    Pros

    It is a union job, so your rights are protected. i.e.. Getting breaks, getting paid for "all of your hours," treated with respect etc.

    Cons

    The coorporate policies are disconnected from reality. For example, you need to fill out safety observations where you comment on another employee working safely. It has become something that management just wants you to get done so they can fill a quota. They don't care if you pretend that you really observed something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to spend more time in stores rather than just coming up with new policies. It would be nice if the Union came by more often. We do pay them $100 a month.

    Sometimes fun, not given tools to succeed.

    Pros

    Love most of my employees
    Some store managers are awesome and are great resources.

    Cons

    Not enough hours in the day to do everything
    Unrealistic goals
    Changing bonus goals/ structure right before the year is over
    New contract employees recieve minimum wage until they reach a million hours and then they get a 25 cent raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with all the programs and audits and concentrate on giving employees more money. Most are great employees that will go elsewhere to make a living. Stop with all these audits, we're in the business to sell groceries, aren't we?
