    I have been working at Albertsons part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very easy to work around your schedule, reasonable pay increases, good people to work with for the most part.

    Cons

    The company is getting very much cheaper, so I don't know how much longer it'll be a great place to work. They're making cuts in many places, such as no more 5 cent bag refunds, and no complimentary coffee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so cheap, let the coupons double, bags be refunded, that's what keeps the customers coming, I'm top of our great customer service.

    I have been working at Albertsons full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good for a student/flexible schedule. Even with experience you'll probably still start out at whatever your area's minimum wage is. Raises are based on time in position. You have to accrue a certain amount of hours for each pay raise. Each department has its own top out rate.

    Cons

    So if you jump around to other departments and are not paying attention to hours accrued toward your raise you can zero out your accrued hours. Forever moving the goal post away. Not necessarily the company's fault, but it happens. Generally full time is part time in most positions. Better for people who only want to work 20-30 hours. If you want 40 consistently, especially as your rate per hour rises, look toward moving into department management (not salary management), i.e.-- writing your schedule/giving yourself 40 hours of the hours allotted to your department) or be prepared to hustle for hours in other departments/store locations.

    Pros

    Every store seems to present it's own family-like culture. There is a lot of opportunities for leadership growth at the store level for people with ambition and decent social skills.

    Cons

    Hard to find a work/life balance with retail hours that change every week. You can also find yourself with some challenging coworkers, just like pretty much every other large retail operation.

    I worked at Albertsons

    Pros

    Overall not a bad job to start off with. Starting pay is decent to most teens and getting payed every friday is a plus.

    Cons

    The raises suck. I work there for a full year and had no raise nor had earned a payed a vacation. The people who get paid the most are cashiers and they don't even have to do any work around the store.

    Pros

    Great managers who are friendly, but also get the job done. You get raises on time like they promise you. Great opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Looking back at this job compared to the ones I worked afterwards. There's not many cons here. Unfortunately our store closed in Florida.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, at least the Management at our store in Winter Springs, FL was awesome.
