Grocery Clerk

May 2014 • Hudson, MA

What I liked

I liked how Market Basket pushed fundamental aspects of your character. They pushed for hard work, being creative, and pushing perfection standards without the worry of intense repercussions if 100% perfection is not met.

What I wish was different

I wish I had slightly more leeway with bringing my own creative ideas into the company, and slightly more of a say in decisions.

Advice

How important it is to work well together and to know that working by yourself isn't always the most productive, but there are times when isolation can be good.
