    "Below Average for First Job"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Grocery Stock Clerk in Bainbridge, OH

      I worked at Heinens part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Easy to get hired.

      Cons

      Too many managers. No room for growth. Treat entry-level employees very poor. Managers talk bad about employees behind their backs. Stressful environment. Super long hours for young age

      I worked at Heinens full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      - The management and owners seem to care very much about their employees - Closed on holidays - Good hours - Good sense of team with those around you - Overall relaxed environment, which is unusual for the grocery industry - Good pay

      Cons

      No advancement to be had. At all. If you're hired to be, say, a produce clerk... you're only going to be a produce clerk. There's no room for advancement because there aren't enough openings. Couple that with the fact that the company has a stacked bench and it makes it just even more cutthroat. It seems no one is advancing unless someone above has been submarined by someone...

      Advice to Management

      Just be straight with your employees - there aren't opportunities for advancement here. Please continue to treat your employees well - no one can take away from you that you are the best in the business at treating your employees well. But at least be honest with them instead of playing mind games.

      I have been working at Heinens

      Pros

      Employer is very family oriented.

      Cons

      There's no room for advancement. Employees have been in the same position they started in when they have worked there for 10+ years.

      I have been working at Heinens

      Pros

      good part time job while in school. relaxed atmosphere. Not many pros. However if you are making a career out of grocery retail this company is a better employer than their competitors

      Cons

      no room for advancement, even after completing a four year degree. Most of management is not at all professional, and many are not formally educated. Nepotism is common place.

      Advice to Management

      promote from within and take the most qualified person for the job not someones friend or relative. Take the younger employees more seriously and try to entice the college students to stay post graduation.
