    Pros

    Schedule can change so you can have different days off each week.

    Cons

    Schedule can change so you can have different days off each week.
    If someone calls in sick you have to work harder as it is difficult to call people in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us our days off so we will not have to call in sick

    Former Employee - Floral in Fountain Valley, CA

    I worked at Stater Bros. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Let's see. Work around your school schedule for those college kids. Raises, at least 25 hours a week, weekly pay, extra pay Sunday, time and a half holidays, off Christmas day with pay. Can request a day off and most likely have it off. Vacation pay, sick pay, one year pin if you like pins, talk on intercom, bail cardboard. Awesome down to earth coworkers! Caroline!!! Sheila!! Ariel!!!! Hector!! Veronica!!! Derek!!! Maria! Cena! Sofia!! It really depends on what store you are at because most stores could have more drama then others. Lastly, Learn new skills that will look good on future resume.

    Cons

    Management. oh yes Stater Brothers finest. That is sarcasm. They talk down to their workers. I managed to dodge a lot of management when they are not in a good mood. Customers may be unpleasant. Weird odors almost everywhere. Sewage, Garlic, customers stinky body odor. ten minute breaks and no discount on food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management always room for improvement. Communicate with employees better.

    Pros

    Topped out pay for a clerk is pretty good, paid vacations

    Cons

    Some managers and coworkers aren't to bright or hardworking. Pay is based off of hours worked so it doesn't promote hard work. Union propaganda

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites, learn how to write a decent schedule, and be consistent.

    Pros

    Great first job
    You can make $20 an hour doing easy work
    Good mix of fun people to work with
    Store managers are generally easy to work with
    Jack Brown's approach to customer service and traditional values made this company great.

    Cons

    Expect to work every holiday and frequent nights/weekends.
    Upper management is a little out of touch with day-to-day store operations.
    The work is often mindless and can be frustrating at times.
    There is little room to advance into other areas of the company, unless you know somebody.
    Too much focus on reducing labor = reducing hours for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the store employees! They are the people customers see on a regular basis, Happy employees = Happy customers.
    Consider providing additional benefits for key carriers, they have a lot of responsibility and do not get paid any more than a cashier.

    Pros

    Had a wonderful service/deli manager. Benefits are good and they are really flexible when it comes to scheduling if you are in school. Good part-time place while in college.

    Cons

    If you don't ask for time off two weeks in advance you most likely won't get the day(s) off. Some of the co-workers can and will get lazy so you have to pick up their slack. I noticed that management's competency varies from store to store (Fountain Valley was one of the better ones).
