    Pros

    I like that they are flexible with scheduling for teenagers and hire many special needs workers. Employees are friendly.

    Cons

    You don't get paid a lot, as a sacker you have to take the customer out to their car which means a lot of walking.

    Listen to lower-level employees.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly company culture, and low-stress environment are all very positive factors related to working for United Supermarkets.

    Cons

    Among the cons of working here are the few opportunities for advancement, monotonous nature of the work, and virtually 0 in-store benefits as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Create more incentives for the team members who put in the most work. Employee motivation can be adversely affected when team members don't feel that the work they are putting in leads to better results.
