❸ Provide excellent customer service (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: interaction, healthcare
Cons: n/a
A typical day at work starts with clean hands and a smile. I learn something new every day, like new ways to stock or new ways to keep things fresh. My management team is beyond amazing. My co-workers are helpful and hard working. The hardest part of my job is balancing closing tasks and customers, but with the right attitude everything and anything – more... is possible. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing that I have made a customer happy, knowing I provided friendly and outstanding service. – less

Productive, but tough environment
General Merchandise Clerk (Current Employee), San Diego, CANovember 13, 2013
Pros: extra points when i go shopping
Cons: short breaks, bad management, micro-management, under-promotions
A typical day consists of going in and analyzing what needs to be done and where everyone is on the schedule. Then, along with helping customers, make sandwiches and keep the work area as clean as possible. Management likes to micro-manage and while this is good as an hourly reminder, it can get in the way of helping the customers, if they are constantly – more... telling me to stop helping them and face the shelves first.

I feel like I'm stuck and have no room or oportunity for advancement, even to a different department. It's not clear if that is due to my compitancy with the job that they wish me to remain, or that they have no other choice and I'm the only one that can do the job.

The hardest part of my job is dealing with my store director, who thinks that I'm still struggling with understanding my position. In fact, it's just the opposite and I understand my job too well and my department is constantly being over-worked and under-staffed due to management issues.

The most enjoyable part of the job, is when I complete a task that enables my co-workers to not have to worry about whether or not we have product to put out, or that something isn't cleaned right. – less

Tiresome
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Culver City, CAOctober 25, 2013
Pros: management and coworkers
Cons: promotions
A typical day would be pushing carts, cleaning bathrooms, cleaning floors, and bagging groceries. Learned more about customer focus, management focused on customers while keeping the work environment enjoyable. Hardest part of the job would be cleaning bathrooms, especially during a bad day. The most enjoyable part would be working with your co-workers.

Sales Manager (Current Employee), Malibu, CAOctober 3, 2013
Pros: advancement, potentially good for the haul, benefits are exceptional

Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CASeptember 25, 2013
Pros: having such a great manager!
Cons: there are times where they ask for way too much.
Ralphs has really taken care of me, beneficially and physically. A typical day at work consists of joy and laughter. You never know what to expect the next day you go into work. Co-workers are great always there to cheer you on and making you feel comfortable at the workplace. I would say the hardest part of the job is getting there. The most enjoyable – more... part would probably have to be being able to get free stuff every now and then. – less

Meat Clerk/ Seafood Manager (Former Employee), West Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley storesSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: company was very supportive when i took a leave of absence to go to the marine corps, and when i became a reservist there after i had a tremendous amount of support. to serve our nation.
Cons: no advancement opportunities beyond seafood manager.
Places meat on trays in display counter.
Receives, inspects, and stores meat upon delivery.
Estimates requirements and requisitions or
orders meat supply.
Records quantity of meat received
Learned how to cut and trim
some shop managers were very willing to teach, at other times
and shops not so much,
some co workers did not want to teach techniques, – more... mostly because of insecurity that hispanics were there to take their jobs it was the job mentality everywhere, untill the majority learned i was a Marine corps war vet, things changed from that day forward after 1993.
The hardes part of the job was advancement it was very limited, and difficult to be advanced to journeyman aprentice status.
The most enjoyable was the friend ships developed with our custumers, and being able to serve them. – less
