No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good hourly kind employees, excellent benefits, competitive salary. The job can be quite rewarding in the sense that you can please a customer by giving them whatever they want. Its nice to be able to help and make others happy. Im impressed with our quality standards as well.

Cons

Favoritism is blatantly obvious in all areas of the store! Always shorthanded in every area of the store. Store Manager, HR Manager are completely useless when it comes to approaching them with any problems or issues you may have. No training hours available for new hires. They are basically thrown into whatever and they either sink or swim with no guidance or training which is not only dangerous but costly for the company. Workload is overwhelming everyday because of understaffing issues.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like our customers we are important too. Give available training hours to those who need them. Relax the attendance policy on snow days! Listen to concerns and issues that one may have and sincerely take note and respond within a reasonable amount of time. Discipline the employees AND managers that actually need it. Oh, and for god sake is it too much to ask to have clean available paper towels in the public restrooms to dry your hands?

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great pay, $10/hr for cashier/lot attendant responsibilities, good atmosphere and the managers are competent. The location and work shifts are satisfactory.

    Cons

    Sometimes, you don't recieve adequate feedback about your performance. Advancement within the company itself should be more structured and fair.

    Advice to Management

    Prices for good are somewhat higher than other retailers, but the way the employees are treated makes up for any mishaps. The pay here is higher than in any other chain grocery store in the area and I haven't seen anyone complaining yet. Leadership is competent
