      Doesn't Recommend
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Heinens

      Pros

      they offer time off for holidays. Union labor, friendly staff, Opportunities exist for advancement through the corporate structure.Purchasing discounts

      Cons

      A disjointed junior management structure. Staff discount is a long time coming. Difficult to find a way to articulate grievances .

      Advice to Management

      On arrival there was no direction offered for matters relating to health and safety. No indication of action to be taken in the event of eg a fire .No fire training ,no assembly points. This was completely alien to my European ideas and experience.Odd.

      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Heinens part-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Flexible scheduling for students. Compensation was higher than most other grocery chains.

      Cons

      Bonuses are based on reviews, so managers have incentive to grade you poorly despite your actual performance in order to improve their own bottom line. Bonuses for part-timers is real small anyway, so would have just preferred honest feedback instead of reviews that make you feel like crap.

    • "Heinen's is a great place for a high school student to work during the summer, although it was often overstaffed."

      I worked at Heinens

      Pros

      I was always treated fairly, was given as many hours as I wanted, had fun doing some of the job, and received tips when working parcel pick up.

      Cons

      The job is basically minimum wage, there was often nothing to do because it was severely overstaffed, and the management would usually step all over the grocery clerks.

      Advice to Management

      Management needs to understand that you cannot expect people to be busy all day when you are extremely overstaffed and treat the employees with more respect.
