    Pros

    Apprehending subjects that attempted to steal product was exciting and definitely a learning experience.
    Company was great to work for minus a few officers and one manager being a bit one-sided.

    Cons

    Low paying wage, could use better pay especially for what officers go through on a daily basis

    Advice to Management

    Provide better pay for the dangerous situations you put your officers into.

    Pros

    Decent pay for full time workers and management. Other than that no pros. Upper management is very rude and have no clue on how to lead people.

    Cons

    They promoted a pharmacist to be a district manager of half the stores and he doesn't have a clue. Needs major training on how to lead people because he has no management skills. Micro manages everybody when he has never stocked a shelf in his life. Moral is at an all time low throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and make sure your team has experience in the field. Upper management needs to train in departments so they can learn certain things and realize there goals are unrealistic with the time and people available.

    Pros

    The only pro that I experienced from this soul sucking corporation is a handful of great friendships. Believe it or not, there are plenty of amazing, talented, and fun people stuck at SNS.

    Cons

    The entire COMPANY! The awful awful awful corporate people. Supervalu in general.

    Lets start here. The company has gone down hill so far that literally nobody wants to work there. You can get paid more at any fast food place. Even some retail pays higher! Benefits are an absolute joke. Full time? You might get full time hours considering that there are not enough people or hours in the day to fulfill the double never ending needy list from corporate. Simply put, a double edged sword. You can never win! Doesn't matter if you do the exact thing that was wanted or even better, it will not be good enough. The management at each store plays favorites. Every store is like a different high school. Cliques of old unhappy women and some ridiculously immature men with no self esteem. Management is full of these random people mostly off of the streets with no SNS background that run around power hungry causing amok. I've noticed most in the management or corporate status are either short with major napoleon complex or they are lacking self control and show lack of hygeine as well.
    NOBODY communicates!!! No single person in upper management or corporate know what another person has given instructions on or gotten an email on, etc. Supervalu doesn't even know what SNS is doing! They can't keep customers because they won't treat employees well and do not listen to customer nor employees voices. I've never been treated so awful. They also still pay minimum wage. Don't expect to get far up the ladder when it comes to money. You can make it a "career" if you would ever want to consider it that. But you still wouldn't make good money. Raises are petty. Labor is petty. Attitude is petty. No appreciation. They do discriminate.

    THIS COMPANY DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU OR YOUR WELL BEING!

    Advice to Management

    Drop the EGO and gain some HUMILITY! Care for your employees because they are keeping you in your current position with your nice salaries. You may live large but we don't. Appreciate the work ethic many have and the amount of time and effort they will put into getting things done that you assigned them to do. It's not only awful ungrateful customers that we deal with. It's you. Every single one of you. Go take some business classes. Take some classes on how to treat humans as well. Good luck, I don't see this place lasting another few years honestly.
