    I have been working at Kings Super Markets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My manager is very flexible with writing me and my co-workers schedules considering many of us are attending college. I have been with the company for over 3 years and have continued to excel. I started off as a cashier but am now working as a bookkeeper, as well as many other areas of the store.

    Cons

    Do not stick up for their employees or have their backs all the time. Do not give raises often even when their workers deserve them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You train your Customer Service associates to strictly follow store policy and guidelines, but once the customer complains (even in the slightest bit) you turn your back on the employee and do anything and everything to make the associate look like the bad guy, and put the customer up on the pedestal. This is not right to do, when most of the time the customer is lying right to your face.

    I worked at Kings Super Markets part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, job is extremely easy, being in a union

    Cons

    Any workplace conflicts are essentially pushed under the carpet and some of the management can be extremely power hungry. Pay is terrible and raises were never given, union dues were high with very little benefit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address conflicts rather than ignoring them

    I worked at Kings Super Markets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are interesting to talk to and I even go back to visit them sometimes.

    Cons

    Managers are less than understanding.
    No real relationship and very little flexibility.
    Managers show angry emotions too often (probably because they do not like their job either)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and build stronger relationships with employees so they don't end up resenting you.
