    Pros

    Fun, cool company to work for! I worked at both a distribution center and at the corporate offices in Skokie. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone really gets along well. The company culture is great and the business model is awesome.

    Cons

    Pay scale was less than it should be for a company backed by a huge conglomerate; this was my only gripe.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I felt that the senior management did a great job. There were a few vice presidents I worked under during my tenure that needed to go and eventually senior management saw this and they were were let go. I left only because I did not feel I was being paid highly enough for the education and experience I had.

    Pros

    Very casual and friendly atmosphere
    All employees are talented
    Ideas and free thinking encouraged
    Managers and execs genuinely care about employees.
    Really big on promoting from within

    Cons

    Benefits have been a bit of a roller coaster ride and the cost goes up significantly every year. It pretty much feels like your annual merit increase is lost on the increasing cost of health insurance.

    Pros

    The pay was great seeing that you needed no specialized skills to do the job.
    You weren't constantly micromanaged
    The company cared about its drivers

    Cons

    Getting time off as a driver was difficult. (blackout dates, limited time off)
    Mistakes led to termination.
    Driver turnover was high.

    Advice to Management

    Improving the PTO procedures would make drivers more comfortable.
    Being more transparent at the lower management level.

    I worked at Peapod part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I LOVED PEAPOD. It wasn't a place for a career, but for just cash on the side while I was in school this was great. It was very laid back, bosses were understanding. For the money it doesn't get easier than peapod.

    Cons

    Usually saturday nights were busy, you worked till 12-1

    Advice to Management

    keep it up
