    Good Company to Work for.

    Over Night Stocker (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsIts a really good company to work for with a friendly and comfortable environment u get raises every 6 months with free company items every week or two and some other benefits. this company does not treat employees as employees but as partners and there are equal opportunities for everyone and partners can climb up into better positions. this is a really good company to work with.

    Consthe cons are that the night stockers need to be paid more due to the weight of the work and sacrifices over night and in addition we are the back bone of the store.

    Advice to Senior Managementthere should be more opportunities for games like soccer and a increment in pay of night stockers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Cool Company To Work For

    Deli Lead (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsBig on work life balance. Not hard to get time off when needed. They are also big on attendance and lateness. Store and department management is very approachable. Excellent benefits. Plenty of room for advancement. Firm believers in promoting from within.

    ConsTurn around and come backs, the pay is not great and management can be demanding

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. It really makes a difference.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good company to work for

    Shelf Edge Specialist (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGood hourly rate for retail, especially compared to other grocery stores
    Partner discount/ perks card which gets partners a 10% discount on own brand items, free items, and also discounts at cell companies, some hotel chains, car rentals companies, etc

    ConsAs with any job, how much you enjoy the time you spend at work depends on who you work with. Management for the most part are very open to questions and concerns, but there are some managers that play favorites which makes things awkward for other staff.
    Difficult to get full time positions
    It is retail - so expect to work weekends, nights/early mornings, and holidays.
    Some customers can be extremely rude if a product they want is not in stock

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement really needs to listen to the ideas and suggestions made by staff at the store level. We are the ones that are working the departments day in day out. It seems that sometimes procedures are implemented by corporate that may seem like a good idea on paper, but don't always work so well in practice.
