    I worked at Quality Food

    Pros

    the city where I worked had a pretty good union benefit package. that was changing for the worse every three years, though. everything was going more and more profit/loss. great if you own stock, not so good if you just work there.

    Cons

    inane rules, people promoted based on nothing other than who they were sleeping with; going to more part timers just to cut costs -- so forget about having a life with your family, because it isn't going to happen when you have to work 6 part-time shifts in two stores just to get 32 hours in a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    Easy hiring very easy interviews, easy advancement,

    Cons

    Low pay, advancement means more responsibility for small raise. Work harder, work faster, work for less!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting all your money into remodeling and pay your employees a livable wage. You keep losing good employees due to low wages.

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

    Pros

    The store was well kept, my coworkers were decent enough, and the customers that came through were generally pretty friendly.

    Cons

    Stressed management don't care about employee well being. The pay scale was terrible. The culture was interdepartmentally caustic. There was no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like pieces of equipment. We understand that you have limited resources to work with, but there comes a point where you just seem cold and indifferent. Being told the same things over and over again and selling it off as tough luck is not a good way to motivate your employees.

    I worked at Quality Food full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pros of working here were at the time good benefits. Though they keep taking those away. I was done by 1:30 and there were some cool people that worked there.

    Cons

    We had a store manager that was a QFC zelot . Till he got fired for stealing and having an affair. This place is just a paycheck. It's a hard thankless dirty job. You could work yourself into a coma and it's always about what you didn't get done. You work every holiday and weekend. A short term job because there's no place to get promoted to. The grocery business sucks and it's getting worse. I know someone who works at Safeway. Hates it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people say they need help find them some. Just don't tell them they could get it all done if they were just organized. Management is deaf. They don't want to hear it. Bad unprofessional management. Might as well talk to the wall.

    Pros

    Health insurance. Slow wage increases. Transfer locations. Rotating random hours/days-off. Days requested off (seniority-based.)

    Cons

    Disabilities/education not faster promotions. Minimum wage. Prior work-experience not helpful. Gender-bias. No Sunday pay. No overtime. No holiday pay new-hire(<6mo).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A happy employee is a productive employee. A well paid employee will be happy to customers. Minimum wage is unlivable. Minimum wage requires welfare.

    I worked at Quality Food part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My store was a ton of fun to work at. Mangament really knew what they were doing, and was really good about giving me the hours that i wanted to work. I was currently in school during my time there, and they were very accomidating. The best part by far was the people who worked their. Everyone was super friendly and nice, none of that glumness you get at other stores. I go back every once in a while, and everyone is still so happy. Amazing place to work.

    Cons

    standing for eight hours is killer on your feet, and there were some pretty dumb corporate rules. But that's to be expected
