    Advice to Management

    Keep doing, what you're doing, the training program is top notch and I feel like my whole department is awesome because of it. The only thing I can suggest is periodic training sessions for current employees to keep them up to date and properly trained on new policies and procedures.

    Pros

    Discount Card, great prices on produce

    Cons

    This company is definitely about the bottom line. Hours are continually cut on a weekly basis. You never know from week to week what or when you will be working. They only do the schedule on the Friday before the next work week, which means you cannot schedule any outside work activities due to not knowing when you will be working. They short staff and then call you and expect you to come in and work because they couldn't schedule accordingly. They expect you to come in even if your sick. Benefits are only available to those who work more than an average of 32 hours a week over 6 months time. So they cut your hours so that you cannot get any benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people who work hard for you and keep your business going. How can you expect people to live on less than 20 hours a week. It forces you to have to get another job. Wouldn't you rather have them working just for you?

    Pros

    They seem to be a well organized company and customer oriented.

    Cons

    I was only a bagger so I got carts and in Phoenix sunmer it was 110 out and even when there was nothing to get outside the manager wouldn't let us stay inside and told us to wait for something to do outside instead of bag or clean while we wait.

    Pros

    15% discount, employee appreciation events (if they bother to remember), sick leave, vacation payout. full time employees (30+ hrs) can apply for benefits after 6 months employment

    Cons

    due to high turnover, often asked to supplement other departments in addition to your current tasks (which is largely undo able considering the pace of the store). often understaffed, hours cut arbitrarily. management changes nearly every 8-10 months. in store politics often has one or a number of people as scapegoats for management. managers blow hot and cold providing a hostile work environment. raises are once a year at a maximum of 5% (they never do the maximum) of your hourly wages. -i once had a manager attempt to make me sign a draft of my raise paperwork without the head manager's signature in order to adjust the numbers later to reduce my pay. very evil.

    Pros

    Some good coworkers, good discount, decent hours of operation. Some potential to advance.

    Cons

    Favoritism, nepotism, fear of terminating poor employees for fear of being declared a racist company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees who know what they are doing. In a new region, it would be beneficial to listen to those who were transplanted from successful regions. Promote from within, and stop hiring store management who have no idea what our culture is all about. It is unfair to them when they are set up to fail, and unfair to folks who are more deserving when you do this. Promote people into positions that know what they are doing.
