    I have been working at Topco Associates full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Topco really promotes a great work life balance. In the Acccounting department, I found very loyal employees who had been here 10+years for that very reason.

    Cons

    Communication between the departments is really lacking due to the segmented nature of the grocery business. Getting a consistent answer from the Meats and Dairy deptarment would often be completely different from what I would receive from the Pharmacy Department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology to streamline operations and increase ROI for your member cooperative shareholders.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Topco Associates.

    Interview Details

    Met with hiring manager and heard back within 2 weeks. The hiring manager was not professionally dressed and seemed to be disorganized. I did enjoy our discussion though. Especially her honesty on how awkward the company felt right now.
