    Pros

    Very exciting - I worked in various capacities in HR and in the stores and had a fun time. They have fantastic employees, and the services that they provide are excellent. I had the opportunity to provide training at stores throughout Wisconsin, and therefore was able to spend time with a great number of their employees.

    Cons

    When Roundy's supermarkets forced the independent owners to sell or they would stop providing groceries, it caused a lot of bad feelings with the employees, many of whom are lifetime workers. They changed the focus of the business from providing excellent customer service to making money. They slashed hours on the front end (cashiers, baggers, etc.) and then complained when customer service suffered. It is a constant battle between them wanting to make more money, and not being able to cut anything else from the stores.

    Advice to Management

    The employees that work for the company as a whole are wonderful. They need to be recognized as the valuable resource that they truly are. I had experiences calling the corporate office for assistance, and was yelled at because they didn't have time for me - that is unacceptable. When you treat your employees that way, that's how they treat customers because they believe the behavior is acceptable. Lead by example!

    Pros

    Knowledge of deals and huge savings before Anyone else. And It is nice to get paid on a weekly instead of by weekly.

    Cons

    Crazy expectations of workload completion time, in turn causing a 4hour shift to become 6 or more! Never any time to take a break and over worked

    Advice to Management

    Do not overwork people because you'll eventually wear them down and they'll leave.

  8. Great employers, but let's be real It's a grocery store. Your co-workers are very likely to be obnoxious teens.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for advancement at the front end.
    Flexible scheduling. Roundy's does a great job of working with what times you're available.
    Takes quite a bit of slacking to get fired. Job security.

    Cons

    After learning bookkeeping, it definitely feels as if there is a ceiling.
    Takes quite a bit of slacking for bad employees to get fired.
    Very boring during downtime, or lack of customers.
    Hours are thin. The best employees get 28hrs/week, but promotion to full-time is incredibly rare.

    Advice to Management

    Cross-training employees who aren't likely to leave the company in different departments would help raise morale of the people whose impact (upon morale) is the greatest.

    Pros

    Can be flexible for time off when giving notice. Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition, dirty working conditions, lack of teamwork in some ways at the front end. People don't clean up after themselves before I start a shift.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to make it a cleaner work environment. Add more utility crew, focus on cleanliness and customer service instead of speed.
