Accountant (Current Employee), Boise, ID – July 30, 2015
SuperValu management does not think about anything past the end of the month. Everything is a fire drill and management will not take ownership of a project through completion. All positions are up to be outsourced and employee retention is low.
Bakery clerk (Former Employee), Downers Grove, IL – May 7, 2014
Pros: discount, good work-life balance, customers, and somewhat good benefits
Cons: short breaks, hours, and management
I worked at Jewel-Osco for about four years. I started as a bagger then moved to cashier. They then promoted me to bakery, which wasn't the greatest. The job was fairly easy and I got along with mostly – more... everyone. The sad part about this job is the hours. I was only getting twelve hours a week. We couldn't get any more hours because of payroll which sucked. The job is good for someone who's in high school and is looking for their first job. The upper management works us to death for small pay. I had to leave this place because it was nothing left there for me. I wouldn't recommend this job or someone looking for a steady job. – less
I enjoy working with my customers, that completes my day.
Front End Cashier (Current Employee), Richmond, VA – April 25, 2014
Cons: no room for further advancement
I wake up looking forward to making my customers smile and seeing that they are satisfied. I have learned to do the best at what I know how to do and be patient through the experience of learning something new.
Pros: getting to try some of the product line when new items come out to the public.
Cons: when shipment is delayed and the store has in upcoming ad.s.
Entering price changes while assisting retail customers with questions/concerns. I learned what is needed for the pricing scale and working with GM/HBC product line. Assisting the Category Manager with – more... projects, price changes, buyers fair booklet for sales and ordering. Had a unit of 3 other Assistants that worked in other product lines to assistant their Category Managers. The hardest part of the job is to be modest with your work. The most enjoyable part of the job is communicating with customers that depend and trust you to get the job done. – less
Warehouse/ Transportation Superintendent (Current Employee), Oglesby, IL – April 15, 2014
Pros: advancement through the ranks
Cons: time cut short due to business change
Over the last almost 16 years I have learned a lot of techniques and skills and have grown with the company. We have worked many hours and created long lasting relationships that will be a part of my life – more... for years to come. I am greatly to have worked for a location such as this and had the opportunity to work with many talented individuals. It is now time for many of us to move on due to a business change that requires extreme downsizing. I do not regret for one moment working here and along side some wonderful people. – less
