Current Employee - Front End Manager in Albertville, MN

I have been working at Coborn's part-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly Co-workers, Very Flexible, 20/20 point cards for $20 bonus gift cards, Time and half on sundays (if grandfathered in)

Cons

Cash Wise Foods division isn't as personal and friendly, starting out at minimum, low raises (usually $.07 every 6-12 months), some stores are outdated and technology for employees is out of date as well

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Update stores & technology, recognize positions for raises.

    Pros

    For a part time job this has been one of the better places that I have worked. They offer flexible scheduling, paid time off, profit sharing, and 401 k, and 1.5 time on Sundays for part time employees. Coworkers and management are generally friendly and easily approachable. They also offer many training opportunities for employees to take advantage of. As the Waite Park location is close to the corporate offices I see many members of management coming in to see how work is performed and talk with employees.

    Cons

    There seems to be a constant downward pressure on hours. It seems every 6mo period they cut available hours for departments. This results in a more stressful workplace and overlapping of many positions. There are not many opportunities for employees to move to full time at the store level the but company always seems to be posting management/corporate positions for employees to apply for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers appreciate having shorter check out lines and more workers on the floor to ask questions to and help them locate product. The constant cutting of man hours leads to many frustrated customers. Also, hiring consultants to follow us with stopwatches to determine how we can improve efficiency is not good for morale.
