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

    Pros

    Work life balance,opportunities to advance, different fields to work in if you are willing to learn, and can sell yourself well.. Not glamorous work, but pays the bills and you won't ever be bored!

    Cons

    Minimal guidance, sink or swim. Company struggles with technology and systems, but is working to improve.. I think current employees sometimes don't realize how good they have it.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your good people salary wise, and don't take your "veterans" for granted, they keep the company running and with employees that have grown apathetic, "shake things up".

    Pros

    Was good while it lasted it but the company shafted all the employees before closing down

    Cons

    Everything about them is shady

    Corporate is planning to close all their facilities to make it non union

    Pros

    Very fast-paced work environment with a real team atmosphere. People really care for and create an environment that benefits the success of the independent grocer. Company is loyal to long-term employees.

    Cons

    Minimal turnover not allowing for a lot of opportunity.
    Low-margin business can make for a pressure-packed work environment.

    I worked at Unified Grocers part-time

    Pros

    good work environment the people are cool but supervisors are alway uptight especially day shift

    Cons

    Life and work balance can be better never know how many hours youre going to work just have to play the guessing game

    Advice to Management

    work on being a little more interactive with your employees. never drug tested and there was always people using substances on the job.

    Pros

    They have great medical / dental/ 401k, and it's a family atmosphere. Lot's of people who are related work there.

    Cons

    They've continued to downsize. Also supervising union warehouse workers can be discouraging at times. Also, seasonal overtime can be overwhelming, and you don't get comp time or overtime pay, it's just expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on with the friendly atmosphere, it was a pleasure to work there. I was there for ten years.
