    Pros

    In my experience, the managers have been nice. The training is great. The best part of working here is the friends I have made.

    Cons

    Just the regular downsides of working retail. There are rude customers, or customers who try to scam you (if you're a cashier). It's tough.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to be more open to employee ideas. I have a lot of great ideas, but this company doesn't give a way to suggest them.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling for parents - easy to make it to kids events

    Cons

    - work every weekend - labor is too tight, can't do a good job - Management is reactive instead of proactive - Corporate leads with fear

    Advice to Management

    Remember what made Cub great - "low price leader", customers were important

    Pros

    -Management comprised of very nice, overly-midwestern folk. -Pay was decent. -Being part of a union is comforting.

    Cons

    -Facilities were old, outdated, improper for what we were doing, and borderline dangerous. -Was taught the job by two different people, both of whom berated me for doing it the way the other person taught me.

    Advice to Management

    Update bakery and deli facilities in locations that were formerly Rainbow Foods before someone gets hurt or customers get sick.

    Pros

    Good pay, but not worth all of the stress that's put on each department manager. 5 weeks vacation, but you need to work many years to reach this number. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management are bullies. their expectations are extremely unrealistic with the hours given to accomplish what they want. If you open your mouth, they will play games with you and transfer you. They don't care about any employee and that includes assistant mangers and store managers.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about the people in your stores! We are hard workers that would like a thank you now and then. Stop transferring employees like they are pawns, you uproot their lives!

    Pros

    Union-mandated pay raises, benefits for part time

    Cons

    Inept management, unprofessional employees and managers, questionable ethics in management, they don't care about your hours of availability and will brazenly schedule you during times you told them you can't work. One manager even gave his phone number to several pretty young female employees and told them call him and harassed them for dates. Other management routinely gossiped about employees, started rumors to hurt feelings, and played favorites. Yet others routinely broke rules and didn't get punished for it because they had buddies in upper management. Received no positive feedback even when I knew I did a good job. Only received negative feedback when I made a mistake. Consistently understaffed on cashiers and all departments, and many employees had to cashier even when that wasn't their job. Management also was not above punishing employees for questioning their methods. Management acts like the mafia. Get on their good side, or you won't last long. Very poor management, very bad place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself accountable for your own mistakes, don't pass the buck to your employees. Work hard and lead by example. Stop gossiping and act professional. Make sure health standards and safety standards are followed. Do not punish employees simply because you don't like them personally. Make your cashiers feel wanted and appreciated. Offer them raises. Give your employees positive encouragement and make them feel as if they did a good job when they earned it.

    Pros

    The thought the co workers were easy to get along with once you were able to find time to chat with them.

    Cons

    Was thinking of going back to CUB Foods as a cashier, however I learned they no longer offer health benefits for part time workers.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the benefits for part time.
