    Pros

    Friendly people to work with

    Cons

    Supervalu does not take into consideration how hard of a worker you are. When push comes to shove they will lay off by the number not by the contributor of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hold on to the hard working employees.... but really you get what you pay for.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, decent benefits, private brand discounts, company has returned to profitability

    Cons

    The company expects you to give them everything and gives you very little in return. Poor performers are promoted while the people who work hard are just given more work with no promotion/raises. The office looks like something out of 1980, with leadership and attitudes to match. When processes are questioned, people just shrug and say "that's the way we've always done it." The office is also dusty and moldy, so people are constantly coughing and sneezing. The CEO is tone deaf and doesn't seem to realize that not everyone makes a CEO salary.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the office and step into 2015.

    Pros

    GREAT, SMART PEOPLE TO WORK WITH. Really enjoy the camaraderie on our team.....however not always hunky dory across company.....

    Cons

    Good, not GREAT benefits, no 401k match (maybe this year tho), no raises for a while during the darker days. Management needs to make sure all units are working together toward same goals (office teams.....). Often right hand gets blindsided by the left hand.....no one knows what other groups are doing. However....tremendous potential for the future of this business.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on current course, invest in new systems

    Pros

    They still offer a better than average vacation time. Customer service is BTB so customers are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Constant change, instability, extremely demanding standards, management expects workers to work OT to cover their lack of staffing, revolving door upper management always micromanaging and fishing for improved results with no real clue what they are doing or the true impact of their changes.

    Advice to Management

    Middle & lower management: Jump ship; corp doesn't care about you anymore than the rest of us.

    Upper management: Stop paying huge bonuses to the fools running your company into the ground and restore basic benefits to workers.

    Pros

    Great pay because of the union contract in place giving workers an opportunity for raises. Raises were given every 500 hours so the more you work the more raises given

    Cons

    This company uses part time labor to fill hours so they don't have to pay benefits.Preference given to full-time union workers because of their seniority.Basically you have to work there 2 to 3 years if you expect a full-time position to open up.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to show part time workers more respect by valuing their contribution to the company.Part time workers would stay with the company longer if they at least has an opportunity for benefits.
