    Pros

    Management overall believes in and practices servant leadership, the schedule is flexible, the pay is decent, and the benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    Sluggish career development and poor training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and they will help drive a sustainable competitive advantage. Before launching new programs or policies, talk to those who will be implementing them to make sure it really is a good idea.

    Pros

    Fast paced, benefits, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Under paid employees, hard to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more. Courtesy clerks should Atleast get paid $10/hr starting and clerks starting at $11/ he. Your employees work hard and are under paid.

    Pros

    You can go as far as you push yourself. Many members of senior management started as courtesy clerks and worked their way up.

    Cons

    Unionized stores! Causes more harm than good.

    I have been working at Raley's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    decent store environments, well funded, decent customer base.

    Cons

    Sociopathic employers. Abusive, degrading from store directors to medical contractors, to insurance carriers and top dogs in company. They are universally corrupt and indifferent to the suffering of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider all aspects of employee well being as a means of making more money, it will. This is the language you speak so: consider being a people company in the interest of huge dividends this will passively produce all on it's own, since, this is all you care about.

    Pros

    Benefits (sorta), they work around your school schedule.

    Cons

    They treat employees like crap. Store directors are jerks. They are union and the union screws with everything. It's a horrible job for horrible pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT'S A GROCERY STORE. NO ONE RESPECTS YOU. JUST RELAX.

    Former Employee - Front-end Clerk in South Lake Tahoe, CA (US)

    I worked at Raley's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked as a bagger and then moved up to clerk. From the day I started, the store was filled with friendly faces. In the summer time, it it fairly common to work 40 hours a week and get some overtime. Reasonable pay raise if you stick with the company. The floor managers are all very approachable if you ever have any issues or comments. The fast pace summer really prepares you for all the types of stress. Training and learning curve is straight forward,remembering codes for vegetables is toughest part. You also get to know the locals very well, given the size of the town.

    Cons

    After the summer months, hours are severely cut. Sometimes you get your hours, sometime you get stuck with less. There is a lot of turnover as well, even from my last day a year ago to now, the top level management is completely different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Careful about over-hiring
