From ambler,pa — 05/07/2009

Pay: i give this low score because i know other retailors pay more the union acts like they give us living wage jobs but the propaganda is believeable wish i never bought into it i dont believe them anymore


Respect: among customers and coworkers it was decent many picky custumers making it stressful

Benefits: blue cross blue shield cant get much better than that and 10% discount sometimes employee only coupons where nice too even benfits to parttime


Job Security: iam no longer employed by supervalu they shut down our store with out the union contract aproved rate of 20 days this company could careless about the only grocery store in town closing they claim to be a small town gorcery store but they shut it down anyway it fit the bussiness model they said they had


Work/Life Balance: i could go to school and work only problem was had to work holidays and lots of weekends wouldnt know if you were working the sunday until the friday before paid weekly was sweet and 2 weeks vacation after 3 years not bad for part time job


Career Potential/Growth: ive seen many people move up in the company and get fired i saw 5 people get fired at one time


Location: really close to home could walk there if needed but no longer there when they closed they wanted me to go to the city in a bad neighborhood

Co-worker Competence: varied from worker to worker most were seeking college education if they were younger but if they were older more career ortainted they were

Work Environment: its repetive and boring but it depends if the regulars come in and cheers you up and your co workers can be quite funny i miss my job i hope to find another small store to work at that way the work life balance is there

From oh — 01/28/2009

I used to work for a subsidiary/sister co. of supervalu. Many locations have since been sold to dollar tree. The pay was great when you consider the benefits had as a full timer. Raises every six months, until the freezing of pay with an alternative to small raises every six months.

Like everywhere else if they liked you and you worked hard you had job security. Same with career growth.

I had a pretty set schedule working full time, even though I was willing to work days and hours other people were not. I was happy to be flexible for my manager. I was still able to go to school full time and work full time.

I literally lived two minutes from where I worked. No complaints there.

Co-workers; as with any place this varies. Some very hard working and understandable, others just manipulators. What kills me is when management knows whats going on and does nothing about it; but I guess that's everywhere.

Overall the work environment was good. Short of the mice problem we had for a while, it wasn't too bad. The cleanliness of the store depended on how much the workers actually cared as opposed to just doing a job to get paid (which I did work with a few of those). Over a term of almost 4 years there was 3 different district managers, and two different store managers.
