    I have been working at Dierbergs Markets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Customer interaction
    A job well done/feeling accomplished
    Teamwork with co-workers

    Cons

    Unwanted drama/tension among coworkers that has nothing to do with the workplace or the job.
    Not the best plan/system during the holidays for increased food orders being taken or going out/picked up.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to have conversations with individual employees to address any issues with Co- workers then have a group meeting with co-workers, explaining that non-job related drama/opinions will not be accepted. The job workspace should be drama/tension free as much as possible.

    Pros

    Employees are friendly and the job is easy once you get the hang of it.

    Cons

    Customers are rude, it's usually the same ones every week since they are long-time customers. The part-time employees will screw you over at certain stores because of seniority. Don't make this a career for you at this place unless you are a full-time manager. That is the only way you can make a living off of working here.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut the department hours to where you don't have enough help to do everything.

    Pros

    decent hours and reasonable workload

    Cons

    extremely toxic environment. they say they are a nice environment but that's only if they like you. senior leaders and management are out for themselves. do not trust anyone and watch your back. there's a reason so many long term people have left and nobody seems to care.
    poor pay. crappy benefits. not enough resources.

    Advice to Management

    this company is going downhill fast. start listening and stop making excuses. stop shutting people down. there's a reason people stop speaking up becuase they are constantly shut down and made to feel stupid. definitely not the culture or environment bob wanted it to be and if he new what was going on he would be mortified
