I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Company is back to what it was before the Albertson's acquisition which could be a good thing because it can know be more focused on their wholesale business and Save A Lot (which was its strength previously) while it tries to figure out retail.

Cons

They still haven't figured out how to be a better retailer and they're starting to price themselves out of the wholesale business as they focus more on hitting margin while sales decline. They've cut back staff so deeply at banner and region headquarters and are spread so thin that they struggle to get just the basic activities done let alone implement improved strategies and programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start treating people like an asset. You can't keep expecting 60 - 70 hours every week with no raises or 401k match and no end in sight and think you're going to improve results long term.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I got to work with interesting, educated, and nice people. I learned a lot about the retail industry and enjoyed telling people about my job. There was a lot of work to be done, but you were never bored! And added bonus was that they paid reasonably well.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seemed like a lack of thorough planning for the future, as well as sticking with antiquated red tape systems made getting work done very difficult sometimes. There was also a lack of training, and very little documentation. To find answers to questions as a new employee meant finding the right person who happened to know the answer.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for a part time warehouse gig

    Cons

    No benefits whatsoever. hours vary every week. really hard physical work.
    you work 40 hours as a part time employee but never get hired on as a full time employee. which means half the pay, no voluntary overtime, and no benefits.
    Very hard to take time off, you get 2 days off a week, not even unpaid vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your not going to hire us on to full time, at least give us some time off, even if it's unpaid. You wonder why everyone calls in sick all the time.
