Worked for the company in one location for ~9 1/2 years and enjoyed most days. A first job out of high school that allowed me to advance both laterally and up. Pay was decent, guaranteed a raise every year during annual reviews for the first 6 years or if you reached the pay cap. Management and team were generally great and easy to get along with both in and out of the work place at first location. Transferred to a different location after moving to a different state and promptly resigned. Second location had horrific management, shifts, and lack of staff. Direct and store management was incredibly inept and worked only to their benefit.
The management is obviously talored into the most agreeable and helpful people. They are professional and respectful to their employees and I will take that with me for the rest of my life. Although the grocery store situation is considered a blue-collar job, it has white-collar style advancement. People have started as teenagers and evolved into full-blown store managers. Every single employee and department were kind and helpful. Definitely recommend!
