    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Close to home, vacation time, access to free fitness room.

    Cons

    Healthcare, sometimes upper management didn't communicate well. Business outlook not good. After shutting down the warehouse, the company moved to a "smaller building" and then let 170 employees go 7 months later. I'm not bitter, I looked at it as a nice push out the door to better opportunities!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key to help keep employees informed of what is going on. Be honest, being deceitful will not get you far. Truth, honesty, communication should be the foundation of the company.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU (less than a year)

    Pros

    You stay busy. I've heard there is opportunity to grow within company. On boarding process was simple. Perhaps too simple...

    Cons

    Lack of direction and communication from management. Overworked and underpaid. No sense of team collectively. Left to fend for yourself when in need of help or advice. Many are stuck in their old ways and are resistant to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create job aids, communicate and work with employees to achieve a common goal.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked my way up from entry level to management, and know many others who did the same. Tried out a variety of job functions to learn about the business.

    Cons

    Grocery isn't the sexiest field out there; you're not likely to wow anyone at a cocktail party with stories about working here!

    Pros

    Leadership is probably the best that it has been in awhile. Current CEO tries to connect with the employees but often fails as he does not understand the difference between his salary and those of the vast majority who work for the company. I will give him kudo's for trying!

    Cons

    There use to be a lot of pros that have now turned cons. It was like a family among the employees and family always came first. Not anymore. Since the purchase and sale of Albertson's it has become a cut-throat business. Along with this change came the loss of company loyalty and the willingness to work hard. You are not appreciated. 401K is basically gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees and don't just say it, mean it and show it everyday.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU

    Pros

    Reasonable Bennefits occasional company functions

    Cons

    Lots of In-Fighting between the different departments and very little collaborative cooperation. Business priorities change by the minute, goals and compensation are unfairly concealed until after the latest period stock results are announced. Management is a bit top heavy and mid/low level management is unfairly over tasked with unrealistic goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hang on to and reward your top performers. Align expectations and business need for a result driven culture.
