    friendly coworkers, easiest job you will ever have

    Cons

    poor management, no hours, underpaid, no communication, favoritism, no discipline, young management, slow workers, no advancement/

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    discipline the employees when they come in late or when they don't come in at all, watch who does the most work and reward them for it, don't hire people who cant keep up with the goal shopping level.

    I have been working at Peapod part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a good company to work for however, theirs no opourtunity to grow. Those with longevity get the least hours the bare minimum minimum. And those who are just starting are getting more 20+. Theirs always new management, no chance to build repore. Non professional at times and a lot of favoritism.

    Cons

    No chance to grow or move up in the company. No chance of gaining repore. Non professional. Young Management. Favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be Professional. Oblige Company Policies to its fullest. Incentives every 90s days would be a plus.

    I have been working at Peapod part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible which is a great thing for a college student. There are shops in the morning and in the late afternoon as well. Also, you get to work with a lot of other people at once which may be a good thing if you're a social person. Most of the other workers I was with were very nice.

    Cons

    It is essentially minimum wage with very little upgrades in pay over time. Also, the work is very tedious and you are constantly on your feet and being pressured to reach certain goal times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees and give better rewards for those who are considered top shoppers.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Skokie, IL

    I worked at Peapod full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice physical workspace. Large monitors and weekly fruit delivered. Some really cool developers and quality assurance testers but their has been significant turnover.

    Cons

    Antiquated technology stack with a code base that is not very well maintained. Lots of refactoring needs to take place but don't have the resources to make it happen. Catch-22 situation that probably requires hiring consultants to clean things up or start over. Some of the development managers need to improve their people skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My perception of the founders are that they are happy with sale of the company and are in their position to occupy their time. The sense of urgency to compete is not there. Improve your technology to remain relevant in the marketplace otherwise Amazon will eat your lunch even in markets that you are established in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your employees and maybe your turn over rate will decrease.

    I worked at Peapod

    Pros

    Fun coworkers decent hours paid vacation

    Cons

    Management issues and long shifts at times.Some employees who kissed up got better treatment and the ones who worked hard basically got nothing. Last night shift all had to stay and clean black mold from the back of the dairy cases.

    Pros

    Rate of pay, working unsupervised, bonuses, working with good people from the general area. Working with store team. air condition

    Cons

    No upper management support. upper management does not have the minimum experience to run a facility however, they routinely ask store management to do a job with little or no labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what direction you want to go and stay the course. communicate that direction to your facility managers.

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

    Pros

    The pay was great seeing that you needed no specialized skills to do the job.
    You weren't constantly micromanaged
    The company cared about its drivers

    Cons

    Getting time off as a driver was difficult. (blackout dates, limited time off)
    Mistakes led to termination.
    Driver turnover was high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improving the PTO procedures would make drivers more comfortable.
    Being more transparent at the lower management level.
