The unions are the only thing that make the job bearable. Without the unions, I'm sure they'd be offering even less to their employees. Partial eye and dental coverage is nice, but I'd rather have a real, comprehensive medical plan. Even full time employees have to pay significantly for their healthcare, and everyone starts part time, with few opportunities for advancement. Full timers are required to work 6 days a week, and have to move to other stores on a regular basis if needed. The only discounts employees receive are on their lunch break. The work is bearable, unless you're in certain departments, but management is a joke. The left arm rarely knows what the right is doing. It's not the worst, but there are better grocery store jobs.
Management is terrible, little chance for advancement
