    Pros

    Good starting pay, $14.51 per hour in call center.
    good benefits
    free food from time to time
    free beverages everyday

    Cons

    Managers dont all follow same rules
    What your told in training doesnt apply to the floor
    Punishing current employees for actions of past is unfair
    Should not be marked down for weather related issues
    Safety an issue in parking lot without cameras or and poor lighting.
    HR dept horrible. Everyone passes the buck to everyone else. No one held accountable. Vacation days never given in time. Millions of excuses. That dept needs to all be replaced.
    Consider something besides just senority for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone needs to be on same page whether you agree or not, its not your company.

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible which is a great thing for a college student. There are shops in the morning and in the late afternoon as well. Also, you get to work with a lot of other people at once which may be a good thing if you're a social person. Most of the other workers I was with were very nice.

    Cons

    It is essentially minimum wage with very little upgrades in pay over time. Also, the work is very tedious and you are constantly on your feet and being pressured to reach certain goal times.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and give better rewards for those who are considered top shoppers.

    Management issues and long shifts at times.Some employees who kissed up got better treatment and the ones who worked hard basically got nothing. Last night shift all had to stay and clean black mold from the back of the dairy cases.

    Pros

    Pay on time, consistent schedule, professional.

    Cons

    Demanding management, complain too much, don't take upward mobility or internal job applications seriously.

    Advice to Management

    At the Chicago crossdock, stop micro-managing so much. Being a loader or driver takes common sense. We don't need you looking at us on the security camera every four seconds while you sit in the office and play with spreadsheets or facebook. Plenty of loaders wanted to be drivers, so they could actually make a living, but you would host job fairs looking for new drivers, how much sense does that make? Promote internally, pay better, and stop placing idiots in middle management roles.
