    Pros

    Beautiful new store, experienced management, nice neighborhood feel, 401(k) option after 4 months, medical option.

    Cons

    This is a new concept store for Raley's. The small store footprint and newness of offerings and approach creates a constant feeling of figuring things out as you go along. If you like being part of creating something new, this could be a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Your people could contribute more if you listened more.

    I have been working at Raley's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Kenworth trucks, pension, great benefits at low cost. This is a driver job, not a lumper/driver job. Can’t find many of those anymore. Been in distribution jobs for 15 years. Nothing beats Raleys transportation position.

    Cons

    Might be a bit low on compensation, but nothing that is detrimental. I try to look at the pension as an offset to the compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Not much. Maybe communicate to employees that the future is secure, and there are plans for long term service to the community.
