The store is run with no common sense . No rules except for what you wear.
Deli clerk (Former Employee) – Crown Point, IN – April 3, 2018
Job wasn't bad but they always got my check short and never fixed it and the union did help . They expect you to do the job of 3 people for low pay and very unappreciated. Stacks took away our employee discount and Christmas bonus . They don't order the thinks we need like gloves or products on sale so you are the one the customer gets mad at when we don't have it They also expect you to work over but that is were you better watch your pay. Glad I quit just wasn't worth it be smart to to Jewel
Utility Worker/ Cashier (Former Employee) – Whiting, IN – February 3, 2018
there is a peacefulness being bale to talk to the upper management because they are just as stressed as you are, but they dont appear to be. Everyone is like a family there always trying to help one another.
It is a good and a bad thing there is never not something that needs to be done, if everything is packaged and ready to go there is cleaning that has to be done, filling the floor, filling packages, preparing for the next day etc.. The good part is that you are never just standing around waiting for something to happen, the bad part is when you are overwhelmed it becomes too much to handle when you run out of time to get everything done, you have to try to delegate the importance of things.
like a family there
could use better organization and better communication with emplyees.
Retail Manager (Former Employee) – East Chicago, IN – January 30, 2018
stocking and ordering merchandise. I've learned how to put orders in what shrink was doing inventory rotation cashiering what gross meant. management team was great we all got along and help out with everyone's departments. Culture was fantastic since it was the first big grocery store in town. Hardest part of working was doing my documents. My favorite time going in were to see my employees they were like my brothers.
Casher (Former Employee) – Cedar Lake, IN – January 5, 2018
Management was horrible, pay rate and hours given were very minimal and they expect a lot out of employees. Holidays are required but employees don't get time and a half until they are out of probationary period, which means for the first 60-90 days NEW employees will always be working the holidays.
Met wonderful people, co-workers and customers
Short breaks, lack of respect, talked down to by management

Cashier (Current Employee) – Chesterton, IN – December 24, 2017
I have friendly coworkers and some regulars that are very nice. The hardest part of this job is standing on my feet for long periods of time. The most enjoyable part of this job, is knowing that I helped someone.
Produce Stocker/Floral Clerk (Current Employee) – Crown Point, IN – December 19, 2017
Stracks culture does offer plenty of opportunity for advancement, the job is easy enough to learn, the customers can be difficult, I've learned patience in several situations, and to go above and beyond for our customers. A typical day for me involves stocking produce, and packaging fruit. It is a great first job to have. They offer insurance benefits after 2 years.
Cashier/Customer Service/Pricing Associate (Former Employee) – Crown Point, IN – December 14, 2017
The management at the crown point 2 store shows favoritism, the only associates to get promoted to management are male, after moving an hour away they refused to transfer because they "couldn't afford to lose me." Because these reasons, I quit my job there. If I was as "valued" as they claimed they would have worked with their employee to ensure someone so "valued" would stay with the company.
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – Crown Point, IN – November 20, 2017
When I first started working there, it was great. Once i got the hang of the things that needed to be done throughout my shift, it was pretty easy. We then had a change of management in the bakery field. Things got out of hand after that. Once the new manager was comfortable, the old manger had gotten jealous of the new manager basically. She then tried everything in her power to get her fired, but it did not work. That place is drama filled.
Discounts inside store, free food at times
Not enough breaks, not payed enough for everything you have to do
