Wished I had not taken job there
Cashier janitor (Former Employee) –  Panama City beach flDecember 16, 2018
Get full job description on paper before starting job. Unless you do not mind being clean up crew of kitchens and bathrooms stay away from being a cashier at the Panama City beach Florida fresh market. Hire young people with hardly any experience over those who do have years of experience.
Pros
Discounts nice customrs
Cons
Asst mgrs bad... high turnover empolyees

This is a great place to work for a retired person. or a college student. Otherwise, it is not for an adult to live off. There are a few good things but they don't outweigh the issues and disregarded health violation.
Pros

Going downhill fast
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Toledo, OHDecember 7, 2018
There have been a number of store closings this year, 15 to be exact with no plan to reconstruct current stores that are 10 years or older. Management babysit department heads, while working 10-12 hour days. Store management must get approval from HR to approve write ups before they are given, as if they are too incompetant to understand a basic concept such as discipline. Employees get slaps on the wrist for being consistently late, no call no shows, or voilating company policies, while all management is on the brink of being fired with no warning or current write ups.
Pros
20% off discount
Cons
Long hours, work through breaks, no consistent disciplinary action policy, have to pay into getting pto days, not closed on holidays nor do they offer time and a half.

There's a reason why this was voted worst company to work for
Bakery (Former Employee) –  Bedminster, NJDecember 7, 2018
As a former employee of several years I can honestly say that you're better off being unemployed than dealing with this hostile and toxic work environment. This company has truly gone downhill in the last year and half to two years. The Regional Manager is a bully, everything is brushed under the rug and everyone turns the other cheek instead of doing the right thing. There is no communication, favoritism, and incredibly poor management. If you literally have any other option than working here, DO IT.
Pros
Your co-workers
Cons
literally everything

It was a good job, would recommend.
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) –  Vienna, VADecember 1, 2018
It was a full time job, which was demanding for a 19-year-old, but the actual job demands were minimal and I liked the people that I worked with. Management was very reasonable, as well.

Never again
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) –  Destin, FLNovember 29, 2018
Upper managerment is bad. They don’t act on issues that need to be addressed because they don’t like conflict. Instead of fixing issues at hand, like with department managers or coworkers, they allow conflict to build until someone explodes. Favoritism is also a big issue.

There is no room for growth. Consistently understaffed, but your department manager will never step in to help. They are allowed to sip coffee and text on their phones in the back while everyone else slaves away. Breaks are short, 30 minute lunch and a 10 minute break. Your shifts are so short, you’ll work 5 days and only end up with 30 hours. They treat employees like they don’t have a life outside of work scheduling people 13 days straight and get upset when people request off.

Food policies are definitely getting broken. When new hires are brought it, they are promised 40 hours and no one ever delivers leading new people to either quit or get a new job. They also hire people and don’t tell them their pay leaving new people lost and confused. Department managers consistently talk down on their employees to everyone who will listen and they are never in trouble for gossip and slander.

I worked there for three years before I finally exploded and quit. I’m a very calm person, never once cussed someone out and walked out of a job but they deserved that and so much more. The only positive thing I have to say is the coworkers are mostly like family.

Overall, this company doesn’t pay enough and they don’t compensate those who have been there longer. Everything is disorganized all the way from corporate
  more... down to individual stores. If you’re working there for three years making $13 they will hire someone in making $14 and if you complain they tell you to find a new job.  less
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
Managers, short breaks, negativity

Run Away be any means Necessary
Manager (Current Employee) –  Glen Mills, PANovember 28, 2018
This place is a joke of employment. Worst store management you will ever encouter. They arent loyal to employees nor do they know what they are doing. HR does not care about store realities nor your complaints. The operation is unorganized and can never keep good people because of it.
Pros
Food discount
Cons
Pay, stressful enviornment, bad polices.

So So
Store Associate (Current Employee) –  VANovember 27, 2018
Some days you feel like you actually make a difference with the company. Some days you feel like you are just that trashy mat that everyone avoids throwing away because it reeks. The longer you work there the more it seems to tear you down if you are in a leading hourly role.
Pros
Great Coworkers
Cons
The threat of being the worst company to work for...again
