Company Culture

It's a good company on a corporate level but individual store managers aren't trained well, lots of turn over, hard to get consistent hours and if you're not a favourite or butt kisser they make your life hell.

Support from management

Definitely

Teamwork

Rarely do you hear praise. To promote you pretty much have to stab others in the back.

Freedom to work independently

They make you believe you can work independently but then they micromanage you to death. Work is never good enough.

Internal Communication

Lacking in a large degree. Seldom had praise for what you are doing well but plenty of complaints for what you need help with or were lacking in.

Gender Equality

Not a lot of women and minorities in management positions. All the store managers are men except in 2 stores. They treat women like they are only good managers in departments like bakery or deli. Rarely ever see women in meat department, produce or grocery department especially in a management position.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It's difficult to progress in this company unless you're young and a man. The job is physical and they make it impossible for older individuals to start there. Most of the older managers started when they were young and took years to progress up the ladder. An older person would hardly have the opportunity or stamina to do that.

Career Development

Make much more money and have better opportunities for growth

Overall compensation for your work

Very much

Office / Work Environment

It was acceptable. Not great but not bad. No real employee lounge for staff to relax or be comfortable in.

Environmental Friendliness

They separate cardboard from trash

Work-Life Balance

Difficult to get scheduled to work around your family and home life. Hours can be scarce and they complain if you request certain days off.

Company Image

Much better than Hyvee. I feel appreciated.

Job Security

I work with school districts so I'm pretty secure.

Handicapped Accessibility

They have the bare basics required by law.

Workplace Safety

Acceptable

Challenging Work

Had to do all daily cash deposit and reconciliations. Responsible for AR/AP, invoices, expenses. Department managers difficult to work with, failed to turn in paperwork in timely manner and no support from store manager

Inclusive / Diverse

Store manages and department managers are divas. If you have good ideas or opinions they steal them and credit themselves or they feel threatened by you and are afraid you're trying to steal their job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more diverse people for management roles. Make raises and promotions merit based.Hold Store managers accountable not only for profit but employee turnover.

What I like about the company

I made a few good friends who were trying to contribute and progress. We learned to have each others back and supported each other.

What I dislike about the company

Management needs better human resource skills training. They need to learn to motivate people without being jerks.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay people better for what they have to do. Schedule enough people to do the jobs so all the work is not dumped in a few good workers. Provide Benefits. Stop hiring people as "Part Time" by keeping them just shy of a couple hrs for full-time just to get Out of paying benefits. Provide free lunch and drinks.. esp. drinks.. and Allow them to take breaks they deserve. Upper Management should know how to Do All jobs in every department.

What I like about the company

My customers loved me because I knew all of them by their first name and not a number. They still recognize and hug me when they see me. I loved my customers.. and the people I worked with. Time went fast cuz Job was stressful and you had to be able to think and work Quickly and smoothly under tremendous stress and time deadlines.. but I functioned best under stress..

What I dislike about the company

Working long hours with NO Breaks.. or lunch. Always working shorthanded with not enough people to cover all the work.. having to cover for lack of staff and mess-ups. Never being able to keep my days off cuz I got called into work all the time. No Benefits. Not enough pay for the amount of work I had to do in a small amount of time with not enough help. Lack of care or Understanding from Upper Management. Severe injuries from having to climb to reach supplies or to lift things that were too heavy for me.. cuz no one was there to help and it Had to be Done in order to provide services to our customers. Now have to live with chronic severe pain from all of the injuries I sustained while working there.
