Toxic Work Environment

Managers were truly awful. No respect for their employees. They do not communicate, meaning employees are set up for failure. Employees are talked down to with a passive aggressive tone and you are constantly reminded you are disposable. Managers would gossip about employees. After almost a year of work one manager barely knew my name, and did not even shake my hand as I left. Avoid at all costs.

Pros

5% rewards card (also available for customers)

Cons

Management, management, management

Nice place to work if your friends with other staff.

Love working here but only because some friends are also here. Supervisers and Management no longer allow us water while in the shop, we are expected to not talk to other staff while customers are around. Management expect us to work like dogs, while paying us the minimum wage for our age e.g. 9.09 for a 19year old. All of our contracts were renewed but still had probationary periods. Not to mention that dealing with the public means the customer is always right, even when they clearly are not. Would I recommend applying to work here? Absolutely. It really opens your eyes, and has given me confidence and made me a more realistic person.

Pros

Friends?

Cons

Management think very little of us.

Fast pace. Demanding Managers

Only got €7.70 per hour because I was under 18 whereas everyone else my age gets €10.20. Very demanding managers and not a fun workplace unless they aren't there. Amount of hours per week varies so part-time isn't ideal. I worked in Fruit and Veg and after two weeks of working there, I was thrown in the deep end and worked 8am-5pm on my own. I had no idea what to do as usually I was rostered for the evenings when it is quiet and majority of the stock has sold out.

Poor management

Constantly on your back always complains nothing if ever good enough no matter how many hours you put into the place. Complete disregard for anybody working there. I wouldn’t even go to the interview if I could turn back time.

Pros

Work life balance

Long hours, overworked, stressed constantly, huge pressure

Hard work full of stress.

During a job interview, promise one after the trial period offers less. The start date is pushed forward one month, with visible tax savings, and working hours are offered from 28 to 30 maximum 37. Overtime is not paid. Family business...

Pros

Free tea

Cons

A lot of extra work

Stressful, bad management, low pay.

Horrible place to work, store manager is ignorant, rude and only cares about numbers and treats staff like dirt, expected to do the work of two people in an impossible amount of time, nothing is ever good enough regardless of how hard you work, never got my entitled breaks as there was just not enough time to take them and if the work wasn't done you were expected to stay past your shift end time.Old equipment not fit for purpose, birds regularly got into the bakery which I would consider a food safety issue, the racks the bread was baked on were filthy, any concerns we had were dismissed, training was minimal at best. Stay Away you will regret working here.

Pros

None

Cons

Friendly, fast pace environment

Everyone with SuperValu were really friendly, management could be painful to deal with sometimesSadly it felt like a dead end job, opportunities for trainee management but generally the people I worked with were college students and so they didn't really care about SuperValu.Long days, especially stock take day, can be draining.Wages are bare minimum.

Pros

Friendly people

Cons

Wages, long hours

Checkout operator

I would not recommend working in SuperValu. Most of the other staff were nice, however management were not nice. Took advantage of staff, working conditions were not great. Employees must need to be able to handle stressful situations and sometimes the odd rude customer.

Cons

Long hours, poor pay

Worst experience ever and worst place to work.

Ended up losing my health because of the stress and the little hours, small pay, zero appreciation for any effort done, emotional and psihical stress and uncomfortably, rude, mpulsive and traumatic reactions from.some of the managers. Lost my marriage and the company refused to give me qny kind of support when i asled for help, ended up in depression and anxiety qfter they fired me for for

Pros

Traumas and regrets for working there, drove me in depeession and anxiety, that made me try to commit suicide

Cons

No tolerance for compasion towards sensitive issues you from the management, refuse to talk with the high management about the decisions related to me, no care about the companies actions towards employer's health, no opportunity of defending when you done nothing wrong, no chances to fair treatment

One of the good ones

It was a busy store most of the time and there were mostly friendly coworkers. Management has your back when it counts which was really nice. Working with people of all ages so there was a diverse work culture. Hardest part of the job was the monotony of the job. It was affecting my health being on tills all day every day non stop so I often asked to go on the floor and help there when all the tills were taken but management refused and put other people on instead and told me just to stand there. Dealing with all different types of customers was very enjoyable as well as helping people with their shopping as it let me get exercise.

Pros

Good wage; friendly coworkers; management mostly has your back

Cons

Long hours; cold shop; being forced to stay up at the tills despite there being none free

Never work for this company!!

I worked in SuperValu for a very short month. The WORST place to work management have there favorites and try to belittle you all the time. You don’t get paid extra on sundays or bank holidays which is a rip of , I’d be working from 9-3 and someone would call in sick at 3 and management would ask me to stay till 3-11 (off licence shift) even though I’m after been there since 9am!!! And then I’d be back working at 11!!! Also the main manager daughter is only 17 and she had her serving on the till selling smokes and alcohol? Isn’t the legal age 18??

Pros

None

Cons

Very bad management, don’t get paid for Sunday’s or important days

Cheap unfair labour.

SuperValu did not provide the legal minimum of breaks for me while working there, yet subtracted time for these breaks from my pay each week. I received very few hours each week and was paid poorly for what I did work. There were no benefits or discounts whatsoever, and overall the management were rarely friendly or helpful.
