    I worked at Peapod full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was great seeing that you needed no specialized skills to do the job.
    You weren't constantly micromanaged
    The company cared about its drivers

    Cons

    Getting time off as a driver was difficult. (blackout dates, limited time off)
    Mistakes led to termination.
    Driver turnover was high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improving the PTO procedures would make drivers more comfortable.
    Being more transparent at the lower management level.

    I have been working at Peapod

    Pros

    Very casual and friendly atmosphere
    All employees are talented
    Ideas and free thinking encouraged
    Managers and execs genuinely care about employees.
    Really big on promoting from within

    Cons

    Benefits have been a bit of a roller coaster ride and the cost goes up significantly every year. It pretty much feels like your annual merit increase is lost on the increasing cost of health insurance.

    I worked at Peapod

    Pros

    Fun, cool company to work for! I worked at both a distribution center and at the corporate offices in Skokie. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone really gets along well. The company culture is great and the business model is awesome.

    Cons

    Pay scale was less than it should be for a company backed by a huge conglomerate; this was my only gripe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I felt that the senior management did a great job. There were a few vice presidents I worked under during my tenure that needed to go and eventually senior management saw this and they were were let go. I left only because I did not feel I was being paid highly enough for the education and experience I had.
