    Pros

    Good company to work for, good people and classier customers than some of the other stores out there. People that I work with are nice people and are typically more intelligent than others

    Cons

    Employee discount could be better and management doesn't listen to employees. Also seems very difficult to get rid of people who do not work well. They only fire people if they steal

    Advice to Management

    Take the employees' opinions into consideration and listen to what your customers are telling you because they see more than you do since they are getting an outside viewpoint

    Pros

    Albertson's is very organized and it's logistics are top notch. They strive to keep prices low and customer service is their number one priority.

    Cons

    None that I can think of...wait, your schedule usually does not allow 2 days in a row unless requested.

    Advice to Management

    Always treat your employees with respect and loyalty (as you did for me) and they will perform at a higher level for you and your customer's

    Pros

    Fair pay and great benefits. Loyal and caring coworkers. Friendly atmosphere and aggressive marketing of brand. Sound planning and structure allowed for steady work environment.

    Cons

    Corporate leadership is unpleasant. Greed and self interest drives this company above store level. Liquidation is their real MO. Acquisition of Safeway was more a grab at a defunct operation than any attempt to increase market share.

    Advice to Management

    The roots of the brand are from the original Joe Albertson. Return to the original model. Upgrade your management teams from bonus hungry fools that have never bagged an item to real genuine grocers with integrity and a love for their real boss....the customer.

    Pros

    Great benefits. If you work in a good community you get to establish great relationships with a diverse group of people

    Cons

    Hours based on seniority not ability, Fluctuating hours based on sales which can be disastrous with inexperienced management. Division personnel have been in place for a number of years even though sales have been declining for the same amount of time. Promotions based more on how well you know upper management rather than ability.

    Advice to Management

    Return to promoting people who are actually capable of doing the duties in the position. Get rid of store directors who have been leading under performing stores instead of moving them around. Bring new leadership at the division level.

    Pros

    The people are nice The pay is decent The hours were good

    Cons

    The smell of the butcher block is usually pretty bad It can be difficult to stay on top of things if quite a few customers come in at once The type of work is pretty menial and non-stimulating

    Advice to Management

    In my personal experience, the block was usually fairly disorganized, and it slowed things down for most as a result.
