Stressful with little help
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJuly 19, 2018
When you work here don't expect to be taught well. You learn new things everyday that they should have taught you in the beginning. If you like a challenge and people yelling at your face, you will like this job.
Pros
Free food sometimes
Cons
Short breaks

Good job to hold you over while in search of better opportunities.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Eagan, MNJuly 16, 2018
Overall good company with easy work, the catch is that they will give you the hours you want when you first start, then over time you get scheduled for less days and shorter shifts, I like the job I guess but it's just hard as a teenager to save up to move out, get a car, etc. when your job only gives you the bare minimum of work.
Pros
10% discounts
Cons
Lame hours

National company that was a recognized strong player in the industry.
Center Store Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  New Stanton, PAJuly 11, 2018
Supported Independent Retail locations with goods and services to sustain and grow their businesses in the markets they resided in.
Made store calls to sell specific deals and to provide access to specific sales generating programs, as well as those to help them run their stores more efficiently and profitably.
Loved building relationships with retailers and their staffs and working hard to become an asset to them over and above just being a source of product.

Workload sometimes too large and very trying on priority setting,

Loved the people I worked with...…..
Pros
Ability to work remotely but still provide open communication and feeling of belonging to the team.
Cons
sometimes not as customer focused as we pretended to be.

Fairly easy job
Pricing coordinator (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNJuly 10, 2018
a typical day would include stocking shelves, helping customers, making isles presentable, cashiering, cleanup, along with other tasks as well. I learned how to work well with others, help people with a multitude of different issues. I learned how to work in all aspects of the store. Management was good, tried to balance a commitment to their employees while also operating the many facets of the store. The hardest part about the job was dealing with angry customers. the best part about the job was getting to know the customers, meeting many new people from all different walks of life.
Pros
union, meeting people
Cons
short breaks, not many hours

The job can be fun at times you can meet great people who can become friends with. You management always think about your family and your own well being. It can be stressful at times but you will always find someone that is willing to give you a hand and help you get the job done. If you enjoy helping people this is a great job

Receiver/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJuly 5, 2018
Supervalu acquired Unified in June of 2017. They knew certain crucial issues existed. There was a very expensive lease that was running out. They tried in vain to renegotiate and at the last moment they decided to hurriedly combine the Seattle operation with their Tacoma operation witch by any standard was the model of inefficiency. Needless to say it was and continues to be a disaster.
Pros
no pros
Cons
too many to name don't doo it

pretty good job
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) –  Crystal, MNJuly 3, 2018
They are flexible to get you hours you want part time job. Deli work can be stressful, the ticket is to stay busy, cleaning, refilling things. it's complicated the many things they sell. Listen to senior people they can help you. Keep your cool when they have sales, the customer doesn't care if you. never snap at customer they are just there to buy something. :)
Pros
good team environment, introverts can feel like extroverts with customer interaction :)
Cons
extremely "real" work, get's stressful that way.
