    I worked at Brookshire Brothers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Relatively stable employment.
    Decent pay.
    Decent benefits for full time employees.
    Fairly friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Right to work state and the company will take FULL advantage of that fact to their benefit.
    Make sure you have a good amount saved up in the event they decide to lay you off. To the elite management in the corporate office you are just a number try not to forget that.

    Advice to Management

    When you have honest, hard working, and dedicated employees treat them better than just a statistic. Getting rid of good employees to “try something different” and letting the stores they covered fall into bad states of disrepair makes absolutely no sense.

    I worked at Brookshire Brothers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a leader, having the privilege of taking care of the business & working in an office learning about money management & cash handling.

    Cons

    Having to close the store up between 9-10 PM & getting home late to three kids.
    Not being able to get my raise at my yearly evaluation.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with hours & allow the hours that need to be worked to be switched. I was set on a 2-Close shift no matter what & they did not allow me to switch in order to take better care of my personal schedule with my children.
    & not to promise raises at yearly evaluations if they can not truly be given.

    I worked at Brookshire Brothers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the job alot. Employees were like family. Great benefits.

    Cons

    I was hired on my first interview. They gave me 2wks before I started so I could train someone at my other job for the position I was leaving. I work at Brookshire Brothers for two months and they fired me because of my criminal back ground.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that I should not been hired before the results came back. I was honest on the application. Plus I quit my job for this job

    Good food, the work isn't too hard, usually the employees are friendly.

    Cons

    No room for growth, low pay, terrible inventory practices.

    If someone has been there 5+ years and they're still making the same amount of money as when they were hired...that could be a problem.

    I worked at Brookshire Brothers part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They'll keep you on as long as you do your job

    Cons

    Everything. It doesn't matter how long you have been with the company something always happens to make them cut your hours and force you to have to use your vacation to cover your bills instead of going on the vacation you planned with your family.

    Advice to Management

    Think of your employees they have bills to pay, and families too
