    I have been working at Roundy's Supermarkets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love the crew and a lot of the line staff. Pt they try to work around your other jobs. Starting pay for a non skilled job could be worse.

    Cons

    They have never had a good manager for the department that stayed. Hire left over problem staff from other departments for bakery. Often ignore there own time off rules. Bakery manger needs to get his act together. No time to clean at nights because day shift does not get their work done.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your mangers and full time crew responsible

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

    Pros

    Ability to help build the reputation and standards for the company.

    Cons

    Long hours and travel made it difficult to balance. Very little follow thru and poor organization from the corporate office on objectives and initiatives that were needed for satellite teams.

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate with your teams and provide the support that you have committed to them.

    Pros

    make a lot of money fast. few requirements and most people reasonably good at managing their time will figure it out sooner or later. Can even be fun at times for those who know how to run.

    Cons

    Some people never figure it out and you can tell they will continue to struggle. That combined with the death march overtime and management only seeing "lazy union ____" (some are but not all) makes for a sometimes frustrating atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with mandatory overtime. If target and wal-mart did it it begs to reason that it really, really benefits everyone to see sunlight once in awhile.

    Pros

    Good company to work for so far. They have good benefits and the pay is decent

    Cons

    They try to nickel and dime you when it comes to pay. you have to really work to get raises

    Pros

    Insurance is good. Store directors make really good money for what they actually do.

    Cons

    I often watch assistant managers and store directors do very little compared to a grocery ops manager. Salary does not reflect responsibility. Oh, and typically one 30 minute lunch for 10+ hours of work. Expect to have a difficult time taking vacations too.

    Advice to Management

    Assistants have the cake job at a similiar/slightly higher salary.

    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Gives some work experience to put on your resume.

    Cons

    Upper management disconnect with real world. Semi-shady practices. Belittlement by upper management. Overall I would say bad business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the CEO to someone who has a grasp of reality.

    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits and promotion opportunities. Always hiring.

    Cons

    Be careful what you wish for. Managers end up working an extra 500 hours per year with no pay or comp time. Bonuses are non-existent. Scheduling is very inconsistent on a store to store basis and used by Store Directors to play favorites. I'm shocked the company is not a target for a class action lawsuit for its labor practices.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly. Don't promise bonuses that never get paid or paid at 10% of what is communicated to employees. Spend money on your store employees and maybe your results will improve because good employees will stay. And Meijer is not really your competition or Walmart and Woodman's would have driven you out of business years ago.

    Pros

    Decent pay. 40 hour work weeks.

    Cons

    Store culture is abominable. Hard to balance work/life. High stress. You're lucky if you manage to get one of your paid 15 minute breaks. Despite working an 8 hour shift, you do not get a lunch. Is horrible!

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees are just as important as your customers! Giving us free food on occasion is great, but we need regular breaks to function properly. Provide more hours for your departments so they aren't always stressed out, over worked and under staffed!

    A few decent people working there.

    Cons

    Lost in the past. No tangible plan for bringing the company into the present.
