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

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of. Wages suck for the amount of work you do, that is if you are a hard worker and want to get product moving and keep customers happy. They keep you under 32 hours a week to not give you benefits and if you do get 32 or more it is only for a few weeks so they can keep you at part time. Stuck having to find extra job to make up the difference and thus stuck working 7 days a week.

    Cons

    Management. Keep you on the loop offering things to you that won't happen. Literally had a meeting with two managers who I told that I wanted full time and needed better pay, they agreed since I am a hard worker and a few weeks went by and my hours were increased to 32-34 with no increase in pay and working my behind off two different areas of the store (Frozen Dairy and Grocery) when brought up again had another meeting with one and was told the same thing over again. You really think people are that dumb? Soon as I get the chance I am out. Kroger has taken over and now the stores are hiring part time workers only. No career opportunities and 40 years old with no time to play games. I am sure they will find another person to fill the position but am also sure they will have a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to good workers to keep them, it will only backfire on you. We are not the part time teens you hire.

    I worked at Roundy's Supermarkets full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice downtown location. Minimal travel. Bought out by Kroger and now have job security.

    Cons

    No one knows how long their job will last now that the company has been bought out. Kroger has well experienced people in the home office who can do our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice. Much of the top management is being eliminated locally.

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

    Pros

    The pay was really good at the company with lots of overtime expected when I was there. They were gaining more accounts which meant more orders.

    Cons

    Never knew how long the overtime was going to be and they expected you to work at a fast pace that sometimes didn't seem reachable.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the system they use to take orders and how long it takes for people to complete orders. I always felt rushed which sometimes resulted in a messy pallet.
