    I have been working at Albertsons

    Pros

    The work is easy and management is generally pretty flexible with scheduling. the atmosphere is fairly laid back, nobody is going to go crazy over a small mistake.

    Cons

    I was recently promoted to a management position from my cashier job. Naturally, I assumed the increase in responsibility would come with an increase in pay. Not so. I've fought for a raise and still have to get it approved by my store director. Just the thought of not getting a raise in this situation is appalling to me. It's ridiculous and I nearly quit when I found out. I'm currently seeking other employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The way you've handled my personal situation is outrageous. The company is already poorly run, you can't afford to make more mistakes with personnel.

    Pros

    friendly customers, some great coworkers, a 10% discount on store brands, and the occasional fantastic sale

    Cons

    You get a lot of higher caliber customers who expect much better service, store politics make no sense- if your manager doesn't like you then there is virtually nothing you can do without involving the union, if you have to miss a shift for any reason its demanded that you find someone to cover the shift. Completely unwilling to work with you.
