Good working environment. Needs better pay. Medical benefits nice.

Meat Clerk (Current Employee)

ProsIt is a union job, so your rights are protected. i.e.. Getting breaks, getting paid for "all of your hours," treated with respect etc.

ConsThe coorporate policies are disconnected from reality. For example, you need to fill out safety observations where you comment on another employee working safely. It has become something that management just wants you to get done so they can fill a quota. They don't care if you pretend that you really observed something.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to spend more time in stores rather than just coming up with new policies. It would be nice if the Union came by more often. We do pay them $100 a month.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
