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

    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

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small office environment with lots of responsibilities. Very fast paced and hard to keep up with work load. Sales is key.

    Cons

    Leadership not in sync with workforce at the division level. Expectations unreasonably high for amount of staff allotted to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Come to grips with reality of the situation and stop the revolving door of people. New systems won't fix your problems of lacking sales.

    Pros

    They have a liberal work-from-home policy. Blue jeans are allowed with the casual workplace policy. Pay and benefits are typically above average.

    Cons

    Everything is political! An extreme amount of "empire-building" leads to many turf wars and little cross-team collaboration. Training expenditures are seldom approved and it is very difficult to advance your career. The company's culture and values typically do not match mine.

    Advice to Management

    Tear down the silos and encourage open communication plus collaboration! Create a plan and stick with it - every two years leadership shreds the old goals and everyone must start over, which causes confusion and low morale.
