    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There's always room to move upwards because people are constantly leaving or being fired.

    Cons

    Employees are a dime a dozen and they're treated that way. People are purposely given too few hours for them to be able to get health insurance. Even if you're hired for one position, you may end up getting moved (with or without your consent) to cover an area that needs to be filled because of unreliable workers.

    Pros

    Able to keep busy, flexible work schedule, good co-workers, and a lot of opportunity to learn about different aspects of the store and business.

    Cons

    Company does not supply enough labor to operate the stores and meet company standards. Frequently have to work later then scheduled shift. Lack of communication between different levels of upper management to store level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is headed in the wrong direction, supply the store with more help to please customers and meet company standards.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, loved my co workers and store managers, got paid every week on Friday

    Cons

    Needed to do extra training to get full time hours, which was kind of dumb considering I was a cashier, I think they just hire part time so they dont have to spend money on benefits. No employee incentives or discounts

    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The store I worked at truly had some of the best coworkers I have had the pleasure of ever working with. Flexibility in scheduling was a plus. It was an easy job to get.

    Cons

    The CEO has completely shifted his attention from the Wisconsin locations to the stores in Illinois (Mariano's in the Chicago area). Because of this the Wisconsin stores are obviously suffering; Mariano's is what's keeping Roundy's from going completely bankrupt.

    The employee bathroom in the break room has been completely ignored. The floor hasn't been properly cleaned in months, they leave rolls of toilet paper on the ground next to the toilets since the toilet paper holders are broken. Not only is this completely unhygienic, it shows an obvious lack of concern for employee health and safety. If it's not acceptable for customers, why is this acceptable for employees? There is a self checkout machine that has been broken for months and as far as I know there have been no efforts made to have it fixed.

    The pay is extremely low; if this is your only job I would advise adding a second job, or better yet, get out while you can and get a higher paying job. Some of the customers can be quite rude, you are on your feet for several hours at a time and only get 15 minute breaks (and only 2 max). I worked there because it was the only job I could get at the time.

    There would be times you would find that your hours had been severely cut; apparently there is pressure from corporate to cut hours to save costs, so if you want to be sure that you're working a certain amount of hours a week I would advise looking elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to make sure the employee break room and bathrooms are clean and up to code. Educate employees on store promotions so when they arrive, we aren't completely in the dark.

    Good people in the company, top to bottom, but lots of disorganization

    Pros

    Home office. Lots of good people there, some great managers who will listen and work with their employees.

    Cons

    Too much focus on IL, disorganization in the merchandising groups, top heavy organization, and the stores need and deserve more support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't recommend working here based on the perceived shaky future of the company.

    Pros

    Some of the people there are quality people who are trapped by whatever circumstance they fell into.

    Cons

    Horrible micro-managing at all levels. Inbred senior management. Wisconsin stores are simply a small revenue stream to subsidize Chicago expansion. Unsustainable business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run!
