I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

4 day work weeks, little supervisor interaction, good way to get in shape.

Cons

Very little advancement, mandatory 5th days, never out at 530, always later, they will fire you for the smallest safety violation. Goal times are manipulated when its busy to get selectors to work faster.

Advice to Management

Treat the people who make your business work like gold, instead of dirt. If it wasn't for the selectors, you wouldn't have a business. Stick to what you say and understand that in a job as physically demanding as CNS, injuries will happen, dont make it so people are too scared to say anything in fear of their jobs.

    Money is competitive
    Large company, room to move up.

    Lackluster management. The schedule is brutal so most are just in it for the paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more structure.

    I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are a growing business and are generally good about giving raises every year. The company as a whole donates a lot to charities. There is a free clinic with some free prescriptions.

    Cons

    The company values are very archaic. They have begun to give laptops to full-time employees and told that you should "consider" taking it home every night. They do not believe in working from home even if it a blizzard outside their philosophy is if you are not at work you are not working. Life-Work balance in non-existent and it is hard to transfer teams or raise in your position.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to acknowledge your employees. Having more than 5 paid holiday days would be nice and not ridiculing those that take the days before or after would be a nice perk.
