    Lacking

    Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) Spartanburg, SC (US)

    ProsFlexible hours if you having understanding management.
    Easy transferring to other job openings.

    ConsYou have to lay down the law and guidelines for your hiring, otherwise they will ride you for as long as they possibly can. The pay is pretty horrid for the amount of work. Typical hourly job expectations and restrictions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand people have a life outside of work. Working here as a younger person that isn't in it for much more than a paycheck, it's hard to gain anything useful out of it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Grocery Stocker

    Stock Clerk (Current Employee) Easley, SC (US)

    ProsGood environment and good people to work with. Ample opportunities to get promotions, they are really flexible with your schedule if you are in school.

    ConsScheduling could be hectic and past managers have been known to carry their personal problems to the work area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward the people that are doing their job and extra incentives on holidays would be nice.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    decent job for high schoolers who need spending money until something better comes along

    Service Clerk (Former Employee)

    Prosnothing is really coming to mind.. i guess i had a few interesting conversations with customers. way more rude customers overall though

    Consleadership is bad. manager's quote: "we will hire anyone with two teeth in their head" so naturally the turnover rate is high. you dont always get days off even when you ask well in advance. raises based on seniority not performance so very little incentive to work hard

    A place to start, build basic customer service skills, then move on.

    Service Clerk (Former Employee) Cleveland, GA (US)

    ProsBalanced work life, repetitive tasks to familiarize employees with system, and a general atmosphere of help from other employees at similar levels.

    ConsSome store managers seem to forget who really are the people that make the store money. Not like a professional service firm where a manager makes significant billable hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVisit and observe stores anonymously, note hard workers, and let them know of their accomplishments

    Great first job!

    Book Keeper (Former Employee) Canton, NC (US)

    ProsMost of the people eople are great, relatively easy to transfer to different departments if desired, flexible schedule makes it an almost perfect job for a high school/college kid

    Conslow pay and very difficult to get a raise, also very difficult to advance career, and there isminimal employee training

    Worked full-time night shift stocking while store was closed, negative work environment.

    Stock Clerk (Current Employee) Belton, SC (US)

    ProsHaving a full-time job during the economic downturn, close to home (able to walk to work)

    ConsNight shift is tough on the body, management was not encouraging and mostly functioned by making people fear for their jobs, almost all co-workers were racist, sexist, homophobic, you name it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstall cameras with microphones or don't have night shift workers when store is closed. Would cut down immediately on theft and create a more positive, accountable work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
