Pros

Was a job to earn a wage albeit a minmum wage. Felt like a safe work environment. Most employees seemed to get alone with one another.

Cons

Very uncaring team of "management." Had values which seemed better suited to the 50s in terms of gender equity and age intelligence. The owner seemed rather stingy in terms of paying and treating the employees.

Advice to Management

More "liberal" so to speak in terms of social equity and a more caring and communicative environment for all employees. Happy workers = more laborious, efficient workers.

    I have been working at Shop 'n Save part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits from the unionized positions are above average for retail, and include termination protection against any non-theft disciplines.

    Cons

    Advancement is non-existent, Communication between upper level management and new processes is particularly damaging to the performance of the business

    Advice to Management

    We had three employees at the store level of the business with financial/accounting degree(s) and/or a masters degree that did not or have yet to be promoted into positions that the company is openly seeking individuals for. They instead get asked to fill jobs at what is now considered a fairly common starting hourly pay within the state. Two have since filled jobs at online or box store competitors, with the third member having commented that they are currently looking at other opportunities as well.

    Career Opportunities 1 star - Advancement is almost non-existent. Most who aspire to move up stop at the assistant store director or store director position, and it takes 7-10 years for most to get there.

    Comp & Benefits 4 Star - Compensation is a 2 star, Benefits are a 5 star. If you need good benefits to consider a retail job, then this job is near the top in the St Louis area for retail.

    Work/Life Balance 3 Star - To get hours you need to take calls on short notice. However, many department managers do work with you if you need time off, and coworkers always take care of one another in times of crisis.

    Senior Management 2 Star - Store directors are 3 or 4 star, top end management 2 star, and district managers are greatly varied in their skills, roughly from 1 star to 3 star.

    Culture & Values 3 Star - The culture at each store is a 4 star, the culture/values of the business are 2 star.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, good first time job, and teaches some basic retail skills.

    Cons

    None to little growth within the company, mostly part-timers because full-time is spread through the stores.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting better than the people who work for you.
