    Pros

    A Paycheck and great co-workers who are going through the same crap!!

    Cons

    Union dues for nothing!!!! You have TWO schedules: one in the employee break room for the UNION to see and one in your department that the UNION FAILS or DOES NOT WANT to see. This way, they give you more hours but do not pay benefits since they claim it is adjusted due to employee shortages. Has been going on for months. Department Managers are uneducated, cannot read and/or write. That way they pay less. NO overtime is allowed even when they ask you to clock-in an hour early. They will send you home an hour early. Screw the guest and service as well!!!! A million dollar company that cannot afford the proper or enough utensils for safe food handling, trash cans, brooms and dustpans. Instead, we use cardboard boxes for garbage, and use the same utensils to handle different foods.

    When you do clock-in early it is YOUR responsibility to find a manager to do it; there are usually only 2 that are scheduled and that can do it, so good luck!!! Yet YOU are doing THEM the favor. It took me 4 visits to the office to finally get someone to do it ( 3 separate occasions) and then they acted like it was an inconvenience for them.

    Make sure you keep a copy of your original availability, if hired. If you need to get a second job for any reason, you will need to get the Store Director's approval to change your availability. Your new availability is will not be negotiable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They act like they are the only employer in town. Believe me, you are not, especially to those with an education AND experience!!!!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Roundy's Supermarkets in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three interview process. First interview is phone interview with HR, second with a direct supervisor, third interview with department head. I only did the first two interviews. Phone interview was very traditional ("tell me about XYZ job," etc.) The first In-person interview was scheduled for two weeks after the phone interview. Two days before the in-person interview, HR called and gave me some specific questions to prepare for and other talking points. I really appreciated this as it helped me prepare efficiently. The in-person interview lasted over an hour and was very formulaic. The interviewer explained that every candidate is asked the same questions so that they have fair evaluations. They asked about high and low points of high school, high and low points of college, and strengths and weaknesses for every job listed on my resume. They also asked about study habits during school, who my role models were, and other questions in that same vein. Was notified that I was not moving to the final interview three weeks after the in-person interview. Whole process took two months.
