Pros

You get to meet new people in different departments. You will be trained to do new things. You will also get a paycheck every 2 weeks.

Cons

Pay is lower than Hy Vee, which is their competitor. Stores are almost always understaffed, so that makes it very hard. Management is rather snobbish too.

Advice to Management

This company really emphasizes customer service, but they don't treat their employees as well. Sure, customers provide our paycheck, but without us employees, the customers couldn't get food. So it goes both ways. At this company they like to use the phrase "valued customer" quite a lot but never once did I hear them say "valued employee". Basically I recommend that if a person wants grocery experience, that they try Hy Vee and not B&R.

    I worked at B&R Stores full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Eventually, everyone ends up knowing everyone. For the most part, management has your back, unless you are in the wrong. Decent pay for experience.

    Cons

    If you work in Omaha or council bluffs.. It doesn't seem like the home office (Lincoln, NE) cares so much about your concerns. Way different in Lincoln though.

    Advice to Management

    Of course there is always going to be a bad apple in the barrel, but for the most part, I would have liked to have seen the home office get involved in certain situations as to where it was just brushed off as they looked the other way.
