    Pros

    Flexibility, decent wages, and upward mobility.

    Employees don't have much motivation as this is a low paying hourly position.

    Pros

    The interaction and relationships with customers and coworkers.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition and appreciation by management for the actual work done and contribution/asset I and the department truly are to the company.

    Advice to Management

    All employees who work full time hours and make the store/company what it is and hence your job what it is should all get benefits.

    Pros

    Some of my co-workers were great people! Made some lasting friendships there.

    Cons

    They get as much work out of you as they can for the least amount of pay. Management was very degrading and often times forgot that I was a grown man and not a high-schooler. While working there, I heard through the "grapevine" that when managers-in-training are going through their training, they are taught to make the employees work hard and skimp on raises. I don't recommend this company to anyone. I was in the military for 10 years and went through some poor leadership but none as poor as these folks!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and maybe you will get some work out of them! Recognize their effort. Sometimes just recognizing someone's hard work goes a long ways and keeps them motivated.

  9. Great for growth!

    I worked at Farm Fresh Supermarkets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working at Farm Fresh because they allowed me to thrive and put trust in me to supervise others even though I had little experience in the retail industry.

    Cons

    A challenge that I faced when I first began my time at Farm Fresh was balancing my work and school life. I eventually was able to change my schedule so that they would better correlate with each other.

  10. Good people, but management is a revolving door.

    Pros

    Farm Fresh is a great place to start working. It teaches you a lot about people and managing expectations.

    Cons

    Management is constantly being relocated and moved around to different departments. It is hard to keep up with who is actually in charge. There is no continuity and customers notice this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the store managers/directors at the same store for longer than a year. It is difficult to judge how they affect sales and customer service just based on a short period of time.

    Pros

    Easy job opportunities, good first jobs for high school students. Employs the disabled and don't really flaunt it, which is respectable.

    Cons

    Awful company policies, inept managers. Worked multiple positions at multiple stores, saw the same problems everywhere. The company cuts corners everywhere to save money because it is a failing brand for SuperValu. Really disappointing to have to work around all of the awful policies, usually made by faceless entities that have no idea what your job actually entails.

    Advice to Management

    Make more opportunities available for employees to offer input on company policies.
