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

    Pros

    Pay was good, my managers were fair and competent. Workload was fine, and we were given the tools and time we needed for the job.

    Cons

    Home Office was doing things no one at my level expected to work. Center store, too slow to expand stores.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the problems started with the Albertsons 'merger'. Clear house and start again.

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

    Pros

    Great paying job that's in a union and depending what department your in you have a chance to make extra with overtime

    Cons

    When your first starting out you kinda get treated like trash because they make you stay til all the orders are done. So on busy days if you think your just working say a 10-6pm shift your greatly mistaken. Makes it hard if you have kids or your wife or gf works as well

    Advice to Management

    Should make staying past what your scheduled optional for casual workers or at least give them so many days a month they can go home on time. Sometimes things happen and you have to be home. It really makes it hard especially starting out if your not used to the grind of picking orders all day.

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

    Pros

    You get tons of exercise and you're left alone most of the shift. Nobody really keeps on you unless you don't do a good job.

    Cons

    It's union for some reason. They don't pay well. The people you clean up after are slobs and they look down on you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire someone then give them 8 hrs/wk

    Pros

    The Hours are great, location is ideal. I don't deal with micromanaging which I appreciate Dress code is casual Cafeteria on site

    Cons

    If you're not a man or drop dead gorgeous or come from Target getting a promotion is close to impossible Raises are a joke

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Recognize the hard work people do and foster career growth before you lose good employees

    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.

    Pay alot more and learn to do your jobs
