    I worked at Stater Bros. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Anniversary check, a minimum of 24 hours a week, unionized so it's hard to get fired, flexible scheduling, works around schooling

    Cons

    It's sometimes hard to get time off, seniority is huge here, if you have more hours than someone that has seniority over you, they can take your hours

    Pros

    Store manger is great

    Cons

    Uniform was awful (dress slacks, dress shoes, ironed white collar shirt with a tie, long hair must always be up and shirt tucked in.)
    Worked more than part-time
    Told to do things that were forbidden by company policy

    Pros

    They have a Flexible Schedule, Not a hard job , promotions , being able to work you're way up . Being able to call in

    Cons

    When you're in the Heat pushing carts , giving up most holidays sucks . Vacation time for courtesy clerks sucks

    I have been working at Stater Bros. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Approachable management, clear guidelines, union protections

    Cons

    Not enough hours, costly strict policies regarding uniforms (which are outdated and unflattering,) not enough training

    Advice to Management

    Better training for new hires (especially those holding their very first job.) Training consists of an HR checklist and no actual training. More hours PLEASE.

    Pros

    Great insurance through the union.

    Cons

    Working in service departments is dangerously stressful due to under-staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to handle your low margin business than to dangerously understaff and treating your store staff like they are expendable.

    Pros

    Great feeling of satisfaction helping the customers. The other employees are like one big family.

    Cons

    Short breaks. They run a tight ship. Almost like being in the military.

    Advice to Management

    Better training necessary for new hires. Tell us when to take are 10 min breaks. You run the show, we should not have to ask for a break.

    Pros

    Great flexabity for college students

    Cons

    Culture depends on store employees

    Advice to Management

    Identify those workers that are there for the long haul and those that are working towards other goals in order to work on where they fit best within the store. Treat your employees with respect and they'll return the favor. Don't purposefully obstruct employees with overly demanding schedules outside of work.
