    I have been working at B&R Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are for the most part really great people to work with. You can learn quite a bit about the grocery business if you want too.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are very low. Management clearly doesn't care about the employees at all, particularly the corporate directors.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your exemplary employees better. Offer better pay and benefits and you will attract and retain more quality employees.

    Pros

    Parent store seems to see the problem and are trying to improve conditions

    Cons

    Training is not good. You are mentored for two days then told you are on your own. You basically learn through mistakes. And hopefully not too big of mistake

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with employees.


  6. Overall, I would say that my experience at Super Saver went from good to 'I need a new job fast.'

    Pros

    Probably the best reason to work at Super saver would be to get minor experience in fields such as meats, produce, baking, and customer service.

    Cons

    The management of the store is very lack luster when it comes to working with the employees. They do not work very well with the employees and have not been giving hours required to make a living, ie. I went from 40 hours to 8 hours in one week.

    Advice to Management

    The best piece of advice I would give the management is to actually listen to the employees at the store.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You get to meet new people in different departments. You will be trained to do new things. You will also get a paycheck every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than Hy Vee, which is their competitor. Stores are almost always understaffed, so that makes it very hard. Management is rather snobbish too.

    Advice to Management

    This company really emphasizes customer service, but they don't treat their employees as well. Sure, customers provide our paycheck, but without us employees, the customers couldn't get food. So it goes both ways. At this company they like to use the phrase "valued customer" quite a lot but never once did I hear them say "valued employee". Basically I recommend that if a person wants grocery experience, that they try Hy Vee and not B&R.
