    Flexible work schedule and great company values.

    Pros

    Work environment was typically fun, they were flexible with the scheduling, and everyone was overall very enjoyable.Company values were also good too, there were a lot of company events to volunteer or to have fun outside of work.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for personal growth, promotions based upon length of employment and who you know in higher-up management. You do not receive any benefits as a part time employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work with the culture but look throughout the organization for qualified employees for promotions.

    Former Employee - Management in Amarillo, TX

    I worked at United Supermarkets full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with different demographics of team members and guests allows you to meet all different types of people to network with.
    It is a great job to develop you for the next one specifically the financial industry (banking) or vendors that supply the grocery chain. Depending on what side of the business you work in, customer service or a department role.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid.
    It is hard to attract a good pool of applicants with the compensation in its current state.
    Raises should be based on performance and not on hours worked.
    Management is required to do too much in such a small window of time, and doesn't allow them to make creative decisions to problems they are faced with but rather just run with the situation and hope it turns out well.
    Promotions are political. When you apply for an upper management position most times they have a person in mind for the position even before the interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust your management and team member compensation. Those that work in the stores deserve to be compensated for the poor work-family balance when working the retail hours required of them.

    I have been working at United Supermarkets full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The "family" that has owned United for almost 100 years cares a great deal about their employees. Benefits with this company are awesome. Most of the management at United embrace the culture set by Matt Bumstead. He is a Christian and not afraid to share it. His team of leaders are amazing.

    Cons

    United was bought by Albertson's and things are changing. Matt Bumstead is no longer there and neither is his spirit of joy and unconditional love for his team.

    I worked at United Supermarkets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My deli managers were awesome people and were great to work with. Always made sure that you were taken care of, and that you were still happy with your job. Coworkers were great as well.

    Cons

    The "customer is always right" policy is in full effect here. Be prepared to be shot down from a store manager if a customer says you did something wrong, even if you didn't. Learn to just deal with the general public and forget about defending your case. Raises were given every evaluation, but evaluations were far between. Also, be prepared to be burned and cut almost daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, do not assume they're liars for defending their case against irate customers.

    Pros

    The people here are kind and it truly does feel like one big family.
    A great company to grow in as they promote from within.

    Cons

    Small company so not as many opportunities to move around in the support center but would be worth the wait!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to show your care for your employees.
