    Cross training and rotating departments is a great thing. It keeps people from falling into a rut, and keeps it more interesting.

    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

    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.
