    I worked at Vons

    Pros

    Coworkers are great; there's such variety of personality types. The supervisors do their job well. Most of the customers at this location are good people. It was easy to get time off because the bookkeeper is generous.

    Cons

    The manager can be a little intense at times. The job starts at minimum wage and is capped about 30 cents above minimum wage or was when I worked here. There are opportunities for a promotion to an outside department such as the bakery, meat dept, floral, and up to the checkstand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get too stressed. People are only human. Not everyone has worked retail although they should.

    Pros

    Its a job keeps you employed .Paid weekly nothing else good to say.Great place to work if hired or promoted before 2003 beware they treat new employees and courtesy clerks like trash!!

    Cons

    Von's is become way too much like Walmart (actually worse)! As of march 2015 you get hired at Von's in Las Vegas you only make $7.25 at Walmart $9.00 with the same amount of hours.On January 2016 you will make $7.25 at Von's as new hire $10.00 at Walmart shameful!!! BTW Von's is union .Pay wage and benefits used to be a strength now its their weakness!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to new hires and old food clerks looking to rejoin Von's don't!!! If you have previous food clerk experience in the union don't tell Von's the'll make sure your only paid $7.25 to $8.00 as before you made $17.43 to $20.10.It takes corrupt management to drop someone at $7.25 knowing they can't live off that knowing you use to make $17.43.Worse of all is they expect maximum work at minimum pay shameful!!! I would never said this 20 yrs ago Von's you are officially a worse company to work for than Walmart you have stooped to all-time low congrats!!!

    Don't give raises to people that have 'settled' in a minimum wage job. Give raises to the people who work hard. Seniority definitely does not mean better worker.
