I have been working at United Supermarkets part-time for less than a year

Pros

Friendly coworkers, positive company culture, easy job, fifty cent per hr raises annually per coworkers, supportive managers, opportunities to advance to management positions

Cons

Limited number of full-time positions, no health or retirement benefits for part-time employees, scheduled hours very different every week, schedule posted with only one day notice and not available over the phone so if you're not working that day you have to go in to see if you work the next day, low entry-level wages, some supervisors make less than their employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to minimize your turn-over, you need to create more full-time positions with benefits and salaries that at least can compete with other food service jobs (McDonalds, HEB, Walmart, etc).

    Good if you are in high school or college. You can almost always get time off if you need it.

    Cons

    Hard to get more than part time, and even part time sometimes don't get enough hours.

    I worked at United Supermarkets part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    United is a great place for those that enjoy team work, customer service, and flexibility. There are opportunities in multiple departments for any level of education.

    Cons

    I noticed occasional favoritism, but most of those matters were sorted out within a few months if the employee that was shown favor failed to perform. United eventually weeds out its bad apples. Unfortunately, there seems to be a steady stream of these individuals always seeking employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
