    I have been working at Waldbaum (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Responsibility, benefits ..friendly coworkers..clean store. Helpful staff. Great career experience. Stores seem to be improving.

    Cons

    Sub par pay, micro management from corporate. I hope to see the company do better in the next few years..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually lower the prices.. don't just say you did.. let the managers manage specific to the area they are in... listen to your workers. . and see the company get back to the top of the supermarket business. Get back to volume sales and not high mark ups.

    I have been working at Waldbaum full-time (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.

    Pros

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