    I have been working at Peapod full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Peapod is an excellent concept, great benefits, starting pay is not bad, bonuses, ability to advance, you can pick the shift you want to work, accessible and easy to get to, free parking, union membership after probationary 90 days, dress is causal and comfortable

    Cons

    You are asked to stay late with no notice. This is not the job for you if you don't like being on your feet, unable to stand physical labor, can't follow orders, aren't physically fit, aren't capable of multi-tasking, can't work efficiently, and unable to handle the cold temps as well as lots of noise

    Advice to Management

    Communication could be better, everybody needs to be on the same page

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of new people. That's about it

    Cons

    Management never listens to any of the shoppers. All they care about is making sure the orders are done. They also never enforce any of their rules. You have to be a fast shopper, but there really is no point to this. It's like you're doing half the work while everybody else slacks off. Additionally, people come and go through this job every day. It's like there is someone new working there every time I was there. During the 2 years I worked there, I saw over 100 people come and go. The turnover rate is very high. This is probably the reason why management doesn't care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the management would listen to the employees for once. They don't care about any of their employees. They make working at Peapod a miserable time. The 2 years I worked there was just horrible.

    I worked at Peapod (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job pays ok. There are some management that want to help. There's no many pros sorry. If you want quick money then work there.

    Cons

    The jobs itself could be managed better. There are some great people there but the bad ones makes thing difficult. I hope corporate comes and weed out the ones that's treating people so bad. Your pay check are late or incorrect. They are some managers that talked down on the employee's. Like I said if they weed out the bad ones things will get better.

    Advice to Management

    Work together as a team. If you see another manager mistreating an employee don't turn the other cheek say something. Employee's work hard there be there support system .

    I worked at Peapod full-time

    Pros

    It was interesting to see all of the familiar Giant Food store products and knowing that you are basically grocery shopping for those who are unable.

    Cons

    The warehouse is so cold. Had to wear layers of clothing, hats, and gloves. It's a mess! Food items all over floor and poorly stocked. Overtime is mandatory and you won't know if you'll have to stay until 30-40 mins before your shift is over. Imagine it's almost time to go home and they say you have to stay another 2 hours

    Advice to Management

    Better pay, set shifts

    I worked at Peapod full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overtime easy to get
    On your own, not really hassled by supervisors

    Cons

    High turnover, management reflects why
    Low pay for the work you do, but the tips can help

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul every single person and put in people who know how to manage and treat employees. In turn you'll bring in people who want to work there and the whole culture will change. your operation is a mess. You are bleeding money and have a huge revolving door of employees. You are not immune to competition, and it is only a matter of time before a better option comes along and takes all of your business.

    Pros

    Good pay for simple enough work, some co-workers are fun to work with, flexible schedual

    Cons

    Where to start... they only increased pay for part time and full time (starting at $10.25 to $12.00, not for temps who are mostly college students like myself so I had to switch to part time and have to deal with it even though I know damn well i work harder than a lot of my co-workers), supervisors do nothing but tell you to do stuff and won't lift a finger to help, several times they rolled their eyes at me because I wanted to know where help was needed, out of date warehouse means higher workload for a warehouse that can't even support what we have now, they hire basically anyone so a lot of high schoolers work there and they don't do anything half the time, some orders are absolutely absurd (an example, 'how am I going to fit 20 apples in a tote that is already full?'), and management expects that you know everything about every job and gets mad when you don't do something right because you don't know what you're doing.

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees and update your warehouse. Paying more is good, but expecting a higher workload in return is not going to happen.

    I have been working at Peapod full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, but forced to be union

    Cons

    There is little leadership and poor training, when I need help from a leader, they are hard to find. The start pay is too small to live off of and raises are few and small and far between

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved, be less negative and more supporting .there is little motivation to work harder if you know your just a number and no one appreciates your hard work
