It is a job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Basic retail/service sort of job. If you like an active job that almost always has something for you to do with varied tasks, it is quite good. Yes, for this type of job it is a good place. The workers are typically nice and good to work with, personality-wise. There is an understanding atmosphere whether or not you "fit in". They are willing to switch shifts. Management is understanding with requesting days off for doctor appointments or other things, as long as your request before the schedule is made. Schedules are typically out Monday for the next week (unless there is a holiday, then maybe 2-3 weeks advance), so there is not much notice of when you work and it will be difficult juggling another job with inconsistent days."Customer-focused" is extreme here. Cleaning (filthy) machines so that someone's turkey isn't covered in roast beef goop does not count as a customer-focused activity. Similar things that are definitely for the customers' benefit also don't count: filling the self-serve cooler, sanitizing the things a hundred customers have touched, putting meats away so they dont gather bacteria, etc. The only customer focus is at the counter helping customers. Personally, I prefer holistic customer service, not this shallow sort of approach, but this is how it is.Scheduling is random, even for full timers. No set days off and no set shift. Full time DOES get 40 hours, however. Part time might get shafted working the minimum allowed per week, but it really depends on your availability; if your schedule is open, you will probably get more hours.There is onsite - 

Pros

free mediocre coffee(+milk+sugar if you want), 1 free cheap fruit for every break, nice coworkers, decent management, variable tasks, active

Cons

favouritism, hierarchy based on employment length not aptitude, no shift assignment, no growth potential

East job, horrible management

Coworkers are fun and nice & it’s an easy job being a cashier. but the management is god awful in all departments of the store. pay is horrible & you never get a raise. managers are always on a power trip and treat employees horribly. same with the owners. made amazing friends with my coworkers, but wouldn’t recommend working there unless you want to cry in the bathroom everyday & then get yelled at for being in the bathroom too long

Pros

free lunch for special occasions

Cons

everything else

Great bosses, stellar environment

If you like quality products and good people, you'll enjoy this job. Managers tend to accommodate sensitive schedules pretty fairly. The work is also very straighforward in most cases. Go for it!

Don't work here

Management is a joke. Hours based on how much your manager likes you. No time for life outside of work. Very gossipy even at management level. Very stressful work environment.

Pros

Free fruit on breaks

Cons

Very dramatic place to work

The most enjoyable part of the job is the costumers

The job is pretty easy and steady costumers are easily understandable. Hours are reasonable and they try to work with your every day life. The employees are easy to get along with

Toxic work place!

A typical day included packing product, stocking shelves running back and forth from the freezers that are behind the store and unloading trucks. Management is awful! If your a good worker they will keep adding more and more work till you break, if your a lazy worker they will praise you and let you get away with doing nothing. Managers talk badly about the employees and other managers to anyone who will listen, this includes the store managers (not just in the bakery) they like to threaten to take your breaks away and use intimidation to get their way. If you ask for time off they will deny it and then let someone they like have that day off instead.

Pros

Free coffee, that is beyond weak

Cons

Awful management, toxic behaviour

fast paced/ busy place to work

A lot of great co workers but some bullies. environment can be draining, employees aren't aloud to listen to music in their departments and the salad bar department is also often so busy/ crowded that its a safety hazard. ignorant customers and your expected by management to worship them.

Pleasant grocery store

The management is strict. Just your standard deli. Nothing bad nothing special. The floor of the deli is concrete so it hurts your feet pretty bad after an 8 hr shift. The staff is friendly and fun to work with. Always a good mix of students and older people working.

Pros

free coffee

Remark Fresh Markets

My overall experience at Remark Fresh Markets was a good one, if I hadn't had to move I'd still be employed there. A typical day at work I'd work an 8-10 hour cashier shift. I learned that working costumer service is a lot harder than it looks, being kind all the time is something that is a must - the costumer is always right. The management team was phenomenal, the job security was amazing. The co-workers were always kind and enjoyable to be around.

Pros

people

Cons

when busy breaks are taken from you

busy and cute place to work

Fast passed with lots of different jobs to do. Working in the back and out on the floor with customers was nice. Free lunch on holiday weekends due to appreciation of working hard.
