Store Director/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Moorhead, MN 56560 – June 18, 2016
Fast paced work environment with many challenges. Ability to work with numerous individuals at once to achieve a common goal is a must. Ability to react professionally to multiple customer/employee situations.
Culture is very important, and involvment with most employees is the strong suit of the company.
Area Manager (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IN – October 15, 2015
Nash Finch merged with Spartan Foods to create the newly formed SpartanNash in 2013. The culture of both companies appear to very closely matched, making the transition with most employees very smooth. I have worked in many areas of the company and would say compensation is average or slightly better than average for all of the positions I am familiar with. As the business continues to evolve, it appears adavancement opportunities are slowly diminishing. My co-workers have always been excellent, which says a lot about the culture, and many have stayed loyal for 20, 30, or 40+ years.
Enjoyable place to work with many very professional and hard working associates.
Bakery Deli Specialist (Former Employee) – Minneapolis – April 8, 2015
I would work on established priority stores as well as the day to day monitoring of store metrics.
I learned how to make a unit profitable and where to look when results were not satisfactory.
Most management were great to work with but as with all places, a few personalities cold be difficult. Coping with those few were the most difficult part of the job.
I enjoyed most of my co-workers and have stayed in contact with them.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to identify strong performers, training them, promoting them, and then watching them grow and blossom into their new positions. I also loved the personal interaction with our customers.
Competative pay and good benefits.
Sometimes corporate egos were difficult to work with
Typical day at work entails meeting for project initiatives, application development for service requests, and employee interaction for development tasks. I enjoyed the clean, comfortable environment and the acceptable level of challenge for applications development. Coworkers can be angry or evasive, but leadership does the job well of managing personnel and bringing in new talent and also providing incentives for current talent to grow their careers within the company. People can sometimes be perpetually disgruntled which makes the job less engaging. The most enjoyable day on the job has one or two meetings for project efforts included and development work in between. Good people overall, though people are sometimes critical to a fault without just consideration of the effort peers contribute to a collective development goal.
Great workplace and application tools
People can be snobby and disgruntled even when they are handsomely compensated for their time.
Expediter (Former Employee) – Westville, IN – April 6, 2015
The HR Manager and supervisors in the warehouse were wonderful! The job was temporary or I would still be there. Treated with kindness, respect and professionalism. Supervisors were patient in training me and quick with a joke. Never had so much fun on a job before!
warehouse associate (Current Employee) – norfolk,Va – July 11, 2013
I have been with this company since it was MDV, new management team do not listen to the employees. I have seen people work 16 hours straight and still cant go home. We now have to work all holidays that we use to have off. No profit sharing or raises this year. We have people that have been here 10 and 30 years but they go outside the company to hire supervisors who we have to train then they leave with the experience. If they don't like you, you will not advance.

They beat their employees mentally and HR is for management only hourlies have to call hotline for answers . Never recommend this place to no one..

Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Midland, GA – February 18, 2013
Do not work here unless you really need a job. You never know what time you are going to get off. There is no time for your family. The physical demands of this job declares war on your body. The most enjoyable part of this job is finally going home.
