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

    Pros

    Great work life balance. People and management are committed to providing quality products. Great new location downtown. Management open to innovation from all levels of the organization and provide work hours to explore ideas.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Limited vacation time. If you need quiet, this is not the place for you. Open office noisy and chaotic.

    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 have been working at Peapod part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay on time, consistent schedule, professional.

    Cons

    Demanding management, complain too much, don't take upward mobility or internal job applications seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At the Chicago crossdock, stop micro-managing so much. Being a loader or driver takes common sense. We don't need you looking at us on the security camera every four seconds while you sit in the office and play with spreadsheets or facebook. Plenty of loaders wanted to be drivers, so they could actually make a living, but you would host job fairs looking for new drivers, how much sense does that make? Promote internally, pay better, and stop placing idiots in middle management roles.

    I worked at Peapod full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some nice ppl free food to

    Cons

    Call volume is ridiculous, customers are jerks who belittle you which not only does management allow the reward the customer for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent change in management within the call center has lead to horrible changes. Some of the new "upper management" are on a power trip. Instead of jumping in & helping out they micromanage everyone. Get off your fat azz and do something instead of having meetings to schedule your next meeting

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

    Pros

    None unless you want to work in hell, peopod would be a good place to work but there is a women manager that talk to and harass you and the Hr dept and her boss knows about it but do nothing

    Cons

    Being threaten to be fired by women manager an a daily basics being yelled at and put in a slave like work environment very very unfair practices, the union that they have does nothing to protect the employee, If you make it 90 days then it will be 90 days of pure hell I have never worked for a company that harass there employees like that, and to have a poster that says harassment is against the law but do it and when you tell her ( THE MANAGER) she is breaking the law she said I do what I wanna do and if you do not like than find yourself another job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your women manager because she is breaking every law there is when it comes to harassment,
     your hr dept has been protecting her so for but there is coming a day when the government is going to find out about your unlawful practices and shut you down, that day is comming

    I worked at Peapod

    Pros

    There is no good reason to work for peapod

    Cons

    If you are a new employee don't expect to get a route for awhile. Bunch of broken promises.the most unorganized company I ever worked for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about hiring when you need drivers so you can give them work after there training. All I ever got was eventually it is going to get better I don't work for evntually people have bills to pay if you can't give your employees work then stop hiring until you can.
