    I worked at Raley's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This company provides great benefits, even for part time employees. Pay starts out a little above minimum wage, but that is to be expected with entry level positions.

    Cons

    It is fairly difficult to become a full time entry level position. It takes a long time to accumulate a significant boost in hourly pay.

    Pros

    If you like working with the public then the checker (clerk) experience is for you. Nice people work here, management in this store is very fair and cool. Good benefits. Company considers itself a family. They do work with me and my schedule.

    Cons

    Not sure that compensation is competitive but I have not shopped the competition for that info. Unclear about how committed company is to developing employees.

    Current Employee - Pharmacy Clerk in West Sacramento, CA

    I have been working at Raley's full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work around school schedules, closed on Saturdays, leniency with sick calls or late punches, fun and hard working coworkers, decent pay steps/raises, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Open on Sundays, strange rules and procedures, no clear training guidelines, questionable ethics, no bonuses or recognition, terrible operating hours, dirty work environment, no chance to move up, nonsensical scheduling and worst of all, poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make correct schedules at least 2 weeks in advance, have clear training guidelines, stop with rules and procedures, learn to give credit to those where credit is due.

    Current Employee - Corporate Management in West Sacramento, CA

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

    Pros

    A family-owned company with a rich history and a culture that is driven to give the best service and products to customers. There is a sense of family present. There is a common vision and purpose that people believe in.

    Cons

    Overall, a great place to work. The challenge can come, at times, as ideas surface faster than the ability to move on them. Though great at executing, more partnership across teams is needed to help the company move faster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue supporting a strong and passionate culture and o work towards clear priorities, to support the common vision and purpose.

    Pros

    I work at the corporate office, and the people are friendly, my boss is awesome and each day has brought a new and exciting challenge! I look forward to coming to work everyday!

    Cons

    I am not used to being on a time clock, it's get a bit annoying at times. I had been a salaried employee for many years having to clock in and out and take breaks when everyone else has been a challenge.

    Pros

    Great benefits, very rewarding, working with amazing people, helping grow the business, great promotional opportunities, very professional.

    What started out as a part time job as a Courtesy Clerk for me while going to school, turned into a life long career. Can be very rewarding as long as you put the work and discipline into the job. Always be willing to learn more, and make it known to your Store Team Leader you are interested in moving up. They are your biggest asset.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of besides working most holidays, which obviously comes with retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing because it works! I love the constant feed back on how I am doing, and the guidance and resources to help me succeed to move up further in the company.
