    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 Management

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

    I worked at Raley's (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are a wonderful group of people.

    Cons

    Lack of focused execution. Flavor of the month is very popular. Computer systems are very old and difficult to use, making completing job tasks difficult. Decision makers do not understand how employees use the systems to do their jobs. Millions of dollars are wasted in lost efficiency and cash leakages.

    Advice to Management

    Walk around. Understand what your employees do and how they do it. Work on removing road blocks and resolving their issues.

    I have been working at Raley's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are great with working with my school schedule, so I can continue to go to college.

    Cons

    Hours are not set, you get your schedule for the next week 4 days before the next week starts, so hard to plan things ahead of time.

    I have been working at Raley's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for and have an amazing set of values and a great cultural vision. They are still family owned for how large they are, and they do some innovative things in the grocery business. It really does feel like a family

    Cons

    Somewhat lacking technologically, sometimes pushes need to be made to move forward into today's work culture and mindset. They are trying, however, to move forward into the modern day.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for, I have wanted to work there since I was a kid because I always went went my Grandmother. The experience did not disappoint. It was a family oriented job, not sure if that's the culture of the company or just the store I worked at.

    Cons

    After working in the deli, which I loved. I was demoted due to company downsizing. It was really hurtful because it was seniority, not based on how good you were at your job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. However it was very clique-ish and I am sure some people felt left out of certain activities. I would work a bit harder at including all the employees in outside activities.

    Pros

    This is a great family owned community with strong community involvement. Very diverse, team driven environment that encourages growth within company.

    Cons

    We are retail, meaning we are open late, work holidays, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Development of tomorrow's leaders is always a focus. Communicate well with others and you will build a culture that will help champion any win.

    I have been working at Raley's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    • Team Members are like family. • Teamwork is apparent. • FAMILY Values are truly a part of what we do.

    Cons

    • Very inconsistent scheduling; no time to plan because schedule come out less than a week before the next; fellow employees may receive more hours. • Some rules are nonsensical. • Courtesy Clerks are significantly underpaid. Labor is significantly greater in comparison to similar-paying jobs. • Managers don't ensure training for newly-hired employees which leaves other employees stressed and overworked. • No company apparel.

    Advice to Management

    Provide consistent schedules, enforce rules appropriately, schedule someone to train newly-hired employees, ask employees if they have any issues every now and again, and allow work to be fun and productive...the more strict you are, the less customers are going to like our repetitiveness and it take away from the personal aspect, and allow employees to interact with each other without feeling they're constantly being watched and uncomfortable.

    Pros

    They have good benefits. The people you work for is normally nice. Management can be a bit to strict on rules.

    Cons

    The long hours can be tiring. Some of the employees do not do any work and can be lazy. This a company that has been around for a while.

    Advice to Management

    You have to really know what you are doing to be a manager at the main warehouse, but some of the management is not very good at other places.


  11. Okay
