    Pros

    Wide variety of categories to work on. Friendly workers with in departments but strangers outside.

    Cons

    Silo mentality. In-bred. Many workers have worked there way up from grocery store bagger and do not know any other company. Management decisions go up into a black hole and if they come down they are often too late to be proactive. Hence the company has a tendency to wonder quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Decide who you want to be and stop being followers to other Grocery retailers. Stake out your own strategy and stick to it.

    Pros

    IT'S a well known fact that this company is a highly rated successful company. I heard from other employees that Supervalu leaders and supervisors are fair, sincere, team oriented individuals with one thing in mind ( winning).

    Cons

    Employees who don't work as a team for the companies success in the business world.

    Advice to Management

    Real success never fails.

    Pros

    None that I can think of now, thus the reason for looking for something new.

    Cons

    Too many bad decisions made over the last 5 years resulting in too many people either being let go or moving on themselves. Work has been outsourced outside of the US and to another state where the work ethic is not that of people in MN. Merit increases have been little to none over the past 3 years. Benefits are ok, but could be a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Too many lower level managers that don't have a clue on how to treat those that are under them - need to ask bottom level employees to rate their managers and have the results make a difference.

    Pros

    Very flexible with my schedule. I worked my way towards a decent pay and morning hours.

    Cons

    There are a lot of times when we are short on people. Unfortunately with a basic job like this comes a lot of younger and even older individuals who don't want to work.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to always have extra help on hand. We need people cross trained as cashiers and deli workers.
