Brenham Wholesale Grocery manager, protein procurement department Review - Understaffed, long hours, disconnected upper management

Very clique-ish culture and ownership (management), for the most part, operates within those cliques, giving blatant preference to certain individuals. Nepotism is prevalent. Management's major failure is disconnection; from an oblivious comprehension of the shortcomings regarding their operating and inventory systems and the limitations thereof, to the issues of understaffed departments, to the necessity for interdepartmental communication.... their lack of operational awareness is daunting.... and forget about the logistics department; it's an utter NIGHTMARE. They're completely clueless when considering the work involved in running many of the departments and are notorious for running 'a good work horse into the ground.' Opportunity for advancement is far and few in between for most. They pride themselves in attempting to run shoe-string departments, so if you hire on, be prepared to work far beyond your scope and enjoy the additional responsibilities, once they're aware of your competence. There is no compensation for your extra efforts, no pay raises, and no quarterly or annual bonuses.

Pros

flexible work hours (though you cant afford the flexibility), opportunity for limited telecommuting, and solid 401K

Cons

nepotism, culture, management's incompetence (ownership), weak compensation, no bonuses, and get ready to work all but christmas day, thanksgiving day, and easter day

Fast paced and busy days

It's a good place to work compared to most other places; coworkers are usually pretty cool and the pay is decent. On your feet all day so you're tired by the end of it.
