    Pros

    There was honestly nothing good about the company. The work itself was okay but the upper management was pretty and the workers were all miserable.

    Cons

    Everything. They took out they're frustrations on low level workers. No one was happy. No one is paid enough.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take out your problems on your workers. Pull your weight.

    I worked at Albertsons Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Getting the days off you want is pretty easy.
    -Hiring process is fast.
    -Weekly pay.

    Cons

    - Favoritism
    - Horrible work environment
    - Bullying Management
    - 40% chance you'll get paid for the over time you're asked to work.

    - They let customers sexually harass you openly.
    - You might get a break, but usually not you have to figure it out yourself.
    - Lazy Management
    - Underpaid for great experience, references, and work.
    - No hope for advancement unless your in the "Popular Group"
    - Lots of drama followed by ill advised inner store dating which turns ugly most of the time. Often uncomfortable to be around.
    - Equipment is over 15 - 20 years old and breaks almost all the time.
    - Even if you're popular, you're still treated like scum.

    Just no feeling of safety, support, or any trust at this employer. Maybe it's just this store, but come on now this is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe a class on how to treat your employees, weed out the bad management. Rethink your hiring process.

    But why bother, corporate doesn't care.

    Pros

    Works around your personal schedule. Days off are fair. Raises based on hours worked with one dollar increases per raise.

    Cons

    A lot of company changes that make daily operations more difficult for employees and assumes it will benefit customers. However, it makes everything difficult for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to fix things that are not broken. It frustrates both employees and customers. Do this and consider reducing your "convenience store" prices and there may be more progress.
