    I worked at United Supermarkets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly company culture, and low-stress environment are all very positive factors related to working for United Supermarkets.

    Cons

    Among the cons of working here are the few opportunities for advancement, monotonous nature of the work, and virtually 0 in-store benefits as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more incentives for the team members who put in the most work. Employee motivation can be adversely affected when team members don't feel that the work they are putting in leads to better results.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at United Supermarkets in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called a week or so after submitting my application online and scheduled an interview for the next day. The interview was very informal. I didn't have to say much: it felt like my interviewer had decided to hire me before even meeting me. I learned later that he did, simply because I had a steady work history and open availability.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I wasn't told what I would be making until a few days after being hired. I asked around, but no one seemed to know. All my manager could say was, "They pay us pretty well back here." I assumed that meant at least around $8/hr, considering that it requires no experience or specialized training. I was surprised when I learned halfway through my first week that I was making $7.35/hr. The other new hire went to management when he found out what we were making and he asked for more money. They refused, so he quit. So I'd say there is no negotiating with United in my experience.
