    Pros

    The Job was great, I worked and got along with my coworkers and packing out all items when shipments comes.

    Cons

    the Union was okay, weekly pay, and two managers, the main one and the floating manager should have their attitudes to be reexamined.

    Advice to Management

    To the Chairman/CEO/Owner of the Gristedes/Red Apple group Mr. Catsimatidis to encourage all store managers to reevaluate their actions from the negative towards the positive.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Good coworkers and customers Trained in all departments within the first few weeks.

    Cons

    Semi annual quarter raises for everyone -- and not much lateral progression for exceptional employees. General Clerks seem to always start at minimum wage. Hours never exceed 25. No incentive based system to help motivate employees.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees. Show them in some way, shape, or form that you see what they're doing right and reward them for it.
