Pick 'n Save Warehouse Foods, the first of its kind in Milwaukee, was opened on March 25, 1975. The warehouse food store was an idea that had been tried and failed in other parts of the country prior to taking root in Milwaukee. Immediately, customers came by the thousands, requiring the local police department to be on constant duty just to direct traffic. It was evident by the end of the first week that Pick ‘n Save was here to stay. One month later, a second Pick ‘n Save store was opened.


Today, 93 Pick ‘n Save stores serve communities across Wisconsin. The Warehouse Foods concept is but a distant memory when shopping our beautiful current stores filled with fresh products, restaurant quality prepared foods, full service counters, meal ideas, food and beverage pairings and more. But the great prices and value of the early days continue to please customers.


In 2009, Pick ‘n Save’s parent company Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. was named Outstanding Regional retailer by Progressive Grocer. Contributing to the win was the company’s one-customer-at-a-time approach to service and a commitment to giving back to the communities where our customers and employees live and work.

    I worked at Pick N Save part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good experience. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and were very cooperative. Management was not too strict but just strict enough where everything was kept in line while not overstressing employees. Pay was good for a starter. Very reasonable with scheduling.

    Cons

    Kroger takeover rewrote a lot of rules which made it more strict. Otherwise very good company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good, friendly attitude and keep helping customers and employees alike. The work environment was spectacular.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pick N Save in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back a whole two months later. I spoke with a hiring manager and kinda did a phone interview. Then I scheduled a real interview. I went in for my interview and waited for about 15 minutes before the interviewer came. He was a very kind guy. He was very understanding and considerate. The interview took about 15-20 minutes. It went well and I got hired on the spot. I signed a bunch of papers and now I’m waiting to schedule an orientation.
