    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

    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 full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Unified Grocers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Constantly pulling and pushing freight around in short period of time. Never a dull moment of work. Easy work and able to get things done in a group or individual. Early start and have more than enough time to have a personal life

    Cons

    Not able to understand the team lead because of the ethnic differences. If you are not the type who would like too work in the cold it would not be the job for you. Unable to use the machine that you are able to use because they feel like you would damage the machine or merchandise

    Pros

    The people are friendly when they are willing to help you out and the overall location is nice and safe.

    Cons

    Tough industry to be in right now and the company has been going through a lot of changes especially in upper management. It's a sink or swim attitude for any new hires just to survive since the there are a lot of old timers there that are territorial about keeping their job. Major cut backs in benefits as well.

    Advice to Management

    They need a fresh overhaul from top to bottom on all levels.
