    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Waldbaum part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that worked there were pretty good people, but unfortunately that wasn't indicative of the apparent business model they adopted from the parent company The Great A&P Tea Company.

    Cons

    Their parent company was a total nightmare, hence the company's eventual dissolving.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck to all the displaced management there, I saw mostly good, hardworking people.

    I worked at Waldbaum part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The hours were very flexible and I was able to work through high school and college. Benefits and pay were decent.

    Cons

    There were many, many problems with this company. There was no upward mobility, the parent company completed mismanaged the entire chain and the employees were treated like garbage. The worst part about working for this company is that we were not informed of anything the company was planning to do. In fact, we were told the company was doing well. The company promised us that after the first bankruptcy, the company had vowed to remain competitive but the executives clearly wanted the company to fail. They didn't pay their creditors. The company lied to us. I'm lucky if I can find a full time job now.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is many of you should rot in jail for allowing this company to go bankrupt. Enjoy your place in hell.
