The managers were the worst they follow you around like your about to steal stuff from them. The workers are all young which could be a good thing if they put some more training into them you don’t even get any discounts.

Everyday was different and there were always new things to learn.
The staff, management, and customers were fun to work with.

There was much trust among everyone working there and people took their duties seriously.

There is a great of balance between stress and little stress.

Management is great and the team is made up of awesome people who for the most part are very friendly and kind and accepting. Pay is okay, not always enough shifts given.

I worked only as a cashier and processed cash, credit, debit card transactions, dealt with price matching and coupons. Maintaining a clean and orderly cash area. While also being happy to help customers find what they were looking for in the store and bagging items after their purchases.

FreshCo was the first place I've ever worked at. The environment is very relaxed and all the employees were extremely friendly and accepting. They helped me every step of the way.

I was offered a job at FreshCo to work in the Meat Aisle, much of which included merchandising related tasks and facing, aswell as applying stickers for prices and had I worked more, I would've also been filling lists and working in a back area.

Unfortunately, I was only given one four-hour shift, and at the end I was told when my next shift would be. This shift was in November 2014. Fast forward to April 2015, and I still hadn't been given another shift again despite repeated calling asking when my next shift would be. Eventually after getting a new job, I decided to just resign from that point.


I could never experience the job properly, so I couldn't recommend this.

Good place to start your courier. Helpful staff and encouraging environment. Proper work is explained in the beginning. Different departments deal with different products.

FreshCo is a stable job and as long as you're doing your work you will be fine. In saying that the work required from you is quite easy and isn't taxing at all.

Management is prejudice and racist against good workers. Owner becomes so shallow to the point that he hired lots of Colored workers after being accused of being racist after firing all of the black employees.

Since this is a grocery store, employees will always have difficult customers to deal with and tasks that seem to be more than what you are being paid for. However, you will work with people that you will never forget and you will come into work dealing with stressful situations with people whom you have a good and supportive relationship with.
