Watch out for the cliques

I have been working at Grocers Supply

ProsStable company, been around 85+ years. Somewhat recession resistant. Currently transitioning from Family-run to Professionally managed company (although will be rough for a few years)

ConsSenior Staff very tenured, and stuck in their own way of doing things. I don't know how many times I've been told "that's they way we've always done it." Some divisions are run very well, others try to make themselves look good , by bashing (very counter-productive) other functions. They don't like change...

Advice to Senior ManagementMore open communication will allow those under the VP level to help improve the business. Need to try to train some current employees to get promoted when the VPs start retiring.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It is a friendly environment that places a lot of value in loyalty.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Grocers Supply

ProsThe co-workers are great. Benefits are very good. Considering the state of the economy, it feels like a stable place. They are bringing some new management in and they have some good ideas.

ConsSome people have spent their whole working life there and are not very open to new ideas. They would prefer the newer people to adjust to "their way" instead of being open to hearing how some things good be done differently.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be nice if there could be more information available about what is going on in the company, with our customers and with competition.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
