    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for kids in high school & college

    Cons

    Currently people have been frozen at step 7 which is 12 $ an hour. Some people have been stuck here over 2 years. Next step is 13.98 $ an hour. I'm certainly ready for my next step raise.

    Pros

    Raley's is small enough that you can get things done but large enough to provide excellent benefits.
    The company is so friendly and welcoming. I did not know that companies like this existed any longer!

    Cons

    Rollouts of needed upgrades happen slowly, but are well thought out before being implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture positive and friendly. It makes a difference

    Management overall believes in and practices servant leadership, the schedule is flexible, the pay is decent, and the benefits are outstanding.

    Pros

    You can go as far as you push yourself. Many members of senior management started as courtesy clerks and worked their way up.

    Cons

    Unionized stores! Causes more harm than good.

    Pros

    Benefits (sorta), they work around your school schedule.

    Cons

    They treat employees like crap. Store directors are jerks. They are union and the union screws with everything. It's a horrible job for horrible pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT'S A GROCERY STORE. NO ONE RESPECTS YOU. JUST RELAX.
