    Easy Work on a daily basis

    Boring overall job on a day to day basis

    Attempt to excite employees about their jobs.

  3. 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.

    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.

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

    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.
