    Great for growth!

    I worked at Farm Fresh Supermarkets part-time (more than an 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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Former Employee - Seafood Clerk in Virginia Beach, VA

    I worked at Farm Fresh Supermarkets part-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Close to home. Fair compensation if you excel and perform.Many opportunities to advance ,sky is the limit! PTO time off accrues throughout the year.

    Cons

    Constant change but that's retail. Poor life work balance.Highly stressful work environment.Responsible for store 24/7,must answer phone anytime of the day or night and be prepared to go to store to deal with issues.Difficult to use all your time off.I have had to roll over 40 hrs two years in a row. Lack of experienced dept Managers and associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please spend some time getting to know your Management teams.Please try not to move Store Directors around so much, it hurts continuity among store teams.
