E-Cart Shopper (Former Employee) – Cameron Park, CA – March 16, 2019
I really liked my job, but not my supervisor. She was always yelling at me, to go faster, when I am learning to find where the products are, in there store. She wood make errors, and blame me, making me seem really incompetent. I loved my job, but was let go, because my supervisor, said, I was not fast enough. Working 3 days a week, is not enough. I felt, I was being blamed, for every ones mistakes,
nice people if you needed help anyone will help you

E-Commerce Clerk (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – March 13, 2019
I couldn't imagine working here as long as some people (20+ years). The amount of stress that is put on personal shoppers is ridiculous. I understand trying to make Raley's at the top for online orders, but they really should focus on the problems first before pushing more and more orders. There is a lot of issues that end up causing more stress on you. You need to be an expert at multitasking with quick deadlines because it will occur that you are left alone or having to balance trying to train new coworkers while being on strict deadlines. While all of that is occurring the phone will be going off repeatedly and you must answer. Then you have to deal with upset customers because coworkers accidentally messed up something on their orders and others calling to complain about their orders being late. The phone will also be going off for customers here for their pickup and the delivery drivers. Then while you're shopping, customers love to ask you questions or chat while you're shopping quickly. If you're short with them then they will complain about us being rude. There's only so much a person can do. Also, scheduling is ridiculous. If you've been there longer than a year and a half you will get pretty stable hours. Anything less, you'll be shocked when you get anything over 24 hours. Then if you get a decent shift, someone will complain to management about how they want it and they'll schedule the next week with for them with that time, leaving you with a less desirable shift. Don't bother to ask for help when everything is extremely hectic. They'll tell you no followed bymore... some excuse. But if a person who's worked there for many years asks for help, they have no problem helping out all of a sudden. Since I've worked here numerous amounts of people have quit from various departments because of poor management and stress. The ones who haven't quit are looking for a stable job to go to like me.less
Customer Service and Retail Clerk (Current Employee) – Reno, NV – March 4, 2019
I guess my main stipulation to working here is that its only really if you want to work part-time, which I made it clear that I didn't, whatsoever. I genuinely try to make it clear I am always available while working, though the Managerial staff doesn't have the pay for a 32 hr. clerk. There are only ever 4 checkers working in a single day, and most, if not all, are part-time. Management is kind and understanding, but they don't have the funds to pay people properly. Coworkers who have been loyal and worked full time for 13 years are being told they have to start working 26 hours a week instead, when this is their only source of income, and I have had an entire month where I only worked about 40 hours. Overall, a positive work environment, but terrible hours.
Great for the most part. Majority of the co workers were great to work with.
E-Cart/Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) – Elk Grove, CA – February 24, 2019
For ecart, I had to shop orders using a scanner gun, check to make sure product was in good condition, let customers know of out of stocks, load up orders for customers, and if product left behind, deliver them to their house. For checking, I had to understand how to work the register and memorize codes, regular transactions, checks, and Wic orders.
Order Selector (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – February 17, 2019
good pay, poor schedule, cool people and job related activities (sports and BBQ's, family days) Selectors are on call for the first year or 2, you do not know if you work until 2 hours before shift start
Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – February 16, 2019
Always keeps me busy and love the energy of the workers , all the workers there are very helpful people they’re also nice when you first meet them and very open and welcoming and are willing to show you around and make you feel like apart of the team and make working there for you a fun and comfortable experience.
Clean Work place. Fellow employees make and effort to help new employees join the Team
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – West Sacramento, CA – February 8, 2019
Customer Service is a priority for all. The most enjoyable part about being a courtesy clerk is the interaction with the public. I found that a large amount of the returning customers had shopped at the location I was working for years, because its near their homes.
Free Bakery Danish or other snacks at differnt times
Fast-paced work environment with great coworkers and management
Clerk (Former Employee) – Chico, CA – February 7, 2019
I loved working at Raley's. I liked their clientele, employees and their attention to detail.. Lots of my coworkers had been there 5+ years, but it wasn't stimulating enough for me. They are pretty flexible with college students, but around the holidays it was hard to ask for less hours, especially around finals. I would say 90% of my coworkers really liked working there, and the morale was obviously high. The management truly cared about their employees, which you don't see in every business. The turnover was also pretty low, after working there for 9 months I noticed that for such an extensive payroll, there wasn't a large percentage of new employees being hired, except around the holidays which is expected. I think Raley's is a great place to work, and a great grocery store to shop at, if you can afford it.
