Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Coworkers were nice. But it's a boring and repetitive job. Beside one 15-min paid break, there were no other benefits. And I had to stand for the whole time and it was very busy.

Pros

Salary to pay the bills

Cons

No benefits, long hours of standing, super busy, no career advancement

Decent place but terrible management and higher-ups

Worked as a bakery clerk, due to bakery hours being short, you work from open to close. Job wasn’t too hard, but fast-paced especially with packing supplier pastries. Co-workers in the same department are nice except the suppliers, they are extremely judgey and watch on how you bring back the supplier stuff back. My location didn’t like my availability changes especially when I told them that my availability would change twice in the summer, thus being fired due to my availability. Big tip, if the management isn’t setting up your sign in within 2 weeks, they’re not keeping you.

If Superstore was set in China and ran by women

This place reeks of favouritism. Management has a problem creative a toxic work environment for their employees, a lot of politics are present. There is little to no progression within because the hierarchy is run by people kissing up to each other. The only positive notes are that customers are generally very friendly, and the owner responds well to availability changes and wage “increases”. Would not recommend working here unless it’s a stepping stone to something better.As the last reviewer mentioned, it does feel more like a high school than a job. Anyone who unironically peaks at retail isn't worth the time nor brain power.

Pros

Easygoing customers, flexible shifts, consistent raises

Cons

Long hours, short breaks, toxic work culture
Was this review helpful?

Fast paced environment, job was often stressful and long hours.

During my time there, it felt more like a high school than a job. If the manager did not like you as a cashier, you would be stuck at the last belt next to the exit-- during the winter time, you would perpetually get sick due to the doors opening on you with -30 weather. Pay was low as well, in my over three years of working there, I only received a 25 cent wage increase. Its a good place to work if you need work, they will always have the hours, but if you have an opportunity to leave for a job with equal pay, I highly suggest you do so.

Pros

as many hours as you want

Cons

terrible management, low wages, snobbery.

Awful experience

Bullies and egomaniacs with no respect stressing about trivial things, unprofessional, mean spirited staff. My advice is to keep looking, this job is an absolute last resort.

None

Met new people.

Need to hire qualified managers! As they do not know to manage or train new employees.. if your not Asian you will be treated differently.. this is just extra money not career.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Long hours

1st yr they opened great

when the first opened great place. within the second year unfortunately there was a lot of racism and discrimination. As this SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. no one should EVER be discriminated base on there culture and skin color.!!!

Pay some bills

Show up, do your job and get the money. Poor (micromanagement) for some issues. However inexistent management for other tasks and procedures: do it by yourself, do not make overtime and get it done

Great place to work!

Very collaborative environment and enjoyed working for their company. Payroll was on time and very accurate, co workers were very commutative and nice.

Good Place to start for students.

Hours and pay are good for students. Good place to get experience but not a place to stay for long. Other reviews are wrong about management. Management is fine, just the CEO are very toxic, don't do anything, just comes yell at us on his way out for a smoke break.

Unfair

Pretty unfair , aren’t reasonable people , worked as a deli worker and it’s kinda sad. Making us vacuum seal old smoked beef. Literally inedible, when it came to management it was terrible . They want studf done when there is literally Nothing else to do. If you’re a student I Wouldn’t recommend working here. As taking days off can lead you to being terminated unfairly . They don’t care about you. Kinda sad.

Pros

Decent hours

Cons

You do more then you get paid

Horrible place

Terrible place to work. You get treated like dirt and are expected to work 6 days a week and 12 hours a day. You get put down the manager mostly so not speak English and the place is dirty

Easy job

The work is super easy, the cleaning crew is very friendly and easy to get along with. Some of the cashiers are nice but majority of the managers are not nice, they don't treat you like you matter, you are just there to clean.

Pros

Very easy

Cons

Managers treat you like your beneath them

Busy workplace

If you're looking for something high paced, Nations is the place for you. It is a very busy store with plenty to be done. There is a lot of interaction with customers.

Not recommended

I met a lot of nice people of different race in this place but some supervisors are mean and lazy. It’s a good place to do part-time but a lot of people quit this place after a while and nobody last in this place mostly because of the salary or the people managing the place.
