    Great hours, good work environment, considerate co-workers, managers that will listen to your needs.

    Cons

    Sometimes short staffed, favoritism, not great pay.

    Cross training and rotating departments is a great thing. It keeps people from falling into a rut, and keeps it more interesting.

    Pros

    Benefits, decent pay for a young person

    Cons

    Takes a long time to get topped out

    Advice to Management

    Need some better communication to the store level employees. Sometimes we learn about promotions or sales from the customers coming into the store

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. Thats about it.

    Cons

    Wages suck at lower levels, upper management doesnt seem to care about anyone below them in "rank". There is no wage increase for training for example I started as a checker at 10 dollars an hour and am now trained in dairy, deli, and produce and still make 10 dollars flat.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and stop being greedy and increase wages.

    Pros

    Great colleagues throughout the chain makes it fun to work. SOME management teams are great motivating and inspiring to team members. They can help you advance and be successful.

    Cons

    No growth a long time. Wages have been stagnate and while they promote advancement in wages it will take 10 years to get to $16 an hour. Benefits are good but only worth while after 5 years. The union is not what is was and adversity between management and the union has team members caught in between.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your team leads, $0.50 more an hour is not compensation for the job. Take down some hurdles for the new team members to advance on the wage scale. Too many good people leave to make more at other employers as entry level positions.

    Pros

    This company provides great benefits, even for part time employees. Pay starts out a little above minimum wage, but that is to be expected with entry level positions.

    Cons

    It is fairly difficult to become a full time entry level position. It takes a long time to accumulate a significant boost in hourly pay.

    Pros

    If you like working with the public then the checker (clerk) experience is for you. Nice people work here, management in this store is very fair and cool. Good benefits. Company considers itself a family. They do work with me and my schedule.

    Cons

    Not sure that compensation is competitive but I have not shopped the competition for that info. Unclear about how committed company is to developing employees.
