    I worked at Pick N Save part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like most jobs becoming friends with you coworkers makes the job more fun. The work was not too hard.

    Cons

    Pay was low and only went up $2 per hour in my 5 years. Work is very repetitive

    Advice to Management

    management is often too strict as far as just talking with coworkers or trying to make the job more fun. They need to lighten up so everyone is happier. No one wants to feel like they are working at Pick n' Slave

    Pros

    The work is easy and you will memorize 90% of the codes in 2 weeks or less. Fellow employees are fun to work with and talk to. It feels good to make customer's days more enjoyable.

    Cons

    Was paid $7.35 as a bagger and after working there for nearly 2 years only made $8.35. While other places grocery stores start off at $8-$10/hr

    I worked at Pick N Save (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Excellent benefits, likely required in order to maintain their skeleton crew

    Cons

    - Punitive sick policies (more than 5 days per year, you're gone)
    - Nasty management practices
    - Very little constructive, positive criticism, lots of negative, belittling criticism
    - The company, in order to save money, will skeleton-staff a store, putting 2 or more people's jobs on your shoulders and then belittle you if you do not fulfill their overtaxing demands
    - Punitive, humiliating discipline practices
    - Comfortable with allowing Hate Symbols to remain in work environment; I.E. swastikas carved into tables, racial/sexual slurs written in bathroom
    - Poor pay, certainly not enough to justify difficulty of job
    - Detached corporate management that foists additional work on already overworked employees, don't understand what's going on

    Advice to Management

    Roundy's was a poor company before in terms of how they treated their employees; ever since being bought by Kroger, the country's 2nd largest retailer, they've become worse. Understand that when you treat employees like trash they will *gladly* jump ship when a better opportunity arises and won't care about how it affects you; even if you blame them and insist there's nothing wrong with you, that doesn't change the truth - your management practices are vile.

    I'd *never* recommend working here to anyone, even my enemies.
