Stocker/Inventory (Current Employee) – Garfield Heights, OH – November 5, 2018
Working nite crew is enjoyable some what but you’re sleep schedule is everywhere and seems to me working nite crew for 4 years now, they like to scapegoat nite crew and place blame on us majority of the time but they get overzealous and let their ego get in the way of the real problems.
Customer Service Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Cleveland Hts, OH – November 3, 2018
Its actually an great company to work for i been there 11 years but im not getting paid enough to provide for my family as being a single mother. This company have really had my back and i have gained multiple skills and have endured great cutomer service.
It was a family owned business. They treated me like family.
Managet (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – November 1, 2018
It was a nice place to work. Just a mom and pop neighborhood store. I actually grew up in that neighborhood and so it was a little weird to be workingbthere. It had different owners when I was a child and shopping there.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Merrill, WI – October 14, 2018
Dave’s county market is a productive a busy place. A typical day includes its ups and downs of bosses and customers complaining. The management isn’t very good, anytime some need to scan alcohol is need it takes them a long period of time to walk over to scan. I learned a lot about custome service there, and the staff are always very polite. The hardest part of the job I’d say is when you have to run the computer system many things are very confusing. And I’d say the most enjoyable part of the job is when you do pickups and bagging your own groceries (for me, I had to bad a lot of my own groceries)
a decent part time job with little upward mobility
Employee (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – October 8, 2018
Chances of getting 40 hours are zero, because that would mean the company having to pay out benefits. Employees that have full-time have been there at least a decade and were grandfathered in. They have a flexible schedule. A good place to come in, do your hours, and then call it a day. A relaxed work environment as long as you keep up with the pace. Not a company that seems interested in developing or promoting employees. Working in a department, you will work directly under a department head. They have standards of cleanliness and expect good work, but this should not be too much of a challenge for the average person. If you maintain a good attitude, you'll do well. Don't expect to become a manager any time soon, though.
while working at Daves, I found that the location that they sent me to train was a better fit for me than the location I worked at. the manager at my store did not care about the workers and was always mean to everyone.
Great job for first starting out but I just wish there was more Advancement in the company and better hours for long-term Employees. I've been with this company for many years I love what I do, I just wish I had more help at times.
My hours are very flexible I can choose what day I can or can not work
Cutting back employee hours no advancement in the company
Union company, most Dave's arent in great neighborhoods. Upper management is very nice.
Butcher (Current Employee) – Ohio – August 21, 2018
Dave's is a union company run under union laws. It's a nice company with very good and caring owners. The biggest negative is it is VERY difficult to get full time ever. You will most likely need a second job to be able to afford to live. Part time union benefits are ok but you are unable to include any family members. I understand it's a way for Dave's to save money and I understand that, it just makes it difficult to stay at Dave's for a life time career. It's a good company but needing to work a second job really infringes on time spent with my family and keeps me constantly exhausted. Because of those facts I am always looking for a new job.
working in the bakery was cool at times but it did get stressful. They only give you a certain amount of help to do things especially on holidays. the bakery staff was great. I just think for this to be a popular store, there should be more done for the employees there. they over work us at times and they act like the don't ever need help, but they do. I didn't like the time clock. it gave me points when I know I was clocking in when I was suppose to. they also had really strict rules. rules that seem to be kind of crazy considering that Davis is a grocery store. I also didn't like the fact that they waste a lot of food there, and the employees have to use the same bathroom as the shoppers which I feel was very nasty.
loved my crew in the bakery
management was kind of harsh towards their employees
The harder you worked the more management shows appreciation
Produce Clerk/Liquor Stock (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – August 14, 2018
The employees who worked hard for their direct managers were shown the necessary appreciation and support. Lack of communication with upper management led to strained relationships between employees and stores managers.
Assistant Dairy Manager (Current Employee) – Cleveland Heights, OH – August 11, 2018
Dave's is a good job which offers benefits due to being in a union, as well as a good job culture, employees, and flexible hours. Throughout the years I've worked here while being enrolled in school, they were always dedicated to making sure my work schedule fit my school schedule. It's great as a school and/or a second job.
Also while working there I've met great people to work with along with managers. As long as you are a decent worker with common sense and courtesy, you'll be treated fairly by others.
I work at the Lee/Harvard store. Been there 5 years. I love my customers and they appreciate everything I do to put out a good quality product. Being in Local 19 you have great health benefits if you are full time. That's one of the problems here. Hard to get full time.
