    I have been working at Randalls full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees are friendly. I like working with the vendors and having control over my schedule. My work schedule is good, I go in early and get off early (5am to 1pm).

    Cons

    They cut hours every week which doesn't allow employees the appropriate time to get their work done properly. Some full-time employees are getting less that 40 hour a week.

    Pros

    You get to work alone most of the time. Your schedule will be the same unless you want to work more hours.

    Cons

    Certain managers can be cold hearted, crass & it's starting to get to the point of them being abusive. Managers that are higher up are actually pretty nice & undersanding.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take your anger out on your hard working employees, give clear understanding.

    I have been working at Randalls full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits-pension plan, 401k, discounted purchases. Plus the usual, insurance vacation, personal days. Usually a clean air conditioned environment. Good coworkers.

    Cons

    As older seasoned managers leave(or disappear), they are replaced with new (hired from the outside) people who have little if any experience in the grocery industry, and don't understand that customers come first, and you need trained employees to serve them. If you are missing a skilled person you can't replace them with a sacker, and say show them how and make it work.
    There are still a few good ones left, but not many.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the history of Randalls, not Albertsons(which failed here) to get an idea of what it was like. Teach managers to live customer service, and not talk about it. Hire and train enough employees to service the customers you still have. Send the Supervisory people to some Disney classes to see how it should be done.
