    I have been working at United Supermarkets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you do a good job, you will be noticed and rewarded. There are many different departments you can work in and there are opportunities for advancement. Company tends to promote from within. Christmas bonus and free turkey are a nice added benefit.

    Cons

    New hires don't always receive as much training as they probably should.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training for new hires and employees transferring to a new dept. If employees are properly trained in the beginning, you will experience fewer problems down the road.

    Schedule was very flexible and co-workers were great! I also really loved all the great customers that came in regularly, they would really bond with the staff.

    Cons

    Management could be very disorganized and there was very little room for upward movement. You also had to work holidays.
