    I worked at Albertsons

    Pros

    Overall not a bad job to start off with. Starting pay is decent to most teens and getting payed every friday is a plus.

    Cons

    The raises suck. I work there for a full year and had no raise nor had earned a payed a vacation. The people who get paid the most are cashiers and they don't even have to do any work around the store.

    Former Employee - Grocery Cashier in Colleyville, TX

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

    Pros

    I liked working here because it was close to my boys' school, and also close to home, plus I love being a checker/cashier in a grocery store.

    Cons

    Management DEFINITELY needs training!! If you're not in her "click", forget about it! Also manager, she was VERY boisterous and loud on the front end...customers don't want to hear her!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be more patient with new employees! Also, if you have a "beef" or a problem with an employee, talk to them OFF THE FLOOR, NOT WHERE CUSTOMERS CAN HEAR you!!! It's VERY unprofessional!

    I worked at Albertsons part-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    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.

    Former Employee - Deli Clerk
    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.

    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?
