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

    Pros

    privately 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.

    Cons

    not 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 ManagementAdvice

    To 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!

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

    Pros

    Customer service experience, flexible shifts.

    Cons

    Corrupt management, little to no union support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Competitive 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

    Cons

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

    Pros

    decent pay and decent benefits

    Cons

    to much drama management does not help and compiles things against you to write you up before they ever tell you that you are making a mistake. bad corporate decisions causing major cutbacks and basically everything else is a con as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lead your people dont manage. get off your high horse and get your hands dirty and be approachable instead of trying to intimidate

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

    Pros

    The stores I worked at would work around my class schedule. Pay is above minimum wage and you even get benefits.

    Cons

    Limited chance of getting promoted at the stores. There is a big focus on promoting people that have been there longest.
    Had to join the union.
