    Pros

    Friendly managers, good customer base (for the most part), Easy to understand duties

    Cons

    Disorganization, Lack of training, Need to hire better people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you're training people as well as you can. As a courtesy clerk and a cashier, I had an extremely hard time learning both arts, and was really not taught how to do much of anything. Cashier training didn't teach me enough of what I was going to actually need.

    Pros

    Great company with great benefits. Your pay increases based in hours worked, so you will make good money in a reasonable amount of time.

    Cons

    The workload is usually pretty heavy. As a manager, I wish I had more help in my department. I also wish the work schedule was posted a week or two in advance rather than just a few days in advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with employees would be nice.

    I worked at Albertsons full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was very lucky. I had THE best store director in the region. Made a lot of friends. I had planned on making this place my career.

    Cons

    After the 2003 grocery strike things went downhill. Everyone I had worked with for so many years just up and left. I am talking 20 + years with company. That is how bad it was. My store director ending up getting transferred and I let as well. It could have been so much better.

    I have been working at Albertsons

    I worked at Albertsons

    Pros

    They were very accommodating in regards to scheduling especially for those that were still in college and high school.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges that were faced, boiled down to a lot of pettiness by management. Some of the managers and especially when it comes to part time employees do not have any leeway when they need to change their schedule.

    I have been working at Albertsons part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Best part is being a cake decorator and getting to experiment with different designs, health insurance after 6 months,

    Cons

    Push their employees way too hard, way too much work to do if you work in deli or bakery and they cut department hours way below what the district managers ask of them but they still want the same amount of work done. They try to make you work off the clock, cut your hours, throw your schedule around (might leave at 11pm one day and open at 5 the next), rare to become a full time worker (devote at least 8 years to the company first). Manager never orders what we need on time and shorts us on supplies and products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to listen to your employees, treat them like people, dont forget that you work at a grocery store...you aren't god. Please order supplies that we need when we need them!

    I worked at Albertsons

    Pros

    co workers are usually friendly, weekly pay, benefits are ok , union job

    Cons

    raises based on hours worked(e.g. 1000 hours for a pay raise), understaffed departments, employees not trained properly, poorly trained management , it seems like nobody cares about anything until upper management visits then they reprimand you for things that are wrong even after you told them about a certain issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people better
    pay attention to who is working and who is not
    enforce your company policies
    stop hiring relatives of upper management or relatives in general
