Raley's treatment of their employees has gone down hill. Less pay and more work load.

Main Office Worker (Former Employee)
West Sacramento, CA

I worked at Raley's full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAs a long time employee, I have seen the pros evaporated. If someone is just starting out today, they may not see the way things were and think that employment is OK ("The new norm"). Although, it seems that today's job environment in general is eroding away all that was good leaving the middle class barely scraping by.

ConsAs a main office employee, there was little job security.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey are just doing what it takes to get the maximum profit possible. There loyalty to their employees is none existent. My advice to raley's is to buck the trend and treat their employees like real people again, but we all know that will never happen.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Little pay for massive amounts of work

Clerk (Current Employee)
Fremont, CA

I have been working at Raley's part-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits and fun people to work with.

ConsManagement sucks for the most part. The wages have been frozen for the last year. Don't expect to see any pay increases.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Deli Clerk: Exhausting, Repetitive,

Deli Clerk (Former Employee)

I worked at Raley's part-time for less than a year

ProsI got paid $10 an hour, which seemed pretty good to me as a temporary summer worker. My fellow employees and managers were nice, and some times the customers were nice too. Once I got used to the work it became easy and it wasn't too bad when it was slow.

ConsWe were often under-staffed, not neccessarily becuase people called in sick but becuase they just didn't schedule enough of us to work. It was extremely frustrating trying to deal with a long line of people at the deli or sandwhich shop with with only one other employee. Customers often complained about us being under-staffed and could be very rude. The job is also much more physically demanding than I expected as you are on your feet all 8 hours and spend much of the time reaching into the case. I'm only 20 and my back hurt at the end of the day.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people, especially in the deli.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Together we stand , Divided we fall

Grocery Clerk (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I have been working at Raley's full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLocal company Tom Raleys Treated employees golden. Mike Teel is friendly and Stops by the stores and talks to all employees

ConsTom Raleys Died.so did the value of the employees. Plus not many good directors. Mostly lazy self serving People that need to learn how to build employees up not beating them down.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot get Lazy. Work with your employees instead of watching them work. Join in they will respect you for it,
Send you whole managent team to a team building event and invest in employees , who they WILL invest in you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

If you are topped out, watch your back they will fire you for anything

Deli Clerk (Former Employee)
Chico, CA

I worked at Raley's part-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood benefits
Work around personal schedule
Employee Discount
Nice Co-workers

ConsLow hours for new employees
Hours change weekly
Poor Management
They expect a lot without giving you the people to get things done
If you are on the "old contract" or topped out, watch out they may fire you for even the slightest thing.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure all your personal hygiene product machines in the bathroom work properly. Just because they are full doesn't mean they work. If you're going to fire an employee over something petty consider how long they have been with the company and how great of a worker they are.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
