I don't shop at Foodland. The only thing I have ever purchased there were the ICF chicken breasts. I do however venture into their store on occassion and grab an ad and see what, if anything, is worth my attention. I don't really care for the non cleanliness of the store and I wouldn't dare EVER buy anything from their deli. If it looks dirty on the outside, can you imagine what the preparation area looks like? Yuck!

My neighbor came over this evening because she locked herself out of the house. She just so happens to work at this particular Foodland and I have seen her there a couple of times.

I had a question for her. I had heard a rumor that Foodland doubles coupons $0.55 and under. She confirmed this but also proceeded to tell me why she wishes she could find another job.

She told me that Tuesday is senior discount day (10%). She said a majority of the cashiers will ring up your total, tell you the amount and after they collect your money, hit the senoir discount button. Ofcourse pocketing their tidy little profit. She told me one girl (her name was NIKKI) had the audacity to brag about loving Tuesdays and she even pocketed $400 once.

She also told me that sometimes the cashiers will add a little extra "cash back" when people do electronic checks. Again, pocketing the money.

She even told me that sometimes one of the managers will do a cash pull, pocket some of the money and just edit the register so it doesn't come up short.

Some people are outright oxygen thieves! Ofcourse it isn't right to rip off the company you work for but whatever. Stealing from innocent parties is a whole other ball game. Those little old ladies shop in that skank store on Tuesdays specifically thinking they received a discount, when what they really got was a swift kick in the butt and no one is the wiser unless they pay close attention.

I am so disgusted I am beyond words.

First of all this is right out funny! Senior Discount for one thing is only 5% not 10%! One a large order the amount of a senior discount would only be around $2.oo do you really think in a 4 hour shift you could make 400.00...that is just plain silly! Plus the employee mentioned doesn't even check out customers, she is not a cashier!!!!
The health dept. makes random stops and never once has the deli ever failed a inspection.
I find it funny that we had an employee that was causing alot of trouble, writing letters and making phone calls that were researched by the company and none of the complaints were found true. this person however had an issue with the above mentioned employees..... and if you live in ky and your neighbor came over, we don't have an employee that lives in flatwoods ky!
Our store doesn't even do electronic checks so that is just a plain lie on your behalf!!!! Plus the manager stealing money...you can't physically change our computer system what money is tracked is there...no changing can be done. If they did steal money it would come up short on that till....come on people do you really think that a company of this size would have a system like they did back when you hand rang groceries!!!!
I'm not saying that any place of work is perfect, I'm sure every one has faults.
But if you want to write a blog and complain then make sure your facts are of your own and the truth. Because by saying things that we don't even do, we do wrong makes you look like a complete ass!!!!
You are messing with the lively hoods of every employee that works here, from the stock crew to the carryouts upfront. You think that writing things to close down the store or get people to stop shopping here will make you and your neighbor who works here happy, what would happen to the community if this store no long exisiting...Just stop and think how many people would lose thier jobs. Do you really want to hurt all of those people because you dislike one or two that work here!

I also work at this store and I find these statements to be absurd. If you do not know what you are talking about then keep your mouth shut. I do admit however that we do have faults as does every store and establishment. Westmoreland Foodland is a good place to work for those who follow the rules and do as they are supposed to do.We are a family here and try to serve the community, and truthfully this store is the lively hood for so many people and their families.
Whomever has the problems with this establishment should handle it in other ways other than blogging about untruths. I mean really how mature.

@ think first

Foodland employee deserves to be treated with more respect, and a little compassion wouldn't hurt either. To treat him with such crude distain is rather unlady like on your part. Do you always resort to name calling and profanity to brow beat others on public forums?

I only shop at Foodland if I am in the mood to have gnats and flies in my food considering they are swarming everywhere cause they won't replace the AC unit.

I used to shop foodland until the deli tried to serve flies on my ham. The workers are always frowning and in a bad mood. NASTY NASTY place. I think they charge extra for the flies and gnats!!!

i dont even live near that store but the things said on here are ridiculous. I worked at Jolly Pirate and we used the same glaze too. All doughnut places do until its gone and then they refill the well with more glaze. theres nothing wrong with that at all and thats the only way any doughnut maker does it in the whole world. Bull Butter, go get a job and you wont make statements like that one because you will know better. btw the glaze doesnt even touch the doughnut anyway dumbass

DUMABSS..How does the glaze get on the doughnuts if it isn't touching it..You are 3 brains cells past retarded with that statement.I have seen how they make those doughnuts..No gloves,they just scoop up a handful of glaze and drizzle it barehanded on the doughnuts.The glazed that lays on the table is then barehanded scooped up and put back in the bucket
