    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets

    Pros

    I liked what the job what supposed to be. Little micromanagement

    Cons

    Complete disregard for employees, foster a culture of blaming rather than taking responsibility and fixing the problem, cut hours to save money just to dump it all into the Illinois stores (which conveniently have the CEO's name on the buildings).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New CEO. How many more people need to leave before someone realizes the problem is not in the stores?

    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay isn't bad for long time employees, challenging work can be rewarding, nice coworkers

    Cons

    No labor hours, upper management constantly meddling, one size fits all merchandising model, hostile management culture which filters downward, idiotic uniform code

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your brand instead of tarnishing it and treat each store equally. Stop over expanding and focus on bringing existing stores up to par. Stop passing the buck to the stores and bring some accountability to the delusional executive management team.

    Hate what my store has become!

    I have been working at Roundy's Supermarkets

    Pros

    We have a great team at our store that works together. Benefit premiums are fairly inexpensive. When you need off it's usually not a problem.

    Cons

    Most of the problems come from corporate! If they would let our managers run the store the way it needs to be ran, things would be great! They give departments such little hours that it is impossible to get the work done. Full time employees don't get 40 hours, more like 35-38. There is so much pressure to try and get the work done that customer service suffers along with cleaning! It saddens me what this company is destroying!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in the stores and LISTEN to your employees!

  7.  

    Very hard work. Upper management micro-managed which would damper moral of workplace and ultimately production..

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

    Pros

    The money paid the bills. There was an active union which provided great benefits.

    Cons

    Work was extremely physical! If you weren't in decent shape, forget about it. If you worked out and went to the gym, this work will destroy your body. Have to make standards (rate) which was questionably tough. The way the program was written, felt accelerated at times and thought to be unfair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat others how you would want to be treated. I had better schedules when I first started!..(weekends off)

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are quite strong

    Cons

    Bob Mariano berates his senior staff thereby turning them into "yes" men. The over-arching strategy is to subsidize Chicago via Milwaukee. There is no way the same store sales for Milwaukee will exceed -2% as a result. This leads to an unpleasant working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Split the company so you can concentrate on Chicago (which is clearly what you want to do), and stop destroying the PNS brand in Milwaukee.

    Pros

    Co-workers are the best. Like family. I have made many good friends working there.

    Cons

    This company does not care about their employees. Expect miracles from all of us while our hours are being cut. They don't care about you as a person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the ones who run your stores. Instead of cutting hours on us cut costs elsewhere. For one example the amount of tags and signs that are wasted.

    Pros

    your caleoworkers are usually friendly. everybody becomes close like family. the pay and benefits are good

    Cons

    the company does not respect their employees very much. they only seem to care about how much sales they can make. there is never enough help in the store because the hours are always cut and they do not hire help when needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have incentives to motivate the employees. give more positive feedback rather than focusing on the negative all the time. do things to improve employee morale. provide employee discounts
