Company Culture

I worked at multiple stores over 11 years from 2004-2014. So the company culture changed quite a bit over that time.

Support from management

No support from management. I only got support from a few managers and that was very rare and far between.

Teamwork

Our teamwork wasn't bad with certain departments within each store. Working in the deli/bakery produce and meat the teamwork was great. Out front and other areas there was a lack of teamwork.

Freedom to work independently

ha!!! I wish this was possible.. You couldn't even sneeze without having someone yelling at you over it at times. Other times you were getting yelled at for not doing someone else's work.

Internal Communication

This changed from management of one store to another. At one store our communication throughout the store and the overall structure and movement during a busy period was great. If we had bad management well then it wasn't.

Gender Equality

None.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Terrible.

Career Development

This company ignored the fact I was in college and scheduled me during finals so there is no career developmental or encouragement for the employees.

Overall compensation for your work

None.

Office / Work Environment

Bad work environment. Faulty equipment that tried to kill me as well as managers who blamed me for that equipment falling to pieces.

Environmental Friendliness

None.

Work-Life Balance

There was no balance especially when you tried to fit life into the situation. I can't remember how many events I missed because I had to work.

Company Image

Lies.

Job Security

No job security. I have been injured at this job multiple times and in one case permanently with no compensation.

Handicapped Accessibility

Very little.

Workplace Safety

None.

Challenging Work

Not at this job.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is no diversity, and to be in fact there were at times racist opinions thrown by individuals.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat the employees like human beings, have actual benefits for them such as insurance that's really insurance that pays for when they have surgery or go to the ER. Replace the equipment and actually listen when an employee says something is wrong with it. Put in a system for when employees want to go to school no mater what program it is they enroll in whether its online or local college. Most of all actually screen your management before hiring them this may include a psychology programs since they seem to be a bit insane from my experience.

What I like about the company

Nothing really not in the end.

What I dislike about the company

A lot.. too much to say. In the end I have a what is basically a permanently damaged foot since it curves all the way inwards because of walking on their floors and twisting my ankles on their wet/oily floors.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make the associate discount apply to sale prices and pre pay phone cards.

What I like about the company

I like the open communication I have with my department manager. They help you get the time off you need for family. I like the wellness program the company offers. The associate discount is good and you get to work with a great bunch of people.

What I dislike about the company

I don’t like not knowing what the pay scales are for positions other than my own. I feel that associates at retail locations are treated differently than associates at the corporate level. I don’t like the fact that we are open on Easter and Thanksgiving when we should be closed to spend time with our families like the corporate office does.

Suggestions for improvement

  • No more level 10s. They are a waste of time. And many teams don’t have them anyways. Show a little more appreciation to your employees.

What I like about the company

We get fresh fruit. We have a relaxed dress code.

What I dislike about the company

Don’t promise bonuses. Don’t let us run without being osha compliant. Up our pay. Communicate to us better. Answer emails on the first or second email. An email should never get to “3rd request.” Care more about people in the background. Those in pricing and procurement and accounting do a lot for ops and account management because they slack on their work. No group should have to be babysat by upper management.
