    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

    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.

    Pros

    great team environment, good pay and benefit, the culture of the organization was excellent. Most importantly the company communicated with employees on a regular basis. Supervalu always made sure that everything was working for the benefit of both the employees as well as the company. Clear policies, flexible schedules, and the company had room for growth.

    Cons

    During the holidays periods the company could force overtime 7 days a week without time off to ensure customer satisfaction. Other than this, there was nothing else that worried me about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management worked in accordance with the company policies which included agreements reached with the Union. However like in many organization, the management need to communicate with associate more before making the final decision in the warehouse area. Most of the time changes never lasted and usually we had to go back to working as usual; which to me costed the company money for no reason. That said, the management need to here associate point of views as they could be vital.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are average/good depending on your specific job, facilities are clean and orderly. If you like Unions, Teamsters is the union at SuperValu

    Cons

    Everything looks good about this place in the beginning which is what attracted me to Supervalu...but then, once you're there for a few weeks/months you see the layers of wierd politics and management is very passive aggressive, the union here is worthless...I don't recommend buying into the idea that you are being represented/protected here. Management loves to write people up here and document any little mistake because of the union politics...be prepared to bite your tongue a lot here if you choose to work here.
