    I worked at Randalls (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Friendly Employees
    Lots of job opportunities

    Cons

    Frustrating management that never works with you, always accuses you of something going wrong. Talks down to you, overall lowers the moral in the store, makes everyone feel worthless and forces everyone to quit. I won't say which location, but its outside Austin.

    Advice to Management

    Take a class on people skills, seriously lacking in that category.

    I have been working at Randalls part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loveeee my customers, Randall's has many loyal customers that you get to know and see day after day. Agreeable with any time off requests. I had to cut back to only weekends during school and they worked with my schedule perfectly.

    Cons

    We don't get the tips, no raises, hardly any advancement opportunities, bad management.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, if you treat them well, they'll do the same in return. MORE HOURS. My department barely has someone all the time, we're required with out Starbucks contract to have a MINIMUM of two employees at a time, we hardly ever have that due to a lack of hours.

    "My time in the bakery department"

    I worked at Randalls part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay for a job that required no previous experience.
    Overall, it was a friendly and positive environment to be around.

    Cons

    My issues were personally with how my time went there rather than cons of working there.

    Outside of basic training to use a cash register I wasn't really trained to do much in the bakery due to how my shifts were scheduled. This was mainly due to a work injury the person in charge of the bakery had shortly prior to me getting hired. The temp who took over came from another store about 30 minutes away and figured closing on my own wouldn't be so bad if most of the work was done prior to me getting there. The issue is I never learned how to do anything early on. I had no idea where things were stored or how to use certain equipment such as the bread slicing machine. When I was scheduled to come in, 1 or 2 co workers had an hour left of work in which they were busy trying to finish their own work. I was lost the first two weeks and had to seek help from other departments which thankfully were very helpful and understanding of my situation.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the new employees get trained well. Of my month working in the bakery department, 2 of those weeks simply sucked because I had no idea what I was doing and no guidance. It wasn't until after I talked to a manager about things not working out and putting in my 2 weeks notice that the old bakery head was back and what a difference that made. I learned more in a day with her than I did in a week on my own with help from other departments.
