Where is the culture?

I started with the company part time as I worked my way through college. The culture was never ideal, but it was certainly better than what we have now. Not to mention, morale is nothing to brag about. The sad thing is we have management that... —  read more

Do it

We SHOULD shut down the hot/salad bar during this crisis. Prepacked foods only from prepared foods and bakery. I can't believe our company is moving so slow to make this decision.


Our store has been out of nestle purelife, now all water is gone. We were out of paper both towels and toilet paper for 2 days until the truck finally showed yesterday. It's so bad our store had to limit sales of water, paper and hand sanitizer.

Get out of there

Next round is in October '20. So get ready for it. After that they will got rid of certain department mngs. That is why they are working on paying MODs 50 cents more.
