    A great company to work for who is established and contimuing to head in the right direction

    Procurement Buyer (Current Employee) Mechanicsvlle, VA

    ProsThe atmosphere is not like working in a jail cell or day care. You are not micro managed. You have the freedom to make your own decisions. You don't have to email someone to tell them you are going on break. You are allowed to be yourself and not expected to be a robot.

    ConsI have been here a short time, and so far have come across nothing

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The ripple effect of one big change

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsSupervalu has historically had a lot of great people working for it. It has also been a company that allows a decent work-life balance.

    ConsSupervalu has been in a state of turmoil for the last eight years due to the after affects of the Albertson's acquisition. This has resulted in job cuts, pay freezes, loss of bonuses and no 401K match. They seem to be turning things around but it will likely be a while before they are completely out of the woods.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should work hard to ensure 401K matches, raises and bonuses continue to be healthy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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
