    I worked at Big Y Foods part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    decent pay, flexible hours, interesting work, some cool co-workers

    Cons

    The management is terrible. After working for the company for four and a half years and being one of the top employees in my store I was targeted because the store manager didn't like me. I had a huge target on my back and couldn't even transfer stores because they just wanted me gone, so I had no other option but to quit or to continue being treated in this manner. The ESR's are not on the employees side either making matters worse. I've never been in a job where the management acted like high school bullies before, they are just horrible! Also you will never get a promotion unless you suck up, your work ethic hardly matters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop all the high school gossip and cliques! I was with the company for so long that I saw in three different locations I worked in how the management communicated with each other and would run people out just because of personal opinions and not because of the work an individual did!

    Pros

    *Some Nice people to work with at the front end as well as customers if you know them.
    *Pay is good
    *Fast-paced environment means they're a lot to do in departments.

    Cons

    *Management can get a little unethical and, at times, incompetent
    *Exempt from benefits if certain requirements aren't met regardless of how long you were employed
    *Employees and some managers can initially seem closed-minded and rude towards those they are unfamiliar with. Managers can also get a bit sour if an employee gives simple criticism.
    *Rude customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the favoritism and treat all employees equally, that'll create a more comfortable environment for everyone. Also, constructive criticism from both employees and customers alike is intended to help both you and the store's integrity, and not belittle you as an manager.
