I have been working at Albertsons

Pros

Flexible scheduling with school if you are a student. Paid once a week was a pro but you dont get paid much.

Cons

Management was horrible, People could do what they wanted, slack off and it was never an issue. Hated it. Stay away

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better your no better than us just because you have to dress up for work. Thats it.

    Pros

    Teaches you how to become a well rounded manager if you can absorb the training. Pay is decent for the line of work. Not too bad of a 401k plan, company matches 100% of the first 4% and then 50% of the next 3% invested. Opportunity to move laterally around between stores and between departments is excellent.

    Cons

    Ever since the company was bought out by SuperValu, they have been playing catch up with the market. Ranging from technology, to sale items, to new push items. new programs coming out every couple of months only because Safeway or Kroger has had success with it. Promotions are based of who you know, not what you know. They keep hiring the same type of managers (have to be working for the company for so many years) and keep complaining about getting the same results. Its retail, if its a weekend or holiday plan to work and not spend time with your family during those times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you not going to sell Albertsons off, then start making some changes. Listen to your customers, they are the ones paying your paycheck. Stop trying to do what every other grocery store is doing. Find a competitive advantage and become the best at that one thing, not just ok at everything. Reward good employees, say thank you every once in a while, dont demand perfection when hours get cut in half.

    Horrible place to work. No recognition

    I have been working at Albertsons full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Discount, benefits, dont know what else

    Cons

    Wow where to start? Been with the company for over 7 years and the only reason why it's been that long is because it's hard to find a job that pays about the same with benefits. Believe me, I'm trying. Management talks down to you, even if you practically give up your personal life to work overtime. Half of the "regular" employees shouldn't even be there and they get more hours than you because of "seniority", and that's due to the union. The union does nothing for the hardworking people, they only protect the lazy ones. No recognition whatsoever for good work. They only talk to you if there is a customer complaint, and half the time they are yelling at you. I have seen so many people leave the office in tears, and nothing is done to the upper management who treat people that way. It's disgusting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real and stop treating your employees like garbage. Maybe discipline your Store Directors more for treating people so horribly.
