Cold and unhelpful management
Fresh Foods manager (Former Employee) – VA – January 17, 2016
Middle and upper management is unfriendly and only speaks to managers, not regular employees. There is a lot of talk about safety, so if an injury occurs, they blame the employee. "All accidents are preventable".
Management want the work done with cutting hours during the holidays, but is unwilling to help. I worked at a location with multiple people with injuries. People are pushed until they can find a reason to fire them or they quit. There is no feeling of job security. The staff is miserable.
There are female and minorities in middle management positions, but after speaking to them I learned they had to give up family life to get there.
If you are a workaholic, who doesn't mind being unappreciated, this is the job for you.
Bonuses are good, discount is not bad, there are free products sometimes
