Pros

Always profitable, employee stock ownership program, job security

Cons

Corporate positions require long work hours; salaried pay structure for most includes a "bonus" paid in December which is essentially a pro-rated 13th month's pay (i.e., a $60k a year salary is $4615/month for Jan-Dec with a "bonus" of $4615 paid in December if associate remains employeed through year end). The strategy allows the company to retain cash and employee loyalty. Culture is unique - at times cultish. Must be born and bred within the company to move up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Salaries are not competitive when compared to industry standards

    Pros

    Very flexible, pay is above average in the grocery industry, the work environment is very friendly, and there is opportunity for advancement. Great company to have attached to your resume.

    Cons

    Total income is limited. No educational support past bachelor's degree. Company is becoming increasingly "institutionalized." continuous customer contact may become stressful over time. Schedules, pay raises and introduction compensation is sporadic and even unfair. Plethora of nepotism throughout company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate how employees are paid to create fairness and justification for compensation. Communication between employees and management must increase.
