you get to learn time-management skills. and fellow workers are willing to lend a helping hand. the most enjoyable part for me is working while being able to listen to the radio.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – August 9, 2018
My experience with smiths was honestly the best one i had so far. I had a good crew, I got along with everyone i worked with, When i needed help there was always someone there to help me. I cant say that i had a bad experience the only negative thing there was the rude customers but honestly that's at every job.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 3, 2018
My store had a lot of unbalanced managers. We had a new manager very frequently. I didn't feel very valued for my work, even if I did really good. The company great and all but my experience was not the best. It is still a good place to work.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 28, 2018
This company is pretty cheap when it comes to paying a livable wage. They found a loophole to pay my position less than state minimum wage by offering benefits instead. Needless to say trying to supports oneself on a smiths salary would be to no avail.
no lunches, no raises, no holiday pay, no overtime. Lack of focus from management weak union.
Busy store love my customers.Always happy to see them .Best service is to always smile.(Never know that might just make someones day).Only wish they would put up a number machine for customers who have been waiting for service
Customer Service Manager/ Lead (Former Employee) – Casper, WY – July 5, 2018
I loved my job at smith's. It was an amazing place to work and the people who worked there made the store a great place to learn and work. Of course there are some bad apples, but you just have to make apple cider with that... :)
compensation was great, benifits were awesome.
Little to no repercussions for adverse attitude and ethical mistakes.
Customer Service/Cashier/Non-Foods/Fuel (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 4, 2018
I enjoy coming in early, the hardest part is doing 8 things in the hour they give me before I open my department, I learned to multi task really well. a typical day at work involves me doing those 8 things, then opening paying bills or fixing them. Management is great I love my team, but they put to much on one person and they don't offer any help to get it done.
was with the company for 4 years and they blew me off when i asked to move up even though it was completely appropriate advancement i was ready and knowledgeable. Store Manger always shrugged stated it wasn't up to him.
Associate (Current Employee) – Utah – June 26, 2018
No chance for advancement. Favoritism and nepotism runs rampant throughout the company. The company promotes the retention of employees by promoting within the company and that the company has talented employees that they work with to,advance in their careers with the company. This is simply untrue. They hire people outside the company who are related to someone higher up in the company or know someone. Those who are lucky enough to be promoted from within the company are seldom qualified for the job and again it's all about who you know or who you're related too. I've know of sons working in the same office as their executive father. Mothers who are corporate executives over divisions within the company who has two sons working as mangers in stores within the same division. I could go on and on. This is a terrible company to work for. A company full of expectations but little to no recognition. Stay away from Smiths.
I enjoy my co-workers and customers, what I do not enjoy is the lack of respect shown to the employees by members of the district staff. I also do not like the fact that certain employees, and members of management get special treatment because they have been there for a long time.
Discounts on all store brand products purchased
Lack of pay, to much expectations and not enough compensation
Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) – Bountiful, UT – June 19, 2018
Working here as a temporary employee was good although it was low pay for being on your feet all day and pushing carts in the heat. The courtesy clerk or bagger is the starting position though, so you can expect minimum wage.
