iga has went to the dog's. that store has the sorriest bunch of employees i've ever seen. i guess it's poor management. get to work woody....those women on the night shift in the deli act like pure ho's. and the "carry out" boys, yea right. all they do is stand there and try to get a piece from the cashiers. i've never in my life seen so many horny little boys in one place at one time in my life. pure ho and john house instead of grocery store!!!

Well I go there sometimes when I return home to visit family. I have to agree. The young employees are somthing not to be desired. Rude and have the personalities of drift wood. I makes one wonder, just what are the parents teaching their kids in the means of manners and the respect for their jobs and the customer. Don't think I wouldn't and haven't called them on their lack of decorum and etc. If I had ever acted as such , at my job and my family found out I would have been taken to the woodshed for sure. I mean come on have respect for yourself ya children . That is what I call them no matter how old they are. Cause that is how they are acting , like unkept , manner lacking children.

It would be much easier to take these comments seriously if any of them were spelled correctly or, at the very least, showed an understanding of the basic rules of grammar.

Most of these "kids" have been friends for years. They've grown up together, went to school together, and they like each other. A boy having a conversation with a female friend is not the same as a boy trying to "get a piece."

Anyone who has worked in the service industry, who has stood on their feet for eight hours a day, taking uncalled for abuse with a smile plastered on their face, will understand the occasional need to vent. I will agree it's not appropriate to do so at work, but we are only human. Shocking, I know.

One more thing--the phrase "the customer is always right" is not a law. It was coined by Harry Gordon Selfridge, the founder of Selfridge’s department store in London in 1909 as an advertising campaign. That's London, ENGLAND, by the way.

Yes, you are entitled to good service. But by the same token, employees are entitled to be treated like human beings instead of serfs.

why do you have to put everything and everyone down where is the positive is clay county are you so perfect that you never make mistakes. I sure would like to see you if you are. I bet if Christ himself were to write does anyone know God someone would say He had some kind of sexual disease.I would about lay money down on it. The young kids working there most have just started the work force and needs guidance but no you just put them down come on say something positive it doesn't hurt. I bet if they weren't work you would put them down for being on the draw as you often are heard taking about someone yet again Give them a break and MAYBE someone could give you a break when you are trying. Please if you can't be positive don't put nothing please.

So because they have stood on their feet for eight hours that gives them a right to make fun of people and act like they have something stuck up their a$$ if that jobs to hard for them they need a different job where they do not have to deal with the public and by the way nobody said the customer's always right was a law it was a figure of speech.

Don't mistakingly pin this on any of the managers. I am not a manager. I have no right to supervise any employee.

Again, I am not the boss, but I agree with you completely on this. I am a smoker myself, and I still think it is the height of rudeness to smoke inside any public business. There are always infants and children in there with their parents, and you never know who is allergic to smoke. I would LOVE to be able to tell people smoking is not permitted, but I am not allowed to do so. I would be considered a rude employee, and the customer in question would probably demand I be fired.

As for your other complaints, bring them up to the manager. Some of them are quite valid. I agree, "cart races" could endanger someone, as could playing catch. They're just kids, they need to learn somehow.

And I do not turn my back on customers unless it is to ask a question of another cashier or a manager.

And to the person who said they had to yell in order to be heard, I'm sorry, but it is a noisy store. There are constant beeps from the registers, the overhead music, conversation between customers and between employees, carts being brought in and taken out, etc... It is hard for anyone to hear perfectly in such a situation. It is worse for me since I am hard of hearing in the first place.

Okay, just for you. There are some customers that we all LOVE to see come in. They are the ones who are polite, funny, caring, and patient.

The elderly gentleman who has given every employee in the store a little handmade cross made of cedar.

The elderly women who are so sweet and get nervous when writing a check because they think the cashier will get impatient with them for being slow--they can stand there all day if they want to and I'll never tell them to hurry up.

The frazzled mothers who have to divide their attention between shopping and supervising their children.

The regulars who smile at us, who ask how we're doing.

The people who have been in our place, who understand that sometimes mistakes happen.

The little kids who reach over the counter to hand me a grubby dollar for a candy bar, so proud that they paid for something with their own money.

Your store is an unpleasant place to shop. At least in the evening it is unpleasant.
You allow customers to wander the store with lit cigarettes.
Your 'bag boys' have cart races and play catch in the front of the store.
I have had to dodge the buffer since there is no way that the operator would ever back down from a lowly customer.
I cannot remember the last time that one of your cashiers did not turn their back to me as I approached the register.
In closing, I'd rather shop at the smelly Save a Lot than go near the IGA after 5pm.
Take your foodstamps somewhere else then and shut that gossipy pie hole of yours. I say good riddens and dont let the door hit ya on the way out.
