      Pros

      Most of the management seems to care for their employees.

      Cons

      They do not offer paid time off and vacation time - you are only granted vacation time. Also, the culture here is pretty dull. It is 2019, it is time for AWG to have a culture shock.

      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Associated Wholesale Grocers full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great pay and benefits. Great coworkers with tons of experience and knowledge. Worked with some awesome independent retailers.

      Cons

      Management is a good ole boy network stuck in doing things the way it worked in 1980. Warehouse operations are very poorly managed.

      Advice to Management

      Catch with current warehousing trends. Listen to the people you pay for their input. Change is hard but necessary.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Associated Wholesale Grocers full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Money, hours, fair share, can possibly move up

        Cons

        You will work until your body is beat up. Many times, you will be put in dangerous situations without a care from management. If a mistake is made on the company’s behalf, you will still be wrong. AWG is always right.

        Advice to Management

        Treat your employees like people instead of a number.
