Dishwasher/ cook (Former Employee), Dawson Creek, BC – February 6, 2013
Pros: one free meal paid each day worked
Cons: managers lacked proper communication skills
While working at the pantry my role was just to ensure the dish area was clean. After six or eight months of working I was put on as a cook and my job was to keep area clean as possible while ensuring my orders got made correctly and quickly.
Server (Former Employee), Chilliwack, BC – September 12, 2012
Pros: great co workers and the tips
A work day at the Pantry was never boring, They trained there staff well and taught you how to do your job properly. I enjoyed working for the Pantry because of serving different types of people and knowing that it was up to myself as their server to give the customer the best experience and great service would get them and others by word of mouth to – more... come back again and again. There was not a hard part working as a server or while setting up for a banquet or the clean up it was all worth it to see customers have a good time and enjoy a meal, Not many places have good service any more. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Jackson, MS – May 3, 2013
Pros: full time work
Cons: bad security
This job has no benefits and only pays min wage. The job is fairly easy but the security practices are not good for a gas station and could easily put an employee at risk from robberies. The stress is low unless you work the nightshift when the danger of being robbed is the highest.
Team Member (Former Employee), Crystal River, FL – April 15, 2013
My work was over night so I was always by myself. Management was always trying to find different ways of doing my job. The hardest part of the job was that I was always alone. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was alone. I was able to get more done.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), King, NC – April 1, 2013
Pros: insurance benefits even for parttime employees
Cons: no breaks
A typical day includes greeting all customers and trying to make their shopping experience pleasant. Keeping the store stocked and clean is also very important. A clean and friendly environment is was we strive for. My co-workers are all very easy to work with as is my managers. Standing in one spot for hours without a break can be the hardest part – more... of the job, but meeting people and seeing regular customers makes it worth it. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brooklyn, MS – January 24, 2013
Pros: getting off work
I worked alot of late shifts that drained me. I was always nervous of who would walk in and I never felt safe. If anyone else was working with me, they would find something else to do and keep me on counter taking care of customers. The best part of my day was going home.
Customer Service Assistant Manager Full-time (Current Employee), Palm Bay, FL – January 16, 2013
Pros: it's a paycheck
Cons: unsafe working conditions, with the possibility of a robbery at any time.
It's like being a bartender without the tips. Management ignores important issues regarding employee safety, and time-cards are changed without notice, or consent. When concerns are voiced, management and higher ups laugh at it, because they know we can't do anything about it if we expect to keep our jobs. I am currently actively looking for a position – more... in almost any other field than this one. – less
