    New ownership has brought many tough and painful changes to rebuild this company.

    Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThe long term outlook should grow slowly into a stonger and more stable company.

    Cons24/7 business makes for tough work schedules and on call. Operations run lean which translates into long hours or extra days to cover sick and vacation of coworkers. Sarlary is a little low and retirement benefits were cut for company match.

    Just okay

    Department Specialist I (Current Employee)

    ProsEveryone is really nice. A lot of diversity including with age. The company is huge which can mean plenty of future opportunities. Cafeteria and huge break room. Everyone wears jeans.

    ConsThe warehouse is attached to the office so there's a really different blue collar crowd in the break room.

    It is almost pleasant.

    Grocery Clerk Formerly Service (Current Employee) Auburndale, MA

    ProsI recently transferred to Grocery from Service and it is much better. I get to take my break whenever I want and I hardly ever have harassing customers to deal with.

    ConsThe pays not great, and it's hard get great hours. Also, there are almost no benefits. If you work in service you are constantly watched like a hawk by your supervisors and you can hardly move around.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to start a career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat associates serving great retailers.
    Benefits that had been eliminated/reduced are starting to come back (401k match, merit increases).
    CEO Sam Duncan is a strong leader turning a challenged company around.

    ConsPending Albertons/Safeway merger is likely to have a strong negative impact on the company in the next 12-18 months if Albertsons moves business away from SV
    Pay is below market comps.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to bring back the perks - expand to more associates if you can - servant leadership.
