  1.  

    Good salary and benefits, but not conducive to creativity

    Current Employee - Assistant Director of Communications in Staten Island, NY
    Current Employee - Assistant Director of Communications in Staten Island, NY

    I have been working at UFCW International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay
    Solid Benefits
    Good amount of paid time off

    Cons

    Rigid leadership
    Not receptive to new ideas
    Secretive, lack of communication with employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're not always right. Take some advice from the employees you put in position to do the jobs they are qualified to do.

    I worked at UFCW International full-time

    Pros

    There's plenty of work to be done to help people. The pay is decent and there are good benefits (see health care issue below). There are a lot of good people working for this company.

    Cons

    They provide health benefits but place many obstacles in your way to actually getting things covered. Family coverage covers very little for the family. It's basically emergency and catastrophic coverage, not wellness care. It's a very antiquated health plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders need to lead and make decisions. Having managers be indecisive or purposefully keep members in the dark is no way to service people. It's abundantly clear that management doesn't care about their members. Locals are giving away benefits with each successive contract which only lowers the bar for other locals. Bring the health plan into the 21st century and offer wellness care to families.

    I have been working at UFCW International

    Pros

    The benefits can not be beat.

    Cons

    Bad internal communication and lots of changes that happen without hardly any notice to all employees. Most of the time I don't know what's going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the leadership does a great job inspiring the cause and making it seem worthwhile to be doing what we do, but I work too much.
