Current Employee - Grocery Directs  in  Athens, GA (US)
Current Employee - Grocery Directs in Athens, GA (US)

Pros

Good benefits, Excellent 401k matching, GED reimbursment, etc. Better pay than most retail stores, good chance to move up if you can get along with your bosses. Lot of opportunity.

Cons

Too many chiefs and not enough indians syndrome, our store manager micromanages too much, nitpicks over small problems while large ones get larger. Employees who don't work and carry their weight stay on while those who work hard are demoted, quit, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage personal responsibility and ingenuity in the lower ranks, it will boost morale. Hire a person to do a job and stand back and let them do it, only step in if they aren't getting the job done, but for the sake of other employees, remove them if they can't perform.

    Typical Retail

    Pros

    Great compensation amd benefits are decent. Working hours are ok but its typical retail so can get out of hand.

    Cons

    No real sense of what is needed in the stores. Reacts to others and then tries to beat them no matter how it affects the associates. To many measureables, spend all day typing emails instead of executing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the stores back to the managers.
