    Pros

    I really enjoy working with our customers. My boss makes my job fun and gives me the chance to improve the dairy department.

    Cons

    Out of stock deliveries from the warehouse. When I try to order a product then the product begins to show that it is out of stock and is unavailable for delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say about their job.

    Pros

    Benefits are great when you become salary.
    Three weeks vacation after you become salary. Steady paycheck. Quarterly bonus is something to look forward to. 1 hour lunch. Five percent of all purchases.

    Cons

    60 or more hours a week. it's retail, so no weekends off or holidays unless requested. If you are a single mom the job as a grocery manager might not be for you.

    Pros

    The regular customers are great like a family. Some of the managers will help when issues arise and pay is OK.

    Cons

    Favorites to other managers, if you aren't a brown noser you will not go far with this company. Hard workers are looked over everyday for the lazy ones because they are will to kiss butt.

    Advice to Management

    We just had 3 positions open up for Co Directors in the company in one district and none of the jobs were posted. They took who they wanted to put in these positions without interviewing anyone. They even took someone who use to work for the company and left because he didn't like the District Director where he was and hired him back as one of the Co Directors in a different district.
    Someone in HR needs to look into this and make it right before someone gets a lawyer involved.
