fun workplace with good coworkers
there was never a dull moment in supervalu. There was always something to do for example on delivery day you'd have tons to be doing. Then on a normal day have plenty to do with tidying shelves

Badly managed, minimal staff. Stressful environment with low morale.
Every day was stressful with managers trying to use as little staff as possible to get a big shop looking good. Bad work environment, no one looks out for you. Morale across the board is low, even among lower management. No incentives, no rewards, no staff discounts. Customers can see how badly run and managed it is.

Exciting and also challenging.
I enjoy my time working at Supervalu. I find the work fast paced and the day is always busy. The work is varied and includes stock taking, packing shelves, helping people pack their shopping and working at the till. I work as part of a team and there is a great sense of friendship and collaboration. We all cooperate to ensure the smooth running of the store. I particularly enjoy meeting customers and being friendly and helpful to all. I respect my manager who has a very challenging role to ensure that the store is adequately staffed, shelves are packed and a high standard of service is provided for all customers. I am always cooperative and flexible. I enjoy being challenged and adapt easily to any new role that I am assigned. I don't find any part of the job difficult. I have learned that the main priority of my job is to ensure that the needs of the customer are always met.

Working in SuperValu is a huge opportunity you can learn so many different skills
Smiling helps when your working in an environment like this one. Don't ever get to worked up about not knowing what your doing or not knowing where certain products go because you will catch on eventually.

Meh
I worked there as work experience. I didn't enjoy it as I was doing the same thing every day.

I would have preferred to do other things like work at the deli or at the tills

Worst place ever
Managed extremely poorly. Hours are terrible. Mangers talk to you like children, no respect! No respect and no opportunity for long term staff.The pay is very bad. The turnover in staff is huge, for good reason. A lot of people leave due to anxiety over the way there spoken to each day. Save yourself.
Pros
Non
Cons
Too many

Uncaring managers
Very unorganised, there was no clear job duties etc.
The managers did not care and overtime was not paid ever.

I was on the aisles mainly.

Would not recommend.

Monotonous work
Okay, its basically stacking shelves and its not difficult.

Biggest problem with this job is that you don't know when you will be asked to work from week to week. It can go from being asked to work overtime one week to being asked to only work something like 12 hours the following week. Pay rate would want to be very high for that not to be an issue.


Management seem to be trying to pick things up as they go along - they are often firefighting and quick to apportion blame when the smallest issue arises.
Pros
Nothing to speak of really
Cons
Haphazard style of management, unpredictable work hours, employees are intimidated into staying after hours if a certain manager hasn't inspected their work, employees are barely thanked for their contribution to the business

A fantastic working environment
If you enjoy working with local people and dealing with local customers supervalu is great. The small wage is its only downfall, If supervalu offered the living wage it would certainly be a 5 star employer.
Pros
Helpful management
Cons
Long hours

enjoyable place to work apart from work hours. not ideal.
i had a love hate relationship with SuperValu. the store itself had its problems like any workplace. the work hours are not ideal, i.e. starting at 12.30 and finishing at 21.30, it left it difficult to do anything else but work!
the hours would be ideal for a college student at the weekend, but if you're an adult with a life, it can get very frustrating. you're literally dying for your next day off.

Work wise it is not stressful or strenuous, i enjoyed the work and my work colleagues, management in our store were always very obliging especially with holidays and days off.
