Re: “Killer Burger Kills It

Either way, the truth always kicks ass, nothing but! There you have it. Go see for yourself. Don't come telling that you weren't warned about it. o&o

Re: “Killer Burger Kills It

Not intended to hurt their business but my experience there sucked! It took a long time to get a burger, it was overcooked, the cheese tasted like plastic and the fries were cooked in dark oil and overcooked. The beer was warm as well and the glass was not a frozen mug. I really don't care about the price as much as I care about service and quality. I will never go back there. It just did not meet my standards of what is good, let alone healthy.

Now, that I read what goes in hamburger meat, I will grind my own and cook my on. Period!

To be 100% honest with you, I think that Red Robin burgers kick their ass. I am not into destroying a burger flavor with peanut butter or other ridiculous toppings. It destroys the flavor and becomes something else instead of enhancing the basics.

Good luck to them in their business, but there is no way in hell I could consider their burgers anything but just another attempt to add weirdness to something that is good to start with which is a standard burger. Sorry, try harder, way harder.

Re: “Culture Change

Furthermore and based on my observation a couple of posts below:

"I would love to hear from an NSM employee to tell us how often they remove all vegetables and do a serious clean up and sanitize those areas and how often they get checked by an outside agency. The same goes for other stores."

I would like you New Seasons Market employee or the organization for that matter to tell us, what type of chemicals do they use if they ever sanitize 100% their produce and food displays.

Why do I ask this? Because there will be chemical residues left in the display that will leak to the food. Don't think so? Wanna hire a lab to do the research plus a few sworn testimonies from employees? Ops, forget it, they are scared now. They are afraid of losing their jobs. The corporate boot is stepping on too hard on them already.

OMG, I let one cat out of the bag. There it goes, catch it, catch it or the crap will hit the fan!!!!!!!!!!

;)

Re: “Culture Change

Ohnos is funny.

New Seasons Market wants to make a profit. If you don't make a profit charging a 1,000% of an item's cost and dummies buy it, YOU SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “Culture Change

Okay, enough of the facade. First, let's examine "enforcement" of "organic". How many people in the country are in charge of that?

"The National Organic Program grew from fewer than twelve total employees in 2008 to approximately thirty in 2010. As of April 2011, it operates in three divisions: Standards, Accreditation and International Activities (AIA), and Compliance and Enforcement."

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Orga…

Do you really think that you are buying organic food at New Seasons Markets or any other market with that claim? I say you are getting organic food for an outrageous price only based on the honesty of the producer, nothing else because it is not enforced in the country or the world for that matter. How in the world 30 people can cover the whole United States? How? What about internationally when in the off season?

Secondly, About New Seasons Markets and their produce displays. I would like you to go to a produce display and lift the vegetables in there and see what you find. A "planet" of bugs, microbes, bacteria, etc. They are never cleaned up, disinfected especially in around the clock stores. So buyer be aware!

If you are eating those vegetables raw, be careful.

That is the truth people and the same with the other food displays. Hygiene, handling, storage, displays are issues of concern.

I would love to hear from an NSM employee to tell us how often they remove all vegetables and do a serious clean up and sanitize those areas and how often they get checked by an outside agency. The same goes for other stores.

Common sense will tell you to cook your veggies, meats, fish, etc very well so you don't get sick. Concerning the veggies you would lose most of the gains nutrition wise.

Now, do you know the percentage of male customers on a New Seasons Store? Very low, mostly women, Why is that? Because women are scared shitless with cancer and these marketeers have found their holy grail by preying on women's fears.

Cancer is a combination of a hell of a lot of factors. You think that you improve your chances with organic veggies but since you live surrounded by pollution and transmitted diseases, you are better saving those dollars you are throwing away at news seasons and invest in a place where you can grow and have 100% or near it control of your food intake if that is worth to you, but do not rely on this scam to feel better because healthier you will be not! You just bite line, sinker and hook like the rest of fad crowd.

Sorry Ryan, But I think that the best thing that happened to you was to not be at New Seasons anymore. You will see down the road that this shake up forced you to aim higher, have more pride and you will learn to never beg for a lousy job back. Your kids are small now and they would be more proud of their dad if he fought for a way better job that a near minimum wage job leading to no where but the same old. Those friends you have or had at New Seasons are not your friends. You will see in time who will give the shirt of their back for you. They are psychologically intimidated by your firing and that is the whole purpose of the exercise. To intimidate and bring the workforce back in line according to corporate mandates.

That is how it works! BE happy that this happened now and not when you are old and nobody would hire you because these pricks really discriminate with age, gender and color. They don't do it openly but if you look at the average age, gender and color of the New Seasons Market employee demographics, you will understand what I am talking about...

Maybe you should quit that minimum wage slave labor gig and get smart by moving up the latter so you can afford to bitch and moan about the current state of the country instead of hitting your 12 pack or a bottle of wine and call it the day.

Yes, I care about the people that were shot or are victimized violently. I also consider the millions of people in America today that are economically victimized by no jobs or low wages so they can never get ahead. Have you ever wondered why education is so expensive and not affordable to everybody. Hint, the system can not sustain itself without low wage grunts the way it is designed. Return on investment is mandatory or else. It is so F up that jailing people is a business, a private business contracted out by the states.

People are shot because our society is sick. It is out of control. The crave for drugs, alcohol and violence is so generalized that we have lost our north. Add to that the culture of violence accentuated by war and violent video games that kids and young adult become experts about.

We are sick as a nation dude. Get a clue and my best advice is that to not become a bulls eye for some sick idiot somewhere.

We are going down just like Rome and you have better smell the coffee. Kids are shot at their school regularly now and you wonder why adult or near adult psychos are not doing that on the streets?

Wake up!

Re: “Culture Change

Oh I forgot Kristine. That letter New Seasons sent you is completely condescending. Read between the lines. They are telling you in a deceitful way a big F U and in writing! Double talk, you know what I mean, don't you?

The more I hear about this store and their ways the more disgusted I get. Hell will freeze before I go to that place.

Good riddance! Eventually they will go bankrupt anyway. Those prices are not sustainable for the America we have today, unless they go to some rich neighborhood. The scam is out for everyone to see, at least the progressive bunch that is well read and knows better.
