Deli Associate (Former Employee) – Osage Beach, MO – March 14, 2017
Great place for someone in high school to learn work ethic..and experience. Learning that upper managers are above all...in their own view, there own mind , they are so above the staff that they literally could work with you for years and never say two words..! .there ability to allow there staff to be able to track late days and call ins in 2017 is totally inadequate, most places have an app. That will allow employees to view there accumulating personal days , late clock in...ect. in real time .I believe this is a intentional.( short fall) allowing them to use company policy to be unattainable for there employees. Company policy....employee attendance...request off ...can all be available to your employees via internet....this is a great way for your employees to be assured that all records are accurate! But otherwise loved my Boss and loved working with all my co workers...learned alot.. .!
Great ppl. To work with core managers are not part of your every day experemce
Intemtionally keeping employees from their own personal attendances and company policy, in a day in age of infinate means of communications for both employee and employer
Del/Seafood Clerk (Current Employee) – Ellisville, MO – March 12, 2017
Dierbergs is a family owned company and treats its' employees very well. As with all companies these days, the theme is to do more with less. Customer service is top priority at Dierbergs and speedy service is only one part of that idea. There is never enough staff in the deli and hours are constantly cut. Many of my coworkers are high school and college students. There is a profound lack of positive work ethic among this age group and management does not address these problems. Overall I would recomend this job to anyone looking for part time work.
Assistant Manager/Manager (Former Employee) – Edwardsville, IL – February 4, 2017
At base Dierbergs is a good company, the respect and positive affiliations are there. Nepotism remains rampant, the daily structure is often in upheaval. They definitely need to change certain business models to if they want to remain relevant for years to come. Management is often inexperienced with handling diverse employees. Corporate seems to always be one step behind in communication, while communication store to store is slightly difficult.
30 minute lunch; 2, fiteen minute breaks
little hours, no ability to move up unless nepotism is the main motivator, no benefits if they keep hours low for the associate.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Fenton, MO – January 10, 2017
They do not offer full-time jobs anymore which means no insurance. However, they do have a Worker's Union although I felt that they did not benefit me at all. This place is very good for high schoolers who have no work experience and need help finding that first job.
Worker's Union, Seniority list, some half-priced items
All the Courtesy Clerks are mainly High Schoolers, Some overbearing managers, Hard to reach wage raises with difficult standards
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Bridgeton, MO – December 30, 2016
The job is best for someone looking to get with a company and never leave for the rest of your life. Management is hit and miss depending on who you are dealing with ! Employees are lazy and incompetent ! Overall the job is decent just not for an ongoing college student !
Produce Clerk/Trainer (Current Employee) – Wildwood, MO – October 17, 2016
Overall a great place to start working. Everyday there is something new that you must adapt to. I learned to always put the customer first. Management was accommodating with schedules. The co-workers were generally friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job was inventory. The hours were late and long. The most enjoyable part of the job was developing relationships with the customers.
Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – December 14, 2016
A beautiful store to work in. the customers are great, they take the time out to speak to you. Ask's you about you day and life. the management could be better, a little more considerate. but in all a pretty good job.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Shiloh, IL – September 9, 2016
This grocery store caters to old-school customers looking for an old-schooled grocery store experience. The products on shelf are typically top of the line brand names. The majority of the customers are loyal and like to engage in everyday conversation.
Occasionally management provided staff with free snacks
Inability to move up (I thought I was going to be a cashier there forever)
Bakery Clerk (Current Employee) – Arnold, MO – August 22, 2016
A typical work day can vary from busy to quite. I've learned to work under stress when its really busy and how to keep myself busy when its quite. I work with friendly and fun people. Management is friendly and hard working. They try to help the employees and want please every customers. The hardest part of the job in my opinion is trying to please every customer to the fullest because not every customer is easy to please. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I get to be creative and I love being creative and finding new things to do or new ways to do everyday tasks.
Produce Clerk/salad bar (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 29, 2016
All the managers are horrible. If you work in salad bar, you will only close. You must work EVERY single holiday. You have to work forever just to get a .10 cent raise! This job actually sucks and is very miserable.
