Cashier (Former Employee), Burlington, NC – June 29, 2012
Pros: free fountain drinks
Cons: too many to list, see review above
I started this position under the pretense I would be trained for assistant management within 3 months. At about 7 months I started to get a bit concerned. I spoke with my fellow employee (working ther for 5+ years) and was told he'd been being baited by the same routine for years. I also found the current assistant manager garnishing my hours for his – more... own benefit and time schedule. After multiple complaints about prior/post shifts not doing their most basic work duties I found the manager of the location didn't instill ANY discipline in her employee's at all. The work remained undone leaving it for me to clean (as always). When I approached the manager about these infractions it was met with a cavalier attitude and resulted in fake "complaints" (that were never brought to my attention up to that moment). This place is the living definition of a "horrible job," stay away guys! The $8 an hour ISN'T WORTH IT. – less
Food Service Manager (Former Employee), Little River, SC – June 4, 2012
Pros: i did get some managerial training. vacation/ho;iday pay
Cons: no food discounts, insurance no good, long hours
In the short time that I was there I noticed that I was not the only manager/employee who was stressed, underpaid, and under trained. This company seems to throw people in their job positions, sink or swim. The support that I did get was from my former co-workers. I my self just feel that I was set up for failure. I just hope and prey that I am fortunate – more... enough to find another company who is willing to work with me to get the proper training that I need to succeed in my job field. When I do find that company, I plan on sticking with them for a long time. – less
Store Sales Manager (Former Employee), Orange Heights, FL – May 30, 2012
Count money and balance, do deposits as well as daily paperwork and upload to home office. View emails for anything important. Enter comp pricing on gas as well as any other items that need to be entered. Scheduling, make sure that the shifts were covered and make adjustments as needed. Greet guest and total there sales at the same time up sale any – more... additional items (item of the day). Temp logs and any daily logs that need to be done. Order all items of the store. Front and face the entire store. Check all items in store for dates. Answer the phone whenever it rings. :) I had a crew of 7-9 employees that I had to manage and motivate. I attended meetings and also held meetings. Had to do inventory on a weekly bases for some items as well as monthly inventory. I am sure that there are a few things like, doing minor repairs and sending work orders in, that I have forgot to put on here, as anyone knows in management you are a jack of all trades and a master of none. The most important thing I learned at this job was to guide teach and develop your crew to insure you have the best there when you are not there. – less
Company demonstrated bias to men. Management was uneducated.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Irmo, SC – May 24, 2012
Pros: free soda and really old hotdogs.
Cons: upper management was without good sense.
Loads of customer service and inconsistent scheduling of my hours was a weight-loss program, so who needs they gym? Typically there were so many customers and only 1 employee to service them at the register, stock the cooler, clean the bathrooms, work the electronic equipment to process company credit cards for gas deliveries and for large purchases, – more... and also keep track of the coffee and other foods...I'm tired just remembering it all. Couple this with no benefits, because they were not affordable and it is an excerp from the book, "Nickled and Dimed". To top if off, all of the male management favored the male employees and expected the women to do ALL the cleaning, as though it is a woman's place to clean. I was offered an Asst Mgmt position because I cleaned. That was expected of me, while the male workers below me did no cleaning whatsoever. Just as I left this company, the manager who hired me was arrested for stealing one of her own bank deposits. She had accused many employees of theft along the way. Makes you wonder... – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Ormond Beach, Florida 32176 – April 29, 2012
Pros: subway gave you discount on lunch.
Cons: no breaks, you ate in between customers and store duties.
Waiting on customers, pumping gas for older customers, cleaning and stocking of store. I learned to work hard and fast, smile no matter how your day is going. My co-workers where helpful, always ready to help when you when you needed it. I think the hardest part of this job was staying awake till 6am. The most enjoyable part of this job is that I made – more... a lot of friends that became my regular customers. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Middleburg, FL – April 25, 2012
The Pantry claims to have honesty as one of their main values that they stand for. They hire a manager that has done nothing but lie his way into his position, and when called on it, my hours were cut to nothing. Trying to get in touch with someone in corporate office was just a joke. I was promised a return phone call about 3 months ago. They are NOT – more... an honest company to work for. – less
