    Pros

    THis is entirely based on who your manager is, but it is a great company. You work with great people and really impact your community. Work is good, pay is good, and management is good.

    Cons

    The corporate structure isn't great and they have a lot of changes going on as they sell stores

    Advice to Management

    Get better at training employees

  5. I have been working at Piggly Wiggly Carolina full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The starting pay was good and at this point, I get three weeks paid vacation. Working with the public is something that I like, so that is a good point for me. Company standards are high and the quality of working conditions is very good.

    Cons

    The benefits offered by an independent store are not the best in the industry. Raises are very hard to come by, even though they tell you that they think you deserve one.

    Advice to Management

    Being what is basically an assistant manager, I do not feel that it is my place to offer advice to upper management, however, I will say that employee appreciation is very important and should be expressed at every deserving opportunity!

    Pros

    This company does have great benefits. If you like being involved with customers hands on, then good job to have.

    Upper Management isn't involved as much as it should be with the Produce Managers

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more tools and incentives for success.

    Pros

    GREAT associates to work with. Employees are very loyal to the company and work hard. Good oppertunities to advance for some people.

    Cons

    Upper management not quite as loyal to company as they are to themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Company was built on "family values". Seems that after upper management got their buyout their not as loyal as they would like people to think.
