Suggestions for improvement

  • Bigger raises, more employee appreciation, and opportunities to grow within the company.

What I like about the company

The health benefits are the best I've ever had at any job. The co-workers I've met along the way are like family. The pay is pretty good, and it has provided me with job security as a single mom.

What I dislike about the company

I feel that we are not appreciated for the extremely hard work we put in sometimes. The hours are some what grueling, but it comes with the territory of working for a big retail chain grocery store.
