I bagged groceries. It is not a good company as it was years ago. They start at minimum wage and difficult to move up. Its important to value customer service

you have to fake it to make it
COURTESY CLERK/BAKERY CLERK (Former Employee) –  La Crescenta, CAMarch 14, 2017
Ralphs is like one big high school of a place. The younger workers gossip about their activities and about who is interested in who and what and the older workers gossip about the younger workers while also stressing about managers and hours and what people their age are doing. You earn what you need to earn cash wise but the staff keeps you on your toes to say the least. The managers always on your heels for the smallest things, smile and keep your head even when you're close to a breakdown. The customer is always priority, even over your own health and even though they see you as a lower level laborer. But hey, it's an easy way to make a quick buck and you'll hardly hear a story of someone who was let go. The only thing you have to loose by working there is the respect of upper management and the general population of customers who stroll in.
Pros
paycheck
Cons
terrible management, bad work/life balance

Night Crew (Former Employee) –  South Pasadena, CAMarch 12, 2017
It's a good first job to get your foot in the door of working. They are willing to work with you on your scheduling, but like all jobs management can be a bit of a problem sometimes.
Pros

Focus of the company has changed with new leadership
Coordinator Assistant (Former Employee) –  Compton, CAMarch 11, 2017
Industry is changing over the past 35 years. The companies standards have lowered. In today's inviorment it is now commonplace for the company to let go of dedicated imployees with 20-30 years of services in order to lower ethical standards and customer first standards. Today the focuse is less for less and the companies bottom line. The once value of dedicated service no longer exsists and members that can not adjust to lower values and unethical work practices are let go.
Pros
There is opportunity for advancements
Cons
New employees work more for less

Reliable hours and friendly staff
Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) –  Goleta, CAMarch 10, 2017
A typical shift is four hours but if you need extra hours there is always the opportunity to cover a shift. The store stays open late even though there are not many customers, so sometimes work gets boring.

A good job for teenagers and students
Bookkeeper, Produce Clerk, Receiver, Price (Current Employee) –  Rancho Palos Verdes, CAMarch 8, 2017
Ralphs has served me well the 9 years I've worked there, but many of their strategies are outdated. Management is hired from within, but a lot of talent gets filtered out by smart workers who are too bored or frustrated with Ralphs' aging systems.
Pros
Great benefits, Work/Life balance
Cons
Terrible management

Very little opportunity for advancement. They find it hard pressed to let hard working employees move on to advance their careers.
Union does little to nothing for you.

Price Integrity Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Huntington Beach, CAFebruary 28, 2017
A typical day consisted of greeting, helping and making each customer feel special, all while doing the best at the job that you were assigned to that day. Every one has the opportunity to learn new positions if they are ambishious. Learning different areas creates a choice in where you would like be asigned. It is very difficult sometimes, trying to be productive while stoping to help customers all the time, but that is part of the job and you learn to enjoy it.
