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

    Pros

    Pay/benefits on par with industry; interesting industry

    Cons

    Old technology; old processes; old management - all of which translate to WAY TOO MANY HOURS contributing very little that is value added.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want this company to be SOON. Whatever that is, get current! When you hire good people, motivate them, don't drive them into the dirt with countless hours producing useless reports.

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

    Pros

    Loved most of the people, benefits are great although they don't match for 401k. Excellent environment and good opportunities to move up internally.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to recognize everyone for their hard work. Some of the work is data entry, anyone could do it. Doesn't really stretch the mind.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize everyone within the company. The merchandisers do a lot, but the specialists do the grinding work. Help them help you.

    Pros

    Supervalu is an excellent company to work for because it's Union with good benefits.

    Cons

    Management at Supervalu could be better. Communication seems to be the problem between subordinates and Supervision. Employees are kept in the dark sometimes on the company's status.

    Advice to Management

    All Supervisors and superintendents need to walk the floor of the warehouse and see who's working and who's not. Because not everyone is working their fair share.

    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.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity:
    You will learn a lot, while working with great people. My experience is that they are very family friendly, and try hard to accommodate you when you need time off.

    Cons

    Compensation:
    The compensation is fairly low for hourly employees (which unfortunately is too common in the Retail industry), and annual raises are negligible. Example: 23 cents per hour raise on a $23.00/hr job. I am aware of several full-time, long term employees who have part-time 2nd jobs to help make ends meet.

    Advice to Management

    Discontinue the employee self-review. It takes up work-time, and doesn't accomplish much because employee annual raises are decided the previous year during budget preps. It is disheartening and seems like busy-work.
