    I worked at Vons part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I think it really depends on the location and staff. I really love my team and the patients I see so it's really worthwhile. The pay is okay, could be more since it's CA and the cost of living is expensive. Currently, they can only hire techs part time so I work 30ish hours a week and don't get the full time benefits. But they still do have other benefits. Also, joining the union is MANDATORY. You don't get a choice.

    Cons

    Mandatory to join the union, part time, pay is a little low.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can’t think of any pros of working for this company

    Cons

    Training was terrible. They barely thought you had to perform the tasks and then left you to your own devices and they’d be upset because you didn’t know what to do. Scheduling was not consistent. The manager making the schedule was very vindictive and would give you the opposite of what you requested even though there’s someone who requested the schedule given to you

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so rude. Train better

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

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