Ya know, when I go to my local grocery store chain I expect that everyone working there, no matter thier position or age, be professional. Which brings me to a few issues I have experienced with my local Piggly Wiggly. I think it's great that you hire teens, young adults, etc., but I expect them to keep their personal business just that, personal and private. I don't care who they slept with with nor do I care who their frieds or frenemies slept with over the weekend. I don't want to watch the cashier and bag boy make googly eyes or flirt while I'm at the register. And, I don't care to see shirts that imply strange shit goes on their when I'm not around. "What happens at the Pig stays at the Pig" T's don't belong in a grocery store! Don't get me wrong, the shirts are cute but this is a grocery store, not Vegas. These issues just make me wonder what management is doing!?!

I've noticed this same thing myself. I am all for the young people working but some of the young cashiers and workers have been there for years and are still acting the same as when they were teens, Maybe they need to consider hiring some mature adults that can provide a higher level of service.

I agree with both of you. I find it to be very rude for the cashiers to carry on a conversation with another cashier or the bag boy while my pruchases are being scanned and totaled. I too do not care about "their weekends" or whatever!!!!!!

The sad thing is, they're not being prepped for a real work environment(adulthood). Maybe they're not acting any better because they're not being taught or required to act any better. I just think if you go to work you should act professional, any prefession!

Instead of getting on here and telling everyone about how you hate to hear this about some young person life, I suggest that you speak to the owner. I am sure he would like to know and would take care of it.

I like the shirt and I would love to be young again and beable to share what my weekend was like. You are only young once. Be happy and quite complaining. Remember they are just kids and some still in high school and some at Chipola. I think it is great that the management of the Pig employs them and they are willing to work.

HCV - That is the point of a forum, to let people know things that are of concern or interest - in general. And it should be very obvious to the owner.

Local - Just because others are doing it, doesn't make it tolerable!

June bug - Wouldn't we all love to be young again, but we're not and can't be. Plus, getting a job is just one more step towards adulthood. If you seen a 40 year old wearing it, would it be as acceptable or cute? It's a grocery store - not the mall or a hut on the beach..Time and Place. Plus most of those kids have less than desirable work ethics from my experience at the store.

They should focus on their jobs.

It is evident to me that these kids have not caused any harm to the Pigs business. Everytime I go by the Pig the parking lot has cars in it. If you don't want to listen then go some place else to shop. If I was one these kids I wouldn't want to look at you sour puss face anyway. I have been in the pig and heard the kids talking about what they are going, what they going to do and I could care less. They are teenagers get over it. Those of you complaining are just jealous that they are getting to do more than you did as a teenager.

Chuck Dockery does not put up with crap like that at the IGA/Docs Market. They look and act professional and keep that place clean. The Pig is always dirty now.

Some of them haven't graduated from high school and are not professionals.

"A professional is a member of a vocation founded upon specialized educational training.
The word professional traditionally means a person who has obtained a degree in a professional field. The term commonly describes highly educated, mostly salaried workers, who enjoy considerable work autonomy, a comfortable salary, and are commonly engaged in creative and intellectually challenging work. Because of the personal and confidential nature of many professional services and thus the necessity to place a great deal of trust in them, most professionals are held up to strict ethical and moral regulations."

Even real professionals do not wear neckties, suits etc. get over it. By the way I hear quite a bit of teenage gossip from IGA.

Been in the Pig a thousand times, never saw or heard anything bad from any of those young folks. I'm thankful to Don H. for working so many of our youth. They do a great job, if your concerned about what they are waring you should get a life of your own.

Chuck Dockery has plenty of high schoolers working for him and they dont slack. More than just what they talk it is the way they keep things put up and clean in the store that makes me shop there.

Obviously, some of the posting participants here should go back to school or just take more pride when addressing posts. Also, Professionalism means to have a specific style of behavior in the workplace. I have seen many employees there do a great job but what happens on the weekend should stay there! Those shirts could not or would not ever be approved or supplied by corporate.

Both IGA and Pig parking lots should be full considering that town only has 2 grocery stores..LOL

I see those a lot when I have to shop there. The employees should smile and greet customer better. Looks like HCV had a crappy childhood and is living through others. Shame Shame.

Take your whining ass to Wal-Mart and wait in line to buy your groceries. I make a habit to NOT return to a business if I don't like it. If I have a bad meal at a restaurant, I don't get on the internet and whine like a bitch about it. I just won't go back. The same applies for grocery stores. Try it out. It works great!
