Another productive place that management likes it when they're employer's work hard.
Custodian (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IN – June 28, 2016
Again I liked this job for the most part. I like how they gave me an opportunity to work for them, but they can seem dysfunctional at times, or un-organized. I was a custodian for them for the most part, but someone kept trying to argue with me and they'd have me work with him every other day so I got tired of that part pretty quickly. Whenever I didn't have to work with him I enjoyed it though,
Most of the people there are friendly and hard working, Usually a serious place, They pay their eployees well
No air conditioning in the warehouse, dont like being a custodian, didnt enjoy being in the freezer part.
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.
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.
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
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!
Regional Advertising Layout Assistant (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – February 6, 2015
A typical day at work included designing grocery store newspaper ads and shelf signs, data entry, and assisting customers with orders. The best part of the job was learning to use the Apple Mac for the layout and design of the ads and then admiring the work you completed. The hardest part of the job is that I worked so fast I would run out of things to do and would get bored.
