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.
Stressful job at times and a great deal of picking up slack for others
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Concord, NC – April 19, 2014
Pros: healthcare, constant workload, etc.
A typical day at work could be anywhere from slow with occasional increases in customer flow or fast paced with a high volume of customers. The co-workers were mostly reliable however if a coworker did not show up these responsibilities constantly got pushed onto myself or other workers. Picking up the slack of others was the hardest part of the job – more... and the most enjoyable part was having clear and concise leadership on tasks to be completed. – less

Pros: working with nice people at the beach
Cons: no heath insurance
I worked for the Pantry in the Myrtle Beach SC area for years. I loved every store I worked in. I especially loved the management and crew at the Surfside Beach SC location. Just like family. We sold everything that a vacationer or local would need such as groceries, gas, medical supplies, beer, lottery, and I always did grocery day because of my organizational – more... skills and readiness to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. My manager always asked me to train new employees because she knew I knew my job forward and backwards. My job offer with the SCDOT ended this position. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Sumter, SC – February 9, 2014
Pros: discounts on the company to diffrent places.
Cons: having 3 breaks a day going back to work refreshed and more energized.
A typical day at work for me is going in early to get the pass on and I have learned how to communicate well with others and I have had great experience working in management as a Team leader and working with co-workers is a great experience but some of the co-workers can be a challenge but the hardest part of the job is miscommunication sometimes and – more... the enjoyable part of the job was taking care of others need and wants with a smile on my face and knowingly at the end of the day I can go home and rest good. – less
Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee), London, ENG – February 8, 2014
Pros: free food, great colleagues, tips for everyone
Cons: unreliability of next pay
this job was a really fun place to work, with the daily tasks needing to be done everyone shared the work equally, there was lots of laughter. the only downside was the unreliability of the pay where you didn't know when you would be getting your next wages. the best part of this job was the tips being split equally between everyone at the end of each – more... day. – less
Productive work, with challenges i looked forward to.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bronson, FL – December 18, 2013
Pros: free drinks!
Cons: unpleasant customers
Dealing with different sorts of customers throughout my shift really brings to attention how much i love being around people in general. You learn so many different things on how to stock and ring up customers in-between, and really learning to manage ones time in-between customers,cleaning,and stocking the coolers/products. With the employees I work – more... with, all have different attributes on how things should be cleaned or stocked. I take those attributes and make them my own. The hardest part of the day would be mid-afternoon to late evenings on certain days. I say that, because depending on which lotto is playing that night determines whether or not we'd be super busy. I enjoy this job because you get to see the same faces everyday to the point where you can remember ones order! And also because you make new friends, I know i have. – less

Catering Assistant (Former Employee), Bridgend, WLS – November 26, 2013
Pros: free lunch and beverages through out the day
Cons: long hours on your feet.
My day in work would start by preparing the café for opening with a co worker. Cooking the bacon and sausages and other breakfast items to be kept warm in the bane marie. The tables and chairs would be placed outside and the café would be opened. My colleague would be in the kitchen preparing the meals that have been ordered and I would be front of – more... house taking orders and taking payment for meals and beverages ordered. I would take beverages and food orders to the tables and ensure that tables and condiments were kept well stocked and clean. I got on very well with all of my co- workers and I am still in contact with the manager. I enjoyed meeting new people and the hardest part of the job was the long hours that I worked e.g. I worked 8am till 5pm. As you are on your feet for a long time and they get tired, also there was a period in the afternoon when it would be very quiet. I enjoyed working at the café as all the staff were so friendly and everyone got on with each other. – less
