After all...

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Long Beach, CA

I worked at Ralphs part-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible hours to work for part-time. Most workers are friendly.

ConsYou are given more work to do than you are paid for. Many times understaffed, which created a tense atmosphere between workers and customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers sometimes overlook hardwork. And don't seem to be aware of people to promote.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to establish a career in management.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ralphs full-time

ProsGood pay. Flexible schedule. Growth potential. Good place to start as a student because of flexible schedule and various positions within the store.

ConsWorking nights, weekends, and holidays are expected. Work life balance is good for hourly members, not so much for salaried management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Okay job. Kind of tiring if you're not very fit.

Bag Clerk (Former Employee)

I worked at Ralphs part-time for less than a year

ProsDecent amount of benefits. Coworkers were generally nice and supportive. Pay is minimum wage, but it increases the longer you work there.

ConsSome managers favored employees a lot more than others. I had a coworker that would come in high all the time and the manager never said anything to him, almost joked about it. The same manager would scold and get pissy with me (only me) if I ever stopped to exchange words with a coworker.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the favoritism, give cashiers and baggers a break, we do the most difficult part of the job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
