Dont Bother
Manager (Current Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNJuly 4, 2018
Great co workers but training is non existent. Basically everyone just flies off the seat of their pants until someone says something about how you're doing it wrong. The top level management is a joke. They took away several floor employees to add admin who would never be bothered to come down and help when it got busy. They have 4 marketing people. Ask me what they all do, because they arent attracting customers.
Pros
Great Co Workers
Cons
Management, Admin, No Training, Sales Declining.

awful, just awful
Produce Buyer (Former Employee) –  St. Paul, MNJuly 22, 2017
Not ready for prime time administration. They claim to help the "Community". Not one dime is given by the coop, only money pandering from shoppers goes to causes chosen by their board members,
Coops aren't like they used to be. They're just big companies with big markups.Clueless marketing.
Silly, out of date procedures. They charge middle class hard working people full price, while non working, non contributors get big discounts.
It's a good place to work If you're covered with tattoos and piercings and can't pass a drug or background check and no one else will hire you.
Pros
high quality luxury food
Cons
folks at the top are power hungry, angry, little Napoleons

Great people, horrible bosses
Meat Buyer (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNMay 5, 2015
I lot of people that wanted to do a good job got so discouraged they quit. People who should've been fired never were. Management often seems like they have no idea what they are doing. If you can keep your head down and your mouth shut while everyone else is being gaslit and goes crazy you'll do really well and maybe get a promotion after 5 or 6 years. The food is good. The discounts are ok. The work is physical, but not complicated.
Pros
Great coworkers on the floor, good food, ok discounts
Cons
Poor management floor staff relations, poor accountability leads to lazy workers, cliquey
