      "Terrible standards"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Truck Driver in Tacoma, WA

        I worked at SUPERVALU full-time

        Pros

        Chris who is in the dispatch office is a hard worker. The only reason why this review is not one star.

        Cons

        How this company operates and not being to hold any supervisors accountable.

        Advice to Management

        Communication is key to succeeding in this industry. Most lack this in the leadership here.

        I worked at SUPERVALU full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Great stepping stone to a better job at a better company.

        Cons

        This company has been on a downward decline for a decade and it’s evident almost everywhere you look. Procurement system is from 70’s, office building hasn't been updated since the 80’s, upper management has been with the company 20-30+ years at the minimum( which stands in sharp contrast to the average buyer lasting just under a year). Micromanaging is at the heart of the office culture, zero freedom is given to develop...

        I worked at SUPERVALU full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Above industry average pay, great benefits, strong company

        Cons

        Working at a large holding firm like this comes with many shortcomings. Typically the management structure is fairly deep and the right hand doesn't alway's know what the left hand is doing.

        Advice to Management

        Keep working on the reporting structures and lines of responsibility.

        Pros

        Great benefits, central location. Opportunity for overtime.

        Cons

        Their is a system of micro-managing. Even if you're during your job, management finds fault on the smallest details. This leads to employee turning onto each other. The turnover in the last 7 years is @25 %.

        Advice to Management

        The new ownership is UNFI, if they are serious about completing in this highly competitive market, they need to/should restructure their upper tier of warehouse management.
