Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Savage, MNSeptember 20, 2017
There was no room for advancement and they kept everyone in the same place forever. People were kept at part time hours so they would not receive benefits.

Customer Service, Cashier, Stocker (Former Employee) –  Forest Lake, MNSeptember 20, 2017
This place was usually a mess, but overall a good place to work. The pay was minimal and the work was fairly simple. Customers were the hardest part other than trying to please managers and what they wanted you to do within a certain period of time.

Easy Job
Cashier/Stocker (Former Employee) –  Charleston, MSSeptember 19, 2017
This is a very easy job for a high school student. The hours are flexible. Majority of the day will be spent at the register assisting customers. The most challenging part of this job is standing in one spot for several hours.

a place to provide true customer service
Customer Service Representative II (Former Employee) –  Aurora, COSeptember 18, 2017
Management is helpful and supportive of you providing great customer service to the callers. Your punctuality and adherence to their time off policy is more important than making mistakes on the job. Co-workers are always nice and helpful and the work itself was balanced between being challenging at times to being easy and repetitive.
Pros
Helpful and supportive atmosphere

Poor upper management with no time for personal life
Department Specialist (Former Employee) –  Denver, PASeptember 12, 2017
As a former employee, I felt the desire to take time and let others know to keep searching; There are other jobs out there! From the beginning of orientation you are only told the good of the company; how they are a billion dollar business and why they think you should work for them. Let me just say, there are many rules that are bent and favorites that get overlooked for their lack of abiding by the rules. Your hours never stay the same and they're always short handed so when call-offs happen; be prepared to be told you have to stay. The more you know and have been cross trained the more they use you. The hours are long while the job is fairly easy so long as you have been trained properly, which is also another issue. As for the benefits, the vacation allotment is good but the healthcare benefits have a lot to desire. I wouldn't recommend even my worst enemy to work there.
Pros
Pay, vacation time
Cons
Management, healthcare, long (always changing) hours

Long hours, poor pay
Shipping Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Denver, PASeptember 8, 2017
It's a 10 hour shift, but you have to be there an hour early to set up and are expected to be there an hour late, plus whatever OT the shift runs and there is almost always 30 minutes to 2 hours of OT. They are open on holidays and don't give extra compensation, plan to work Independence Day, Easter and even Christmas Day. Associates are in a union, which severely limits your ability to discipline them as well as motivate them to do any work above the standard.
Pros
4 day work week
Cons
Bare bones benefits, poor 401K match

Fun and Enjoyable experice, however..
Mantenance (Current Employee) –  Woodbury, MNSeptember 1, 2017
While this job is fun, enjoyable and management is great. The pay and benefits are minimal. Now if I was still in high school I wouldn't care too much, but because I am out of high school and trying to be able to move out of my parent's place, 10.20 an hour with a maximum of 29.5 hour's a week its not enough and if your over 18 they aren't as eager of promoting you cause most of the people applying are still in high school so advancement is impossible unless you transfer to a different store or quit. However besides that its a pretty good gig. Plus we get beverages free while its super hot or super cold outside cart pushing.
Pros
a easy going position, with an understanding boss, and a great environment.
Cons
Pay is horrible if your not in high school, benefits are minimal, and advancement is almost impossible when your 18

Inventory Control Department Specialist (Former Employee) –  Hopkins, MNAugust 30, 2017
Everything about this company is very dated. The way Supervalu approaches almost every aspect of business is the same as it has always been done. Supervalu has no interest in changing with the times. All of the Management staff are old white men except the HR Manager at the Hopkins DC. No one who is not a white male succeeds at Supervalu.
Pros
Flexible schedules
Cons
Literally everything else
