    Current Employee - Grocery Manager in Ronkonkoma, NY

    I have been working at Waldbaum full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours, vacation and sick time. Good group of coworkers

    Cons

    Company is always in financial strain. I was laid off due to store closures. Management tends to micro manage and some will always want their way regardless of right or wrong. Management takes all decision making skills away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasteful spending and get back to the basics of selling groceries. Don't make it a major ordeal, just provide great service, good prices and clean stores.

    Not a bad place for a starting young part timer around the area.

    Pros

    People are friendly, the overall store appearance is nice, work time is flexible, has sick pay.

    Cons

    Salary are pretty low, small benefit if you are lucky. The company sometime cut employs' hours for no reason. The store managers do not really care about employs unless they got complain from them.

    Good healthcare, no money!

    Current Employee - Cashier  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Cashier in New York, NY

    I have been working at Waldbaum part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are great if you have no healthcare, almost full dental and optical. While not many places accept the insurance many walk-in clinics do, and co-pay is relatively low.

    Cons

    Crap pay, no chance for a raise or promotion, rude and incompetent customers, expect a maximum of 30 hours a week and an average of 16, even with that few hours expect to be scheduled on every holiday and day you request off and have to argue to get it, and even with this job in order to afford a car and not starve you must have another source of income or be on welfare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of your employees are on or need welfare, and yet they slave away on a daily basis just to hope they can eat next week. Give them the pay the deserve!
