Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNApril 21, 2016
It is a very enriching experience both professionally and personally. Because of the lean work environment I am exposed to the strategies of how a large retailer goes to market and the many parts of the business. The work was very time sensitive creating long work days. Many benefits and bonus programs have been reduced as cost saving measures. It would be a great place to learn grocery retail but use it as a stepping stone to a more secure company.
Pros
Nice Building, well designed for the workers
Cons
Constant management and strategy change

I started by picking groceries for stores all over the country. I drove a Barrett to do so. Then progressed to Loading trucks every now and then. Finally to working in the office doing the billing taking phone calls from customers and Vendors. As well as managing Vocollect (Voice assisted selection of orders) console and seeking out and fixing problems before they become a problem. Several reports had to be done daily and weekly. I also Managed several company documents and worked over different departments.

If you live to work, this is the place for you !
Management (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis-Saint Paul, MNApril 5, 2016
Terrible place to work with upper management having a bully style of dealing with employees. Communication was changing all the time. Fellow employees always looking over their back to see if big brother was going find a way to get rid of you ! No help in the stores and no one on top wanted to hear about it!
Pros
Good people at store level to work with.
Cons
No support

Horrible place to work!
Clerk (Former Employee) –  Denver, PAMarch 26, 2016
Horrible place to work! They don't care about their employees whatsoever. You are just a number in their eyes and will never be good enough.They over work you they give you more work than you can handle! The other employees especially the woman are the most two faced people you'll ever work with. Management don't even compliment you when you are doing a good job. You feel like you're being used. The insurance sucks and is not worth it!
Pros

IT Technician II (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDMarch 26, 2016
This company lacks a good direction for the future and relies to heavily on outsourcing to over seas companies. The management is the worst I have experienced in 34 years of IT related jobs.

Technician I (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDMarch 3, 2016
Supervalu made bad business decisions when they acquired Albertsons. After they determined they couldn't recover from the 6,000,000 in debt. They terminated lots of employees. Then ultimately sold the Albertsons Division.

Experts at moving perishable goods
Warehouse Supervisor, Transportation (Current Employee) –  Hopkins, MNMarch 1, 2016
Assigning work assignments daily. I learned a lot about mechanized order fulfillment. I learned a lot about dock supervision/management. I learned how to manage in a union environment. C-workers were intelligent, motivated individuals. The hardest part of the job was the changing focus each day. The hardest part was also the most enjoyable part. Seeing the end results and driving success to meet the goals.
Pros
Ability to learn multiple areas
Cons
The work schedules

Good pay with terrible upper management
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Hopkins, MNMarch 1, 2016
Upper management doesn't care about your home life at all. They just got new cameras installed and watch everything that everybody does all day. The GM of the warehouse even watches from his quiet office and then calls out superintendents to review/discipline. Constantly changing people's shifts and just switched everyone to 12 hour 4-4 shifts. If you have kids or a spouse I would stay away cuz you will never see them. Pay is good which is the only reason any front line leaders stick around. Although if their raises are the same as previous years think a lot of people are about to jump ship because Supervalu upper management clearly doesn't care about retaining any of their front line leaders that have been with the company for 10+ years. They also give unfair advantages to those they like and moving up in the company is only possible if you kiss the most butt. Experience doesn't matter.
Pros
Decent pay?
Cons
No life, constantly being watched, no positive recognition.

Multiple leadership changes at many levels creates instability and lack of growth for associates. It is hard to stay focused on goals and objectives when there is this much upheaval in the company.

Building tech at a company that doesn't understand tech
Tech (Current Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNFebruary 20, 2016
Management is selling a product that hasn't been built yet. Developers are expected to pick up the slack, cutting corners is encouraged and technical debt misunderstood.

Multiple projects compete for team resources, leading to conflicting priorities.

Developers' perspectives/insight routinely ignored by business. Project direction and implementation driven by orders from management, with no regard for best practice or common sense. The code base is fractured, between legacy code powering some projects and new development depending on legacy code instead of writing fresh. The house is on fire and developers are being asked to build a deck.

Routine meetings (and meetings about meetings) to grasp the finer concepts of Agile, sprints, and story points. Pressure on developers to lower estimates on turnarounds for projects, forcing developers to work off the clock to make sure goals are met.
Pros
some flexibility with remote work (2 days a week)
Cons
No perks. Not even free coffee.

Productive and fun place to work; learn some great things about food processing.
General laborer, stock clerk, maintenance aide (Former Employee) –  Charleston, MSFebruary 5, 2016
Supervalu is a good place to work. The supervisors are understanding and the other employees are very easy to get along with. Enjoyed my experience. The typical day begin with starting your job duties. I learned a great deal about food handling procedures. Co workers were great to be around. The hardest part of the job was trying to make sure that shelves are properly stocked after customers move items and put them in the wrong place.
Pros
Good communication, good attitudes and concern for employees
Cons

Don't.
Department Specialist (Current Employee) –  Hopkins, MNJanuary 7, 2016
Leadership is tone-deaf and unwilling to show any flexibility. Poor and mediocre employees are promoted quickly while good employees are fed excuses about why they can't be promoted. The weekly pay is nice, but the pay is low and the benefits are a joke. The company is quick to jump into pay freezes and has a "discretionary" 401(k) match. Leadership still gets their bonuses though. Many people feel stuck and are looking for other options. The office looks like it was forgotten about in 1985, with ancient decor and technology.
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
Everything else.

Senior Systems Engineer - SharePoint (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJanuary 6, 2016
All companies have challenges, good time and difficult times. Most of the time my experience with working IT at Supervalu was a good time. We had many changes and management turnover happened frequently, but in the end everyone I worked with wanted to do a good job and better things around them. The hardest part of the job was the change, the most enjoyable part of the job was being connected to real people working and not just to corporate function.
Pros
Flexible work environment
Cons
Industry Changes causing workforce shrinkage
