    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.

    Personal growth is possible but career advancement is much harder.

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

    Pros

    The company pays its employees well and there is a good benefits package if you work for more than 30 hours a week. Management typically rewards you for good work and there is room for advancement within the company.

    Cons

    It can be tough to get to a consistent 30 hours in the beginning and you can't escape working on holidays and weekends. The higher you go in management you become salaried and work at least 50 hour weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation and benefits.

    Pros

    I like my hours and that my boss constantly calls on me for help when other co-workers call in.

    Cons

    The pay for the type of work you do is really not compensated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to know how long will take for me to be able to train for a management position?

    Former Employee - Deli Clerk

    I worked at Albertsons part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fellow associates were very nice. Pay was average, but enough for my needs at the time. Store manager was stern, but nice in most manners.

    Cons

    Deli management was terrible. Threatened termination if a sick day was taken. Manager put workers' names who did not meet her satisfaction on a closing shift on the wall in bold marker for everyone in the store to see. (Supposedly an accident.) Associates continued to quit and people would be rehired, only to quit again less than 2 weeks later with very few exceptions for the time I was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose the managers for departments wisely. If associates are quitting without notice at a high rate, there may be a problem.

    Former Employee - Deli Clerk, Courtesy Clerk, Cashier in Huntington Beach, CA

    I worked at Albertsons part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management was on top of break schedules. I didn't have to worry about waiting forever or getting sent too early.

    Made some good friends.

    Grocery discount was decent.

    Had the opportunity to progress (even if it was just a little).

    Provided most of uniform without cost.

    Paid weekly.

    Got to do different tasks, made things less boring.

    Cons

    Crabby/strange customers

    Nosey coworkers (depends where you work)

    Crappy hours if you have a flexible schedule.

    Room for progression wasn't that great (example: 10 cent raise.... REALLY?)

    Multiple thefts out of the locker room and nothing was done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give the worst hours to just one person! Schedule people together that actually like each other. It makes everything more bearable. Keep cameras in the locker room. I didn't go to work to lose money.

    Pros

    People are friendly, trusting and helpful. Regular breaks (every 2 hours) help with the problem of many hours on your feet in one place. The social atmosphere is very congenial and supportive.

    Cons

    Foot pain. Swelling and pain follows every shift, for longer than the length of the shift.
