      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Vons part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The interview process was not bad, but that mostly just results in employees coming and going often.

      Cons

      The manager was not a reasonable person and did not respect his employees very much.

      Advice to Management

      Treat your employees better and they might stay around longer

    • Good at first but you can't move up if you're not a part of the club.

      Current Employee - Checker 

      I have been working at Vons part-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Co-workers are great. You can learn various positions throughout the store to gain experience and to gain more hours. You cannot beat the health benefits.

      Cons

      Depending on the management, you can have a great experience or a horrible one. Too much drama at my particular store. Learning more departments also means you are stretched to the extreme and your hours can vary from morning, night, or overnight shifts. You can't move up in the company unless you are a part of the "club". Seems only the favorite people get chosen to move up in the company even if they are less qualified.

      I have been working at Vons part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good if you’re a student and work here is flexible. Nice people, benefits are great after first year, can start your 401K asap! Able to do multiple departments and still keep me from being bored.

      Cons

      Mundane But then again, I’m easily bored. Starbucks doesn’t get any corporate Starbucks perks. Franchise, the one in Vons, only get tips.

        Pros

        Medical and Dentil, payed vacation , payed sick days.

        Cons

        Not paying what the job is worth. Schedule is such that you never have enough help. They continue to demand more work yet never giving the help needed to accomplish the task.

        Advice to Management

        Schedule more help. Pay the deli employee what the job is really worth.
