    Always busy
    Friendly managers
    Great Co-Workers
    No prior experience needed
    Laid back environment

    Cons

    Difficult to have a normal sleep schedule. (ex. Shift over @ 3PM have to go to bed at 5PM to be up at 1AM the next day)

    Unrealistic expectations

    UNION DUES!

    Advice to Management

    Managers expected us to keep the shelves 100% stocked with only 2-3 people working at a time. This is an impossible task.

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

    Pros

    Staff (not store managers) are kind and caring.

    Cons

    Store Managers and Division Managers don't care about staff and lower depts. Its all about sales and bonuses for them. They cut everyone's hours to make store sales look better!

    Advice to Management

    Try caring about the staff who are directly handling customers and servicing them. Without us you would have no bonuses! Customers are tired of having noooooo help in pharmacy! It's an accident waiting to happen!!

    We don't need more stores to open with no staff to work in them!!!
