Suggestions for improvement

  • Maybe cater more to everyone and not just the older crowd when taking care of the customer

What I like about the company

We recently had a customer die suddenly leaving a pregnant wife and 3 kids. We mentioned this to our director and asked to approve a $50 gift card for family. He went above and did $200 gift card. It was amazing to help this family.

What I dislike about the company

Keeping employees that do not keep the companies standards. I do not feel like employees that don't have the companies core values at heart should be allowed to keep their job. Work hard and take care of the customer.

What I like about the company

I enjoy going to work everyday. Each day is different which is nice because I get bored easily!

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes I feel like corporate forgets how things are on a store level. They are doing very good about going and visiting stores though!

Freedom to work independently

Will be expected to be self motivated and take initiative.

Gender Equality

Pleasantly surprised by the number of women in management positions.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Great place for older people to work. Flexible hours and light physical work can be accommodated if necessary.

Career Development

Great opportunities to advance if you’re serious about your career within this industry. This company often prefers to promote from within and quickly.

Overall compensation for your work

Cashiers and baggers usually start at around minimum wage. Managers are paid a comfortable living wage plus overtime.

Office / Work Environment

Friendly people doing fun work. Everything the customer sees is the priority everything they can’t is a disorganized mess. This means the offices

Environmental Friendliness

So much waste, no better or worse than any other grocery store, but still so much wasted food everyday. Hardly anything is recycled, not even paper or plastic. The easiest things to recycle.

Work-Life Balance

Full time employees are expected to be VERY FLEXIBLE with their schedule, working all holidays including thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.

Job Security

Very few people are removed from their posts. If they are it’s for a good reason like theft or consistently calling in sick etc.

Handicapped Accessibility

The front doors and aisles are wide enough for wheelchairs however the “back room “ where everything is stored is not AT ALL. It’s hardly accessible to able bodied people, even heavy set people will have trouble getting to what they need at times.

Workplace Safety

Mostly a safe environment however the “back room” in which everything is stored is a disorganized mess and major tripping hazard. People have fallen in the past, it’s a matter of time before it happens again.

Challenging Work

Working in customer service is always stressful. The people are the most difficult part of the job regardless of what positions or department you’re in.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very few people of color in this store and a handful of disabled people.
