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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Managers sometimes overlook hardwork. And don't seem to be aware of people to promote.

    I have been working at Ralphs full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the favoritism, give cashiers and baggers a break, we do the most difficult part of the job.

    Pros

    Kind employer, and co-workers.
    Flexible Hours.
    Bagging groceries, cleaning aisles, bringing in carts.
    Minimum wage, but room for advancement.
    Training, food and beverages provided as well.

    Cons

    Having to touch overflowing trash bins with no gloves available.
    Not receiving any advice on how to guide customers throughout the store.
    Employee lounge is dark and dirty.
    Training doesn't cover all aspects of clerk duties, but explains corporate goals and
    values.
