    I worked at Royal Ahold full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are above average, pretty much a recession proof company, room to grow if you are willing to re-locate to Carlisle.

    Cons

    Since the re-organization under the Ahold USA banner things have been in disarray and show little sign of improving any time soon. Pay is below average, overtime is kept to a minimum, pay raises are laughable at best. Job security is a concern at times.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, hire help desk associates with at least some computer literacy or train the ones you do have. Pay people what they are worth, give raises that are on par with the cost of living.

    I have been working at Royal Ahold full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits to the employees. Ahold provides many events to show appreciation to their staff including free lunches throughout the year, GM sales where everything is $.50 as well as monthly free Store brand item

    Cons

    The PTO and Vacation offered is behind in times compared to other companies. I only had to sick days after my 90 days and vacation starts after a year and is only a week. Therefore hourly associates basically have to be on their death bed to take off work. The company promotes work/life balance but some managers do not care about what is happening in your personal life. Therefore if you have a sick kid, it is a problem.

    The pay does not match up to the cost of living. Therefore the company should restructure their pay grades as some people cannot live off of the pay they are making.

    Advice to Management

    Better Pay Structure. More training for managers on how to deal with personnel issues such as people pointing out that a certain employee is constantly making mistakes and may need additional training. A manage needs to react to this issue not let it continue because they do not like conflict.
