Pros – Used to be the people. But they have cut the office work force and expect 1/3 of the people to be able to continue the same level and quality of work. Sometimes I get a thank you or a nice job.
Cons – Mostly everything. The people they bring in are all from MN or out of the company, they no longer promote from within. They reinstated merit raises for them to only be a slap in the face (ie. 12 cents, woo thanks for nothing). Been here almost a decade and I make next to nothing with no one in upper management listening or even caring. All about the bottom line now. No sense of personality or community. They hire in new, lazy Category Managers who expect everyone else to do their job for them. They also treat people like we should be greatful for the job. They should be greatful that all their lowest paid people do the most work.
Advice to Senior Management – Take advantage of the people who have already been here for years, who are eager and willing to be promoted and who CARE. Stop paying people a wage they can't even live off of and stop expecting them to be HAPPY about it. You aren't doing anyone a favor.
Pros – it was close to home
Cons – supervision, and management make this job even worse.
Advice to Senior Management – treat your employes like people instead of dirt
Pros – Once past the 90 day pre union membership period, the job is steady but nothing more can be said about in its favor.
Cons – Largely INCOMPETENT management at store level; Company RARELY if ever provides needed tools/material to allow a worker to excel at the task.
Advice to Senior Management – RESPECT your employees, especially the part time salaried workers who are regarded as little more than "fixed" assets.
Pros – I don't work there anymore
Cons – Longevity and years of knowledge means nothing to these people. They cut jobs like other people change socks. Without thought
Advice to Senior Management – Management needs to remember what it's like to work for a living. Stop taking bonuses and other benefits and treat your employees better.
Pros – None, literally I cannot think of one pro
Cons – No discount, poor management everything
Advice to Senior Management – Give up on everything please
“Miserable experience. Veterans do not like outsiders and do whatever is necessary to push them out.”
Pros – The lower level employees are the greatest. Management needs to realize what a great workforce they have and treat this group like humans and remember they are the ones making the money for the company.
Cons – Very difficult to join as an outsider. Veterans have their succession plan decided, and will harm anyone's chances if you stand in the way. Evil tactics used to rid the company of someone they don't like.
Advice to Senior Management – Open up your minds and be willing to listen to new employees who might have good ideas. Don't attempt to replace the person who left with a clone. Everyone has their own personality and ideas, and squelching that is harmful to your company's future.
Pros – company sucked no no no
Cons – company sucks dont work here
Pros – Hard to think of anything positive to say. The people that made the company great are gone and the company lacks direction.
Cons – I worked at one of the retail banners until the company decided to lay off all of the regional staff. The retail banner I once worked for has lost customers, and share of market due to lack of leadership, focus, poor store conditions and lack of community relations. There is poor morale of employees. Management really does not care.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your customers, employees and community. It will be hard to regain what you once had. The competition is taking your customers. I worked for the company for many decades but I find it hard to shop in any SUPERVALU store anymore.

Pros – As has been stated on this site, many people at SuperValu are good, hardworking people. They tend to be the front-line employees.
Cons – A lot of the managers play office politics. Some of them do not have the computer know-how for their jobs. I knew one who barely knew Excel. Also, my current manager likes to delegate the stuff he should be doing to me despite what policy states, and despite the fact that I don't have a lot of time to do his job in addition to my own.
It is hard to fire bad employees. You have to be written up three times to be fired, so a lot of people are in jobs that require detail orientation and are not detail-oriented. Then the rest of us have to fix their mistakes until they either quit or get written up.
There are frequently unrealistic deadlines and not enough people do to the work. Sometimes managers go against the remote policy and forbid people from working at home, even if we could be more effective working from home.
I would not at all be surprised if this company gets bought out in the next few years.
Advice to Senior Management – Dump your dead weight and do more to attract actual talent.
