I worked at SUPERVALU part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-Due to union, health benefits available for part-time workers after a year.
-Seniority system rewards those who've been there the longest
-PTO roll-over
-Great people interaction

Cons

-Due to union, salary is non-negotiable and hits a ceiling, (can't earn any more) after years of experience unless union contract gets updated.
-HR personnel eliminated and not replaced during/after recession also union reps have many stores to cover, so no one to go to/represent you at the store level.
-Strong resistance to department transfers and store to store transfers.
-Revolving door

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good leadership means dealing with an issue before it becomes a problem.
Bad leadership is looking the other way and hoping it will resolve itself.
Since management isn't up to the task to act quickly and fairly, HR personnel should be reinstated at the store level.

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

    Pros

    A very supportive and open work environment. Most can work from home, library, coffee shop, etc. provided they are producing results expected from job. Also is a big company with lots of growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Direction and vision. Company has been in constant transition with different leaders and objectives over the years. Office politics also make it difficult to work well with other teams at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a vision and leadership team and see it through. Stop reacting to Wall Street. Focus on reducing prices at stores over long term.
