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

    Pros

    Great work environment. Everyone is extremely friendly and open. Management is approachable. Value everyone's opinion and voice.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for growth. Not encouraged to expand and work for different departments. Most employees are over worked. It is frowned upon to take vacation time. Not many opportunities to learn new skills. If you are a salaried employee forget about work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee empowerment and growth.

    I worked at SUPERVALU part-time

    Pros

    Great management, great coworkers, some customers are nice, and the work is constant and steady.

    Cons

    Some customers are difficult to deal with, self-checkout lanes are constantly malfunctioning, and when coworkers call in, or no call/no show, things can get really stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The management at the store I worked in has issues they shouldn't have to deal with at such a consistent basis. I hope they can convince Corporate to make some changes that'll make their jobs easier in the long run.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity within the company. Tons of areas to choose from for work. Great benefits. Daytime hours without weekends. Paid holidays. Some work from home opportunities. A lot of great people work within this company.

    Cons

    Some departments have issues. I reported things to HR, which left the building and came back to me from another employee. I was fired six months later for supposedly not knowing my job, despite working there for 4.5 years without any poor reviews or conduct issues. My manager blatantly lied about the things I reported to HR, when confronted about them. I was doing three people's jobs at the time due to other employees leaving and not being replaced. I learned a huge lesson about the purposes of HR.

    Advice to Management

    The higher ups need to look into the departments who are firing long-term employees who have been there for 4 or more years. I watched several other people that this "Director" just didn't like, get put on performance improvement plans, and then be fired. If you are put on a performance improvement plan, chances are you will be let go at the end, in this particular group. Don't get me wrong, I find PIP's to be a great tool for improvement, but the group I was in, used them to play dirty. You should know that I was told I had a lawsuit, but I did not file because despite that small group in the company, I still love the rest of Supervalu.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU part-time

    Pros

    Very ambitious and responsible in terms of time management, alongside having a very charismatic attitude.

    Cons

    I will over analyze things, which in turn may tunnel vision, but it's better to think of the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and truthful, and explain things concisely. Also be positive about experiences, and let out some information to know more about you.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    competitive pay for lack of need for experience or education

    Cons

    never know when you will get off work... teamsters union encourages lazy work ethic that effects other employees... supervisors lack ability to manage people

    Advice to Management

    need proper training for supervisors to be able to instill proper people skills... the company could save millions in labor costs if people were used in a more appropriate manner

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time

    Pros

    It's close to home. The people I work with are nice. There's not much more I can say to paint it in a positive light.

    Cons

    It's disorganized, there's no communication, it's sexist, anyone that isn't management is a minion, and as I see it, the business model is set for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at what's just on you desk and look at the big picture. It's just just about the department you work in but the company as a whole.
