    Current Employee - Cashier Customer Service in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Randalls part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a high school student or college student and are not looking for many hours than this is the best company for you as when you are hired on at part time as all employees are then you will receive 20 hours on the average. If you do not have a problem kissing up to get ahead and pulling the favorite card then you will be happy here.

    Cons

    If you want full time then you are looking at the wrong company. I was hired on desiring full time and now more than three years later Im begging to get more than 25 hours. Im a single mother who pays all the bills and find it very hard to get ahead. When I took on a second job and asked for a regular schedule so that both jobs could work together I was given a very hard time about it and then hardly got any hours at all. I started as a cashier and now work in the customer service area and with working both departments still find it hard to get enough hours to pay the bills. I have had two on the job injuries and neither were the medical bills taken care of nor was the missed work covered either. Holidays are forced and you will not be allowed to have them off to be with family. Holiday pay is only that of $1 more per hour. Favoritism is a huge problem at my store as there are three employees who steady get thirty seven and more hours a week and are listed as part time employees while others beg for hours and loose homes due to not being able to pay the bills. If you have an education please do not think that it will help you move up in this company as you will go no where from my experience

    Im only still working at this store/company because Im at an age that makes it hard to find a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more full time and schedule hours for those who are in need of them and do not make employees feel guilty for seeking a new job to make more hours as the cost of living is so high. I also would advise the mngt team to truly listen to the employees concerns and take them seriously as the part time employees are the ones making your bonus with no appreciation.

    Pros

    Randalls has a great work-life balance; they're very flexible with their hours and will work with you when it comes to scheduling. Hourly employees get a raise every 6 months depending on performance.

    Cons

    There will always be rude customers; don't let them get to you. Can be very stressful if your store is understaffed. Also, although it's not impossible to move up in your store, it's not exactly common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the stores more hours instead of cutting them every chance you get. Cutting your staff down to a skeleton crew stresses them out, and it's much harder to tolerate rude customers when we're stressed out.

    Pros

    Allows for you to develop skills with dealing with difficult people. Also a decent entry level job. Creates and instills a drive for success.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of mobility and low pay. Poor management and efficiency. Lack of ability to change the processes to better the business on the whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quicker improvements to compensation, if someone offers more skills they should be compensated as so.

    I worked at Randalls

    Pros

    If you are a liar and a bully its a good place to work because your manager will protect you

    Cons

    You will be pressured to do unethical things. The uniforms suck. They will not work with you on scheduling issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't have to be a liar and a bully to be an effective manager, quite the opposite. Your good employees are going to your competitors with a strong desire to put you out of business.
