Cons: horrible management, long hours, miserable work environment.
Absolutely incompetent management who are rude and threaten your job at every turn. The management team needs to learn to respect their employees. Most of the supervisors are clueless as to what they are suppose to do and have a select few favorite employees that are allowed to do whatever they want. The rest of us are forced to work long hours, work – more... on our off days, and work in different depts. everyday. Pay is ok but for the hours and what is expected it is not worth it. This is just for the Advantage Logistics SERF facility. – less
deli clerk (Former Employee), paducah ky – February 17, 2014
I would assist customers and get them there fresh meats or cheese. I learned good customer service. The managers were nice and easy to work with. I liked my co-workers and worked well with them. The hardest part was closing at night time. I loved learning new things in the kitchen at this job.
Professional environment with good coworkers and flexible hours
Checker (Current Employee), St. Louis, MO – February 15, 2014
Pros: insurance, occasional free meals (for holidays), great team
Cons: short inconsistant breaks, not enough hours, very little recognition for hard work
This was a great job to go to after working in a small business. I got a better feel of a professional environment. I handled more money which made me a lot more comfortable with handling it day to day. The hours are quite flexible and make it easy to still work around school or another job. My coworkers are great and made me feel very welcome from – more... day one. The hardest part of the job would have to be long amounts of downtime or long amounts of uptime. They're both manageable, just not ideal. – less
IT Specialist I (Former Employee), Boise, ID – February 11, 2014
Pros: fairly decent pay
Cons: no benefits
A typical work day consisted of receiving calls from retail store users or corporate users. Users would call in with issues ranging from problems with registers not working to PCs not running properly. This position taught me many things and also got me more proficient at other skills I had already learned. I learned how to dial into PCs and registers – more... and various handheld devices using various remote applications. I worked with some very knowledgeable and helpful people. The work environment was pleasant and non threatening. The most difficult part of the job was the lack of positive feedback from management and very little room for advancement. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking with various people all over the country and helping them with their problems. – less
LCS (Former Employee), Indianola, MS – January 27, 2014
Pros: healthcare, dental and eye insurance
Cons: short breaks, early mornings
A typical day at Super Valu was counting groceries and making sure all counts were good. I learned a lot about inventory control. Management did not think that women should be in management so it was hard for a woman to advance. My co-workers and I worked good together even when I worked as the Lead-Person it was easy to get help from them to get the – more... job did. The most enjoyable part was the fact that I knew my job as well as the lead persons and the Supervisor so when ever they were out I filled in . – less
Manager (Current Employee), Hopkins, MN – January 22, 2014
Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: no 401k match
Supervalu provides a good work life balance and a flexible work schedule. While the company is struggling right now it seems the new management team is looking for new ideas from their employees and values them.
SENIOR AUDIT/BANK CLERK (Former Employee), Boise, ID – January 16, 2014
Pros: the variety of ways to work your 40 hours within the 6:30 to 5:30 time frame.
Management worked hard to ensure a productive and enjoyable work environment. Co-workers were generally a good group of people willing to work with and assist each other. I learned all of Oracle programming that I know through the training offered. The changes with the merger from Albertsons to Supervalu weren't all positive but everyone did their best.
The department I worked in was a good department--I had a manager who was flexible, allowing me flexibility to work around appointments I needed to. My manager trusted me, and allowed me the freedom to do my job and do it well.
The company has changed direction many times over the last few years--downsizing, then bulking up, then selling portions--it – more... is unpredictable. – less
Tech Analyst III (Current Employee), Boise Idaho – January 15, 2014
Pros: flexible office attendance
Cons: no lunch
Typical day is filled with problems that I need to assist in solving. The Technical services group is in transition. Under new management. Co-workers are frustrated. Hardest part is doing other people's jobs. Most enjoyable is the knowledge that I make a difference.
Great teamwork based effort with humorous and comfortable environment
Grocery department at Shaw's (Former Employee), Boston, MA – January 13, 2014
Pros: i could cash my check there when the store opened up.
Cons: one half-hour break instead of two fifteen minuite breaks.
A typical day at work would start off around 11pm. Another co-worker and I would block (line up perfect) the shelves from the first isle to the last one, isle 18. We would usually finish around halftime around 3am and go eat on our break. When we came back, the load from the truck was just about all broken down. We would then take either a pallet or – more... dolley to go work it (stock the shelves), using my boxcutter to rip up all the empty boxes and seperating the plastics. And at the end of the day around 7 to 8 oclock we would clean up and recycle everything just in time for the customers when the store is opening again. The hardest part was probably working the freezer because there's ice everywhere. The managers were tough on me but it taught me that getting the job done was most important and put in just as much work as I did. My co-workers made the night fun but knew when to work and laugh. My favorite part of the job was listening to old classics all night and everybody memorized the chorus' singing while working. – less
Dispatcher (Former Employee), Richmond, VA – December 19, 2013
Pros: working with the drivers and dispatchers
The job was a great place to work but the open door policy was not a helpful option. The manager was rude and disrespectful to all the co workers and no one in human resource did not do anything to help or fix the problem. The employees were great people to work with everyone showed care consideration and respect.
