  • People stay because they can’t get any other job. Who wants to stand, pull, lift, carry ridiculous loads and work nonstop like a tedious assembly line on nights, weekends and holidays and put up with customers who look down on “essential” workers while the rest of the world is safely (working from) home during a global pandemic especially?!?

  • The Kenwood store has people as “leaders” that have no business acumen; let alone people skills.
    Fraternize with Team Leaders after hours at your apt and you will get a big pay increase. Daily Covid exposure from employees and customers

  • A lot of harassment from men, if you’re a woman you know what I mean.

  • You could not speak to management ever, they were cranky. Made you feel inferior and worthless. After working 30 hours a week for 5 months, they didn't schedule me for 6 weeks. I went to the news station. I had no way to pay rent or car payments.

  • Horrible Management. They do not practice what they preach. Very strange behaviors. Spying. Hiding in isles wearing a backpack listening to Team members conversations as they fronted shelves or went about working. Everything was frowned on for so many, but the few special employees who slept with management or flirted incessantly, were allowed to do as they pleased. Favoritisms and nepotism runs rampant at the Bedford, NH location. Very surprised how many strange, mean spirited people I had to work with. I worked side by some for over a year and not once did many reply with anything g more then a smile, but mostly they more often then not just ignore you. Bizarre. Store Manager or Team Leader ad it’s called? Never, not once said hi to me. Always a half effort smirk or nothing in respond to a hello. Horrible, toxic leadership. All around not advisable to work at this location.

  • It was honestly not what I applied for nor the job description I was givin. Management played favorites and I felt totally unappreciated

  • The job description did not meet the job. I was supposed to be Chef de Partie but mostly warm up foods vs fresh. Store leaders were the nastiest people who I have ever worked with in my life. I resigned and then HR sent me a letter saying I was moonlighting and I was fired.

  • Terrible Team Leader. Not a Team Player nor a Team Leader.

  • I'm glad I'm not the only one saying how toxic it was. They treated me like I was crazy when I spoke up about it.

  • Management never seems to know or care about what's going on in the dept. They are always in the back throwing parties and having unproductive meetings. Alot of team members are out of control and completely undisciplined. Lots of favoritism, lacks real diversity. Completely unorganized. Manager are very superficial and impersonal.
