    Short Term Employment- Treated Not so Well 'Til I decided to leave

    Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) San Ramon, CA

    Pros15% discount, a fair amount of training, constant evaluation, daily meetings, diverse and interesting employees, learning about healthy (and trendy) food

    Consmanagers with difficult personalities, low-ish pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should keep up the high standards, but express more constructive feedback (don't always tear down). This advice is especially directed to the managers who have been with the company for a while because it seemed that they had some sort of ego- or maybe bitterness- and had little sympathy for those who were new.

    Little to no training, low-wage pay for required tasks.

    Bulk Clerk (Current Employee) Whittier, CA

    Pros15% discount off all products in the store, more-less friendly environment, good values and goals; possibility to move up easily and quickly with a very forward desire.

    ConsDead end communication, managers are always running around with their heads cut off, no decency of pay for the required jobs (dollar differences between baggers and clerks) [which essentially is still low because the baggers should be getting paid clerk wages and clerks should be getting paid department head wages]. No training whatsoever, everything is based off of self taught knowledge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpeaking on behalf of all employees, please just give us the attention we so desperately deserve - we are here to work for you and be there for you around the clock but just show us some common decency. We want to work harder and "smile" more and be more lively but the way you treat us and make us feel makes us not want to. I'm sure if you actually went out of your way to speak to us and focus on the good within us that we would be a little happier - and I'm sure the upper management lacks that example for you, but in order to make change you must do something different. so try and run a more healthy environment from what the regional managers expect from you. I can assure you with just a slight change in wage and morality that the outcome of your workers moods and work efficiency would improve greatly.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgreat work environment, great store director, great produce, 15 % discount, good benefits package

    Consmiddle management is unreasonable, and unapproachable. communication is horrible, lots of back stabbing managers

    Advice to Senior Managementlisten carefully to both sides of the story and don't jump to conclusions just to demonstrate support for your managers, develop programs, and stick with them. lots of changes daily, make up your mind, and implement the plan
