    I have been working at Ralphs part-time

    Pros

    Things get very lax during the late hours

    Cons

    If you're at the bottom of the totem pole you're going to be treated exactly as one would expect of a newcomer

    Advice to Management

    Please learn to communicate with other managers more
    Also actually train your new guys rather than expect them to know right away

    I have been working at Ralphs part-time

    Pros

    Within retail (ie: CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, etc), Ralphs will have the better and more supportive management. Staff is kinder and more respectful towards one another.

    Cons

    They are understaffed with pharm techs, so depending on how busy a store you're placed at, shifts can get pretty hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more per diem pharm techs (for a float team) if you don't want to give full time employment.

    I worked at Ralphs part-time

    Pros

    Good first job to get some experience.

    Cons

    Sexist managers who made comments at coworkers and customers.
    Stalkers how followed me around both while I was in the parking lot pushing carts, and inside bagging.
    Tasks were often cleaning.

    Advice to Management

    Train managers on appropriate workplace behavior.

    I worked at Ralphs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have a union, it is hard to be fired if you worry about that. Flexible schedule at times.

    Cons

    Benefits took a tumble after the strike and the newer contracts were just terrible. I don't know where they find their managers but I experienced some really bad ones. Had to report one for being inappropriate. Very little pay for the amount of work they wanted us to do including cashiering (minimum wage at the time was $9 an hour) and we're handling customer transactions... it was hard 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent managers and look at other stores and what they do well and do the same or better.
