    Pros

    Decent pay for the position, closed on major holidays, shorter hours than a regular grocery operation, shortened hours on the weekends as well.

    Cons

    Terrible management in place, no training program in place just a printed out checklist they hand you upon your hire date that's never gone over before the end of your probationary period, facilities are dirty and outdated in equipment, took almost three months for me to get a company sweatshirt and jacket.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen more to your department managers in terms of complaints and suggestions and stop looking at this feedback as more work for you to do but as the work that you signed up to do as a store manager instead.

  3. Highly reliant upon complex business rules, manual processes and a real lack of support make for working here difficult.

    Pros

    You have the freedom to either sink or swim.

    Cons

    No standardized training on processes and food safety programs that are nothing more than lists of things that need to be done. No documented training in how to accomplish these processes that are meaningful to the safe handling of food. You are working with people who often times are collecting a paycheck and a total lack of ownership so the managers are left with cleaning up the mess.

    Advice to Management

    implement a real computer system that can integrate all of the business rules and bring in automation to bring about compliance to audits and ensure the safe handling of food.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Food and pot lucks provided here and there

    Cons

    Horrible morale, complete disorganization, especially the walk in freezer. Many times, customers could not receive what they were looking for because I couldn't get to it or even find it. At many times I had to climb the shelves, which is against company policy to retrieve products for customers.

    Advice to Management

    Address the issues to make your store run more efficiently.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people and decent union.

    Cons

    Work environment, structure, work load.

    Advice to Management

    I been with this company for over 7 years. I've seen several people come and go and although I'll admit that some of the employees and managers are some of the most down to earth and carrying, this doesn't really translate to corporate level. The place is dysfunctional with everyone thinking they're a boss. Union employees make more than some of their supervisors and managers are typically running side deals with customers to make up for their low wages. Employees consist of people that have no other options or have reached a level of "comfort" from living a routine. I don't recommend this place as a long term investment for your life, just a stop if really necessary.

    People
    Success of Company
    Growth Potential
    Encouragement of new ideas

    Cons

    Can be disorganized
    People must always be busy
    Computer system is antiquated and costing hundreds of hours of delay and frustration every day/week. The Senior Management should have computers no better than slowest computers in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with what you are doing but be open to opportunities to leap ahead of the competition.
