    Pros

    Varying hours and responsibilities make it so that not every day is the same thing day in and day out. Having more than one store made it so that you didn't feel stagnant.

    Cons

    Having to deal with thieves and crooks. Dealing with unruly customers. The fact that Albertsons laid off all in store loss prevention in Southern CA.

    Pros

    They are flexible with schedules and you get an atomatic raise every 6 months.

    Cons

    Working in the meat department pays well, but a lot can be done to make it safer and more comfortable. It's very cold 35 degrees working there for 8 hours a day. The equipment is old and needs updating to safer higher quality meat cutting equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so cold shouldered.

    Pros

    Constant work. hours always available, relatively competitive pay. Work is not difficult, but requires moving and a lot of lifting, but very easy to grasp.

    Cons

    Tough to move up past position, district management sometimes lacks direction. Time off is tough to get, split days off and inconsistent hours get trying.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make all stores the same, each store has its own appeal and different clients. If people wanted to shop at a cookie cutter store, they would shop at walmart.

    Pros

    My time at Albertsons was very beneficial. I was started off as a bagger and worked my way up to a SSPC (Service Supervisor and Personnel Coordinator) within about three to four months of working there. It was clear from that experience that if you posses the skills and abilities to move up in the company, they are more than willing to provide you with career advancements.

    Cons

    The store I worked at payed weekly which was nice but also allowed the managers of departments to only make weekly schedules rather than bi-weekly. This was a large source of conflict between managers and other employees.

    Also, I was an orientation facilitator and realized that the training materials you are providing for orientation are rather outdated. While the information is still relevant, the majority of the videos are clearly from the 90's and makes new employees as well as the orientation facilitators cringe.

    Finally, for the job that I possessed and the information and responsibility that was put upon me, I simply should have been paid more than $10.20 an hour. It should be company policy to pay individuals with access to all of the employee information and access to all of the money in the store more than the average individual. I always felt underpaid for the position that I was in.

    Advice to Management

    It should be company policy that hourly work schedules be given to employees at least a week in advance rather than just three days.

    Update ALL of your training materials for orientation, not just the ones that used to say SuperValu on them.

    A way to get in contact and provide suggestions to upper management for a more successful and functional workplace would have been nice.

    Pros

    Perfect job if you enjoy serving picky customers in a fast-paced, high-stress environment. Friendly customers.

    Cons

    Very few people to rely on in this department. I was covering shifts I didn't want, but felt obligated to help my coworkers. With little training they still had me close down 7-9, alone, no overtime allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't worry so much about the money being lost with overtime, but how to help your employees succeed.
