    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?

    it was good to get experience and your job is protected by a union so you can't get fired for any thing.

    Pros

    basically you can take off as much time a you want and you only really have to give a week notice.

    Cons

    closing at midnight, opening at 5:30, customers are rude, they always ask you to stay later, pretty hard to move up in the company.

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

    Pros

    If you work hard and stay over your shift times you will be recognized as a valued employee. However that doesn't mean much.

    Cons

    If you let yourself you will end up working early mornings and nights flip flopped with no stable schedule.
    If this is a side job for you make sure it stays that way.
    I have many friends who dropped out of college for this place and it's not worth it.
    Once you hit your cap out rate there is no other way to get a raise other than changing departments.

    Give combos a pay raise, They do the same job as cashiers on top of the duties of a bagger for maybe a dollar more a week. Raise the hourly salary.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to move into management fairly quickly.

    Cons

    You have to work all weekends and holidays. They don't like to work around other jobs or children, etc. New employees get no additional holiday pay until they have worked there six months, then it's only Thanksgiving and Christmas they get time and a half for. It takes a couple of years before they start getting paid for all the other holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to listen more to the employees who are working in the stores and make them feel more valuable.

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. The fact that there is a union is also wonderful because I feel that my job is protected.

    Cons

    I work as a bagger and a combo and I do not get paid very much even though I've been with the company for two years and it's easy to feel for granted and stuck in one spot. You're not getting paid alot for something that other people get paid 20 dollars an hour to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you acknowledge everyone who works hard. I've gotten positive customer reviews and have never been recognized after two years but I know people who've been working for a matter of months and have gotten recognition. Also, please try to give more opportunities to move up the ladder.
