    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, Friendly Work Environment, medical wellness incentives

    Cons

    Care more about retailers than employees; insurance deductibles are a little high; poor management; overworked and underpaid; exempt employees receive no incentives when required to work over 40 hours; pay everyone on the same level but not everyone is given the same amount of work; treated unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to pay everyone at the same rate, give everyone the same amount of work. Do not over work an employee just because they have more knowledge than others. Treat everyone fairly. No business can operate at its full potential without organization. Have more knowledge than the people you manage or you should not be in a management position.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time

    Pros

    SuperValu compensates their employees well. Unlike many other employment opportunities, for the most part, when you leave at the end of the evening, you do not have to take work home with you.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be very difficult, as most positions require work every other weekend and 2-3 nights per week.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees and the time they spend making your stores run smoothly.

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

    Pros

    Business casual attire but completely unprofessional

    Cons

    the most ridiculous and inexperienced management team! They lie without a conscience to deflect blame from themselves and deliberately sabotage their employees to safe face in the presence of their pathetic director. Nothing gets done! Instead busy work is implemented in addition to the hectic, unorganized desks we buy. Terrible leadership who openly harass their employees and create hostile work environments. The most uncomfortable atmosphere to ever work in. If I could shut down an organization, it would be Supervalu. I’d suggest working at Target or Walmart corporate offices. Supervalu will not be around much longer. They are going bankrupt. They lost Adams, Gordys, Hagen, marsh and are on their way to losing the fresh market. Turn over rate in grocery buyers are the worst. Lost over 8 in less than one year. Don’t waste your time on a limited career path. PFG is where it’s at!!!

    Advice to Management

    Management courses should be in place! A lack of sensitivity and respect circulate the office. No one wants to be around your negativity!

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

    Pros

    People were great; both coworkers and direct managers were supportive and friendly, and just generally good people. Appreciated a job well done, made coming to work each day a pleasant experience.

    When I started,

    Cons

    Starting salary was good, but "merit" raises (typically just 2% COLA) were a joke. Benefits were extremely lackluster for a Fortune 500, and 401(k) matching is a joke (just 1%).

    Upper management is a revolving door of stale ideas and failure, perennially forced out and then replaced with another member of the old guard who insists on putting their friends in high-level positions and then making the same mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to attract, develop, and keep younger talent, you need to help them grow (both professional and financial incentives need to improve).

    You need to be affirmatively family-friendly, because tomorrow's managers with years of experience are today's employees with young kids, and you need them to stick around and grow in the industry.

    Stop being so stingy and greedy. Telling your employees you don't have money for merit raises while a short-time exec gets a multi-million dollar payout is just a slap in the face. Reward hard work and talent.
