    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Full company paid benefits, good hourly pay, and union protected.
     Good for single men/women who dont care about life outside. Job security

    Cons

    Very high turn around rate, they should be embarrassed. Management is a joke and dont know what their doing half of the time. Life outside of work is nonexistent. Its the type of job you get stuck at very easily. Moving up in the company is possible but not worth it, in most cases.

    Advice to Management

    Make moving up in the company worth it.

    I worked at SUPERVALU part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    10% off groceries

    Cons

    they hire as many part time people for the least pay and work them right up to the hours allotted. Majority of employees do not work to excel there and the few that do, there is no future to rise in the company.

    Advice to Management

    hire some full time workers that know what they are doing and care about their job.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Mon-Fri hours. Decent pay-rate.

    Cons

    Didn't receive orientation or training. Was handed my I-9, left alone for an hour to stare at a wall, directed to take my badge photo and shown to my desk. Wasn't told which software programs I was to use and wasn't given any contact information for the merchandisers I was to be working with. My department manager is unprofessional and talks about the employees she doesn't like behind their backs and aims to ice out particular employees until they get fed up and find alternative employment. One time, in an attempt to embarrass me my department manager took a personal email of mine and forwarded it to the whole department with an expletive to "make an example of me". Oh and health insurance sucks. Also, when complaints are made to HR confidentiality is always broken.

    Advice to Management

    Check in on your department managers and see how theyre treating their employees. There is a lot of pettiness and targeting going on.

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with. New focus on modernizing. Work from home two days a week.

    Cons

    There was little documentation for the processes and systems that were in place. The team was doing their best to catch up but it made it difficult to be effective.

    Stay the course. Keep treating people well and building effective teams.
