    I worked at Lunds & Byerlys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    wonderful company...good people to work for. Products and customer service were always top of the line. Always a joy to work there.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything I did not love about this company...I should not have moved on ! But I wanted to try something new and different and it did not go as planned.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change anything I am most grateful to have worked for you. Always loved your emphasis on store made products... kind of like homemade with a twist.

    Great grocery chain that really cares about making sure the customer is treated well.

    Corporate management has been here way too and still conduct business as a small mom & pop business. They want change yet are very resistant to change. Leads by intimidation. Communication within the business is awful.

    Time for some high-level leaders to exit the company and bring in some fresh thinkers.
