    I worked at Nash-Finch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was able to move up in the company starting as a cashier to a department head relatively quickly, albeit it with a lot of hard work and dedication on my part, but it was rewarded.

    Cons

    In the end, I had just gotten tired of dealing with personality conflicts with the store manager, who couldn't keep things professional, on top of that, i was driving an hour each way to put up with her. It just wasn't worth it to me when i could change career fields, and work five minutes from my home, and not have to deal with her anymore. It's too bad, before her, i had worked with many store managers that i liked immensely.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff respectfully, and especially when you are new to the job, respect the great job and hard work that they are doing and have been doing priir to you getting there!

    I worked at Nash-Finch full-time

    Pros

    Small Finance team so you had a lot of exposure to the C level staff, also got to work with the VPs of the other departments

    Cons

    No focus on technology, had to fight for months to get a second monitor for my team of financial analysts. Other staff had been there for 20+ years and would purposely stop change.

    Advice to Management

    Review the roles and personalities of people who have been in the same role for 10+ years and see if they have done anything proactive in the past 5 years, if not, let them go.

    Pros

    Before the merge the company was great - there was a lot of longevity in the associates and within the segments all departments worked together.

    Cons

    After the merge the culture changed and many jobs were relocated to Grand Rapids Michigan.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be so positive about the merge, sometimes change is hard.
