    Pros

    They care about you as a person. They want you to do your best. Always Willing to give second chances if it makes sense. Understand that people are their strongest asset

    Cons

    Training programs need some revising. Need to realize that sometimes fieldwork and corporate personnel are not always going to mesh and see things from a different perspective. Sometimes both can be correct and or incorrect

    Advice to Management

    understand most people do care and give a It to succeed but some fall short. It is key to determine where there strength is and make it work for the company

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are very good. Depending on the branch, very fair schedule. Always an opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Good union employees are hard to come by. They don't earn a lot so there's little motivation and incentive to stay. They'll do the minimum amount of work and will leave with out notice for a dollar more per hour.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay structure for the union workers. Too tight on margin on sales leaves you little room for payroll.

    Pros

    Absolute best part of the job is the customers in my experience, if you wanna work here or already do take my advice when I say take care of the customers and they will take care of you! Countless times now I've been invited to different restaurants and they've paid for everything! Always smile and it goes along way! They are the only reason, absolute only reason I'm still with the company

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, management is a gamble every day if they know how to execute the day, very very unorganized if you want to or already work here be prepared to do your job, assist in other departments, and do your managers job if he can't manage his own time. Any store you go to there is always a short on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so one person doesn't have the responsibility of 3 but only get paid as 1, pay attention to the employees that progress and help you make your salary, pay should go by how important you are to the company! I'm only an aisleman and been with company about a year and know more about the store than some supervisors , and some managment

    Pros

    stable, organized, and great team culture including management and spacious autonomy for workers to manage their tasks, nd the safety measures are very good.,

    Cons

    Bad training and at times it could be physically very hard work, for example there is no robust training or structure through which the employees could learn about the products and services thoroughly so they can effectively help customers,

    Advice to Management

    Train you employees better and regularly

    Pros

    The job is low stress and is relatively easy but they put lots of restrictions to make bonus. They are always trying to take money from the employees in the guise of motivating them. However, this generally has the opposite effect.

    Cons

    The company values tenure over anything else. The longer one has been with the company the greater chance of promotion. If one is doing okay but been there the longest one is next in line to get promoted.
