    Pros

    Great for College students and highschool summer jobs. The jobs are only good if you are full time and are in upper management.

    Cons

    They tend to cut hours and work you butt off if staff is low. Not enough employees to cash people out so upper management has to abandoned their job and wait on customers.
    Sometime it can take up an hour and the upper management team has big egos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish you could be more respectful and consideretet towards your employees. Please don't cut hours and try to persuade people to work for you if you don't have work for them and then ask them to go home

    Pros

    Compensation, employees you work with

    Cons

    Ethics of loss prevention and human resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management have not received raises or bonuses in two years. Service is rediculous and blown out of proportion. I would not recommend this employer to anyone.

    Pros

    Manageable pace in pharmacy allows you to get to know your customers/patients

    Cons

    Tech hours you earn from prescription sales does not carry over so if you are slow one week and busy the next you can find yourself with little or no technician support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow some carry over of technician hours so that the pharmacist can have more freedom to initiate events in the pharmacy (ex, health awareness and prevention, disease management clinics, etc)

    I worked at Randalls

    Pros

    If you want to gain experience in a management trainee job. I was recruited to work here from college and it was a good experience to gain management experience and offer some knowledge of popular practices with employees, and such, so Randalls provided a good framework from which to learn and grow professionally.

    Cons

    The hours are bad and you will have to work holidays and weekends. Which was not terrible, but it was long and arduous and I missed out on a lot of holidays because of the work shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would implement more employee training programs and communicate to employees that Randall's wants to help them learn more and grow with the company, grow their skills and provide training initiatives so that people feel their talents are being cultivated and valued by the company. It also gives them a sense of security by telling them they are continually learning and becoming more of an asset instead of just an expendible employee.

    I have been working at Randalls

    Pros

    Some very nice people. Customers are courteous for the most part and the atmosphere is pretty mellow. Most stores have an in store Starbucks.

    Cons

    You will never be able to get everything done in a day. You will be hounded about your labor and given more and more to accomplish without additional time in which to do it. If you care about doing a good job, you will feel incredibly stressed and have little to no satisfaction in a job well done. This a labor driven company, not a sales driven company.
    The pay is way below par and because of that the caliber of worker, the turnover rate is high.
    There are a lot of bitter people working in the stores who feel undervalued, under paid and over worked.
    The micromanagement and paper work adds to the frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to promote sales and the labor will take care of itself. You cut off your nose to spite your face by not allowing departments the time to do all they could do to increase sales.
