Pros: personal growth and development in position
Cons: un-reliable scheduling and hours, pay rate was low
Metro is a great place to work for many reasons. It was the perfect job to have while being in school. Every day has a certain routine and list of duties and within a couple of weeks I learned what had to be done and I was given more and more responsibilities. All of the employees were placed in different shifts according to what they were taught. I had many different shift, from a regular evening shift, to taking charge of sandwiches and party trays-as well as opening and closing. All employees are trained to provide excellent customer service, as well as maintaining a clean working environment. the co-workers are a great group of people, ages ranging from teens to working moms, and every one becomes comfortable and respectful of each other. Management has it's ups and downs, but all jobs do. The most difficult part of the job for me was never the actual work that was involved, but lately the department has some chaotic days where things are not organized in the way they should be, making days more stressful. All tasks assigned get finished, but people become too stressed too easily.
