    I have been working at Roundy's Supermarkets part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starts at 15.50/hr, decent part time flexibilty, wear what you want, work inepedently, listen to music while you work

    Cons

    Work is monotonous and dull, physically difficult, and wears your body down. Mandatory overtime every shift, up to 3 hours. You're constantly working against a timer on your orders, so you have to move fast and can never really relax. Everyone is going for speed, so it's an extremtly unsafe work enviroment

    Advice to Management

    Relax the labor standard times so people don't have to rush so much. Less people will get hurt.

    Pros

    Friendly people, good working conditions, good compensation and okay benefits. There are a decent amount of opportunities for promotion or advancement.

    Cons

    Inexperienced, contradictory and confusing leadership with no communicated plan or vision for the future. May improve after merger with Kroger is complete.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone because another employee doesn't know how to work well with others and you need the new hire to run interference, you've already made 2 bad decisions. If there are people refusing to work with someone and nothing is done to the person causing problems, you have serious issues. This one position, a manager, literally threw temper tantrums at work and nothing was done. But Chairman Bob will fire people willy nilly, if you just happen to be in his cross hairs at the wrong time, away you go. There is favoritism and backstabbing going on simultaneously. I know of 4 people fired for no reason; they were all solid, productive employees. Bob only cares about Willis & Stein and Mariano's. He looked down at Milwaukee like it was a slum.

    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hourly wage and good union. There's plenty of mandatory overtime at time and a half so you'll make decent enough money.

    Cons

    You're scheduled for 9 hour shifts but in my half a year of working there, I worked 9 hours or less a grand total of 0 times. There will almost always be 2-3 hours of mandatory overtime, so my shifts were generally from 11am through 10-11pm. Almost impossible to have a life outside of work with those hours.

    Very physically demanding job. You'll lift thousands of pounds of product a day.

    Upper management doesn't give a darn about employees. The pay is decent but only because of the union. They'd pay you pennies if they could get away with it.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your workers. Luckily I was single at the time, but many aren't. I have no idea how some of those guys balance family life with those hours.

    Pros

    As a whole Roundy's offers competitive salaries, benefits, and flexible work schedules. The employees who work there are talented and handle strong pressures from management well. There are also new opportunities since the merger with Kroger Co.

    Cons

    Eve though there is room to advance most of the opportunities seem to be outside the local office. There is still a hierarchy based off of likability of management while others go unnoticed.
