    Pros

    Worked my way up from entry level to management, and know many others who did the same. Tried out a variety of job functions to learn about the business.

    Cons

    Grocery isn't the sexiest field out there; you're not likely to wow anyone at a cocktail party with stories about working here!

  2. Great environment

    Pros

    The atmosphere is not like working in a jail cell or day care. You are not micro managed. You have the freedom to make your own decisions. You don't have to email someone to tell them you are going on break. You are allowed to be yourself and not expected to be a robot.

    Cons

    I have been here a short time, and so far have come across nothing

    Pros

    -Start out pay is good; 15.20 an hour (once qualifications are met - 16.20 an hour).
    - Great place to work for any person that is up for challenge, change, and motivation.
    - The goal (the motivation/requisition of an order selector) is to meet the daily/weekly average. There is an incentive bonus added to ones overall pay that is based on your weekly score. Minimum score requirement for the week is a 95%.
    - There are tons of opportunities to grow, learn new things, and work you're way up.
    - Supervalu is one of the top highest in revenue grocery distributors in the U.S. This assures it's employees of job security.
    - You basically work alone.
    - Fast paced environment. There's not much time for chitchat or any drama.
    - Guaranteed 40+ hours (as of right now) a week.
    - Fellow employees are very cool and easy to get along with. I will say that Supervalu has done a great job in finding the people that they need to fulfill their requirements, but they also have done an even greater job in finding those who are compatible with others.

    Cons

    - Tough work environment. It is slightly dark, dreary, cold, and claustrophobic in the warehouse, but it comes with the turf. Keep in mind that it is an old warehouse.
    - The perishable side needs a lot of work. The isles are confusing to new hires and it's on the verge of becoming a safety hazard.
    - Concrete floors are cracked and uneven; making it hard to keep product in place when commuting from isle to isle.
    - Long work days (good or bad; depending on the person's personal life). Overtime is often thrown at you last minute, as well as any mandated work days when extra help is needed.
    - Only 30 minutes for lunch. I really feel like the warehouse employees deserve an hour lunch break, especially on busy/overtime workdays. You start to feel like a robot after awhile, so I definitely think a non-mandatory/optional one hour reboot time could help improve work productivity.

    Advice to Management

    We need more people! Especially the youth. Remember that the younger generations are what make an old company grow even older. Please continue to make your employees happy just as you are and reassure them of their hard work and efforts more often. Be honest and upfront; do not sugar coat any economical issues (if there are any) that might hurt the company and it's employee's.

    Pros

    The manager's always had an open door and listened to every concern. Employees were treated with respect and they were flexible for time off

    Cons

    No room for advancement at my location which was in the Shared Services Dept. Could also have used a better yearly raise program

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to recognize your employees more for their hard work, recognition is really lacking there

  11. Excellent place to work with good opportunites for advancement.

    Pros

    Exciting, fast-paced environment. Lots of opportunities and learning and advancement. Great people in IT!

    Cons

    Company is going through transformation to adjust to market realities - that is a good move but sometimes it causes people to flee and we have lost some great talent!

    Advice to Management

    Great to have visionary leadership - keep up the transforming!