Great management, attention to birthdays, achievements, etc.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – San Pablo, CA – January 31, 2019
It's a 7 days a week type of business but each workers only allow to work 40 hours a week. I learned how to make the best sandwich and plus Raley's/Nob Hill does make the best sandwich and deli foods. Management are great and the workplace is a lively atmosphere. The wages is very desirable especially the cost of living.
Assistant Office Manager (Former Employee) – Elk Grove, CA – January 25, 2019
It was a great place to work, especially while raising my kids. They were always pretty good about working around a schedule where I could go on field trips and school functions with my kids. I did meet some of what I like to call extended family members.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Chico, CA – January 22, 2019
I worked full-time at Raleys, all the while attending college full-time. I also had my baby boy during my first year working here. Life was over the top busy for me but the company was family orientated and understanding of my crazy schedule. This was a game changer! The pay/benefits were decent but living in CA was hard in general... which is why we moved to NC. Overall, I highly recommend this company.
I started in the deli department on the first closing shift from 10:30am to 7:30pm, there is a seconded person that closes with you that starts at 12:30 pm. The deli team generally all come in at different times so it all runs smoothly all day and there is enough to help for the morning and also closing the deli. When you are down a person or someone isn’t pulling there weight in the department the whole team definitely feels it so being a hard worker, efficient, and a team player is very important. Closing duties and cleaning the department are held to a very high standard and your work does get checked and reported. As long as you do the job how it’s supposed to be done and have good customer service you will have no problem.
They encourage you to move up in the company and if you want help you make it a career.
We had several different managers in the deli and bakery department while I was there, constantly changing the way we did things was frustrating.
Courtesy Clerk, Checker, Floral Assistant (Former Employee) – Rohnert Park, CA – January 13, 2019
>A typical day at work for a Courtesy Clerk was bagging groceries, assisting customers to their cars, sweeping the store (remember to clock your sweep!), get carts, and pick up the phone. When I was a Checker/Floral Assistant, I would check customers out, cash checks, water flowers, manage plants, pump balloons, face items on the shelf, help in the back, and personalize cards or flowers to a customer's liking. >I learned how to use my coins, produce numbers, organizing shelves, what are good and bad managers, communication skills, managing schedules, asking coworkers and managers about information on the stores and policies, and floral management. >Management was okay the first 8 months of my job. The head Manager was an understanding man and the Assistant Manager was great. He would listen to me, treat me like a human, thank me for my work, keep things organized, and overall be a joy to work with. After he left and got replaced with a new assistant manager who treated me more like a robot, work became a drag. All employees had to take off their festive wear because it "didn't fit code" even though it was a way to lighten up the store. A new Head Clerk (who was very close to the new manager) tried to get me in trouble for wearing a Union pin on my apron. A senior Head Clerk had my back and gave me permission. The new manager felt more "out to get me" and it was not fun. Work became more like "work" and I began to feel less motivated with my work. >The workplace was alright. My co-workers were a lot of fun and I enjoyed talking with them. We had some bad courtesy clerks sometimesmore... but that's always expected. There's always a couple of people who really stink at their job. Just had the typical grocery store rules, nothing really special. >The hardest part of the job was dealing with customers who didn't take no for an answer. I did not talk back at all but I had to sit through a lot of unnecessary scoldings about how the store didn't have Toffee covered almonds, even though I explained and double confirmed with another employee that they're seasonal items. >Most enjoyable part of the job was my coworkers and my very fun assistant manager. I had a lot of good times with them and everyday was a blast with them. I have multiple stories with them and the either crazy or ridiculous situations we got into. If the same people were working there, back during the holiday of 2013, I wouldn't mind being back at Raley's.less
No half time on a LOT of holidays, always changing managers
Maintenance (Former Employee) – West Sacramento, CA – January 10, 2019
Place was garbage, shift supervisor tried to hook up with all the girls in the cake department. Pay was garbage too. Everybody blamed everybody else. Fix everything but don't spend money on repairs. Get it done but no overtime. That place was backwards like crazy run away while you can.
