    I worked at Nash-Finch full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Local people do care. Interest to involve personnel and train to higher levels. Benefits are okay, but only for full time. A lot of good people throughout company.

    Cons

    Poor pay scale that does not keep up with other businesses. Company IT department is a wreck at corporate, which everyone knows but does nothing to fix. Little money invested in upgrading old worn facilities.

    I worked at Nash-Finch full-time

    Pros

    The company used scanned to load, directed put aways, and it was my experience with AS400.

    Cons

    As with most grocery distribution centers, selection and loading was performed on 2nd and 3rd shifts.

    I have been working at Nash-Finch full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is kind of decent. They try to have company events to make the employees feel appreciated. The benefit package is pretty impressive.

    Cons

    Supervisors don't respect employees. Insurance premiums are too high. Raises haven't been given in over five years. Senior management is severely incompetent. The company is not concerned about a work/life balance. Need I say more?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better, and they will become more productive.

    I have been working at Nash-Finch full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, good internal people who want to perform their best and service their customers at the highest level.

    Cons

    Working at Nash is like being a duck at a carnival shooting gallery or a bad fairy tale. Your fate gets decided by a couple of people sitting in their castle based on an opinion they build of you, whether its personal or physical. There is a gap between reality and factuality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some VP's with backbone who will tell you what you need to hear, not want you want to hear. People in leadership roles have become puppets to those above them and it all started at the corperate level.
