    Pros

    I'm guaranteed 40 hours. The health insurance is very affordable thanks to being single and the union of course. The pay is pretty good. Most people that I work with are decent human beings unlike the management upstairs.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Management not too personable. No good morning or a simple thank you. There is a lot expected from you with very limited help due to payroll cuts. Certain people are very set in their own ways thanks to the union.

    Advice to Management

    Just a simple hello or thank you goes a long way. I like to feel appreciated.

    Pros

    Good benefits and employee discounts. Sick and vacation time is also apart of the package.

    Cons

    Work and life balance is any thing but balanced. Some upper management lack leadership skills and positive reinforcement tactics.

    Pros

    The hours are flexible enough and you get paid for major holidays. Work itself is mindless once you learn your position.

    Cons

    The union. Unnecessary to take money out of my pay check each week just in case I need someone to defend my job. My actions themselves should defend my job.

    Disregard for human life. I understand it is retail, but if driving conditions are not safe for the rest of the state than why should employees put their lives at risk to sell $3 worth of eggs.

    Greedy. Corporate has no clue what's going on a retail level and sets unrealistic expectations for store managers to hit.

    Advice to Management

    Work on work/life balance. Set realistic goals with each department. Stop cutting hours and expect more work to be done, it is physically impossible and exhausting.

    Fair company to work for. And possible to move up relatively quickly if you want.

    Pros

    Quarterly raises, associates you work with are pleasant and down to earth.

    Cons

    Training is skimmed over, and is usually where a lot of problems stem from. Employees being improperly trained on how to perform.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to train each and every individual. Incompetence usually starts at the top of this company and trickles down to mid level management and so on to associates.

    Management and customers were always very friendly

    Talk to CDHs about having more professional attitudes

    Pay
    Expectations are too high considering the lousy pay

    Advice to Management

    Realize that most workers in their 20 aren't there because they're stupid - they're there because they are in college.

    Pros

    The managers are nice from around the entire store. I had an issue with a coworker and the managers were very quick to respond. The schedule is very flexible so long as you have it written a week before.

    Cons

    They are Union and that means not much pay raises trickle in unless the union agrees. Also their full timers are considered supervisors so it muddles the roles sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Clarify the role differences between a manager and a full time employee.
