Courtesy Clerk

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I worked at Raley's part-time for more than a year

Prosa good job if you are in high school and need something to give you a little spending money.

ConsSeniority is always what will get you promoted even if you are newer and have the best work ethic. No set hours. Discounts are minimal.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good pay, benefits, good work environment, but difficult to get time off.

Pharmacist (Current Employee)
Stockton, CA

I have been working at Raley's full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe pay is on par or better than others in the industry. The benefits seem to be average. The work environment is pleasant, and not too stressful.

ConsIt is difficult to take time off from work, not enough relief people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Raley's treatment of their employees has gone down hill. Less pay and more work load.

Main Office Worker (Former Employee)
West Sacramento, CA

I worked at Raley's full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAs a long time employee, I have seen the pros evaporated. If someone is just starting out today, they may not see the way things were and think that employment is OK ("The new norm"). Although, it seems that today's job environment in general is eroding away all that was good leaving the middle class barely scraping by.

ConsAs a main office employee, there was little job security.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey are just doing what it takes to get the maximum profit possible. There loyalty to their employees is none existent. My advice to raley's is to buck the trend and treat their employees like real people again, but we all know that will never happen.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

its a Ok job but benefits are great!

Department Head (Current Employee)

I have been working at Raley's full-time for more than 10 years

Prosprivately owned, great benefits, some stores union, decent pay, really clean stores, vacation time you can earn is great & you get 3 paid holidays a year. 10% employee discount. Some Paid holidays. very customer satisfaction oriented.

Consnot enough labor, not same family feel the stores used to have, pay increases are poor & far & few between, fluctuating schedule, not much room for growth in company.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo work at store level & really see what store needs are & how the plans they set really work & are implemented. Stick to Tom Raleys philosophies . The industry has changed but some things don't. Tom always said to make it a place people love to shop & employees love to work!

Great first job.

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I worked at Raley's part-time for more than 3 years

ProsCustomer service experience, flexible shifts.

ConsCorrupt management, little to no union support.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on the employee, because by the time I left it felt like the "customer only" focus was destroying work ethic of employees.

This has been a great company to work for.

Assistant Store Director (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I have been working at Raley's full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompetitive pay, benefits, and promotional opportunities. Ability to work your way up from entry level to as far as you have the ambition to go. In a world where retail jobs are under constant attack from competitive forces, there are still good opportunities in managements and leadership

ConsIt is a retail job, the hours are not always in line to have a proper balance of home and work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Little pay for massive amounts of work

Clerk (Current Employee)
Fremont, CA

I have been working at Raley's part-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits and fun people to work with.

ConsManagement sucks for the most part. The wages have been frozen for the last year. Don't expect to see any pay increases.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Nice co-workers but the management stinks. Its a good job if your going to school because it provides flexible hours.

Clerk (Current Employee)
Auburn, CA

I have been working at Raley's part-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible hours, good starting pay with raises, advance quickly, nice co-workers.

ConsUpper management is always changing how they want things done. The company only cares about the customer and not their employees, the Union stinks.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on bring employee moral up with the employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
